firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout
North America, today announced it will serve as the evening event
sponsor and showcase its expertise at the Microsoft
Lync Conference. The Lync Conference will be held Feb. 19 – 21 in
San Diego, Calif., and is the first ever conference dedicated to
communications professionals looking to learn and network with the
entire Lync community.
Microsoft Lync Server combines voice, instant messaging, audio, video,
and web conferencing into a richer, more simplified solution for
organizations looking to transform their business communications into
more collaborative and engaging interactions. As one of only seven

“Enterprise communications have become increasingly complex as more
information is readily available to more people and in multiple formats.
At a time when access to expertise and knowledge sharing is critical to
business success, our clients are looking for ways to harness innovation
and improve workforce productivity through improved communication tools
and by removing communication barriers,” said Matt McGillen, director of
unified communications for Perficient. “Lync is the only application
that brings all communications together in a single, simple way for
users. With other solutions you find that you need a new username and
password, and a different application for everything: phone, IM, audio
conferencing, web conferencing are all separate silos. Integrating Lync
with current applications enables more seamless and effective
collaboration and communication within today’s organizations.”
Newly-Designated Lync Certifications Attest to Client Support and
Perficient recently was named one of 15 Microsoft partners in the United

technical excellence, and Perficient is one of a handful of partners
with multiple Lync MCMs.
“For all the great improvements to communication that Lync brings, it
does require expertise to do a Lync deployment right. And it doesn’t end
there; supporting the environment after Lync has been rolled out is very
important to the well-being of our clients,” continued McGillen. “To
ensure our consultants can provide the best service and experience to
our clients, Perficient has invested in the certification process. With
two Lync MCM consultants and our recent PSLP certification, we are proud
to be one of very few partners that can provide top-notch support for
our clients in the whole lifecycle, not just during deployment.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
