Skype for Business Online will be retired on July 31st, 2021, after which it will no longer be accessible or supported. While the Skype for Business Online service will be fully functional until then, we encourage users to begin their journey today, allowing ample time to complete your upgrade prior to the retirement date.

Microsoft Teams extends the capabilities of Skype for Business, bringing together chat, meetings, calling, collaboration, app integration, and file storage into a single interface. This new central hub for teamwork can help streamline the way users get things done. Improving user satisfaction and accelerating business outcomes. Microsoft are continually expanding Teams’ capabilities to enable you to communicate and collaborate in new ways. Breaking down organisational and geographical barriers, and driving efficiency in process and decision making.
Once you have Microsoft Teams in place you can further enhance your solution by adding Microsoft 365 Business Voice, which provides Audio Conferencing and a UK calling plan.
Upgrading from Skype for Business to Teams is more than a technical migration. It represents a transformation in how users communicate and collaborate, and change is not always easy. The ideal upgrade approach should address the technical aspects of your upgrade as well as encourage user acceptance and adoption of Teams. This drives a positive user experience and business outcome realisation.
