How Microsoft Lync evolves the education experience, improve staff & student learning/collaboration while driving down costs

I am delighted to invite you and your colleagues to join us at Microsoft London (Cardinal Place) for a Lync education event on the 4th March 2011.


Modern education establishments require a modern communications solution. One that enables staff, students, external bodies to connect effortlessly with each other, regardless of location, the device they're using or the type of content they want to share.
Lync Server 2010 is that solution. Its unified feature set brings colleagues together, promoting collaboration, flexible working and responsiveness. A familiar Microsoft interface and compatibility with popular Microsoft software makes it simple to adopt. All in all, working with Lync Server could enable you to reduce total cost of ownership by 39 per cent, relative to other solutions*.
To demonstrate how Lync Server can help your organisation improve communications, productivity and profitability, we invite you to share the experiences of those that have already invested in the next generation of Unified Communications technology.
