Skype For Business voice deployment is set to rocket by 250% over the coming year with millions more users turning to the technology.

To help resellers capitalise on the huge growth opportunities supply specialist Nimans, Microsoft and end point manufacturer Yealink hosted an awareness day at the Belfry golf and leisure resort in the Midlands – where dozens of guests discovered the latest market trends and industry developments.

Keynote speaker Ian Woolner – Microsoft’s Skype for Business Development Professional – was joined by Ian Brindle from Nimans and Yealink General Manager, Steve Watts.

Ian, Nimans’ Head of Conferencing and Telephony Sales outlined the massive market potential and explained: “Globally 75m people work from home and there are 600m mobile workers along with one billion office cube spaces. Full collaboration of voice, video and content sharing is the way forward with Skype For Business (SFB) revolutionising the way many people work.”

Resellers learned how Yealink is ideally positioned in the modern workplace with its new T4X series of stylish SFB handsets – that combine cutting edge audio performance with supreme functionality.

Attendees also heard about Nimans’ ‘cradle to grave’ Skype For Business end point support programme that features ‘zero touch’ auto provisioning, buy-back, remote estate management, bonded warehouse storage and WEEE environmental disposal. Ian added: “The whole culture of the meeting room experience has changed. Smaller type huddle rooms are popping up everywhere.”

Speaking afterwards, Ian Brindle emphasised: “The day was a resounding success and proved the perfect stage to outline how SFB is set to rocket even more in 2017. Nimans, Yealink and Microsoft are ideally placed to help resellers maximise market opportunities.”
