CallTower Launches Site for Lync™ IP PBX product

Building on momentum in the current “cloud integration” arena, CallTower has announced its launch of a new website based on Microsoft’s Enterprise Lync Server 2010. The new site-called NextUC---is multi---tenant and hosted. Based on Microsoft Lync, it will allow small businesses use of enterprise-class, unified communications tools. Targeted at companies with 100 or less employees, this site, described as a “complete” solution for business communications, will enable such options as voice, video, conferencing, and chat across a myriad of devices and software platforms.

Microsoft’s Lync is a program combining conference capabilities, telephony services, and other related tools into an integrated platform. NextUC aims to be a “one-stop shop” for these collaboration tools and services by compiling them all into a cloud-based platform usable through multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac (iOS), and even mobile devices like Blackberry. The site will be subscription-based, and with its variety of services, it’s quite cost-friendly, making NextUC that much more desirable to small business owners. Such enhanced technology---most notably, efficiency through unified communications and mobile capabilities---sets NextUC apart. Small business owners will at last be able to reap all the benefits of a fully integrated enterprise telephony and messaging collaboration option, along with all that Lync already provides.
