Microsoft Communications Online



Microsoft Office Communications Online provides your organization with next-generation communications capabilities, including presence, instant messaging (IM), and PC-to-PC audio and video calling. Office Communications Online delivers embedded presence and a ""click-to-communicate"" experience with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft SharePoint Server.


Agile organizations can react swiftly and respond effectively to opportunities and challenges. Microsoft® Office Communications Online delivers robust instant messaging (IM) and presence functionality that enables real-time person-to-person communication across an organization. Through presence awareness, workers can quickly detect a colleague’s availability for a time-sensitive consult or business-critical decision—and then connect rapidly using a reliable, security-enhanced IM solution.


Whether team members are in the next room or on the next continent, the powerful combination of presence awareness and IM can help improve productivity, drive business efficiencies, and build a more agile organization.


Office Communications Online helps simplify IT management by removing the need to deploy, configure, monitor and update/upgrade a communications and collaboration solution on premises. The service administrator has access to an easy-to-use online Administration Center console for managing user accounts and services. Office Communications Online also includes upgrades to new release versions at no additional charge, which shifts the burden for upgrade planning and execution from you to Microsoft.
