Umniah to adopt Microsoft's 'Skype for Business' p


Microsoft Jordan has deployed the enterprise communications solution, 'Skype for Business', for Umniah.

“The new 'Skype for Business' platform maintains the same services as Lync, including enterprise security, encrypted calling, online meetings and content sharing, while delivering new and improved features to better and more cost-effectively facilitate work operations,” said Microsoft.

Umniah’s implementation of the new system was carried out by Professional Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (PAIS), a Microsoft Infrastructure Services company operating in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

"We are thrilled with Umniah's progressive decision to upgrade to ‘Skype for Business’, and we are confident that the software will quickly become a popular choice among customers across the Kingdom," said Hussein Malhas, Microsoft Jordan's country manager.

Waseem Al Rousan, IT manager of Umniah, added: “Umniah’s upgrade to the Skype for Business platform is a testimony to our company’s strong commitment to adopting the latest, most innovative and advanced collaborative solutions required by today’s businesses. At Umniah, we’re proud of our strategic partnership with Microsoft and of our status as the first Jordanian company to offer this service to our employees working in different business sectors.”
