"I can't even express how good the new Skype deployment is. Whenever I need to have conference calls or share a document and edit it, it is so easy. It makes us so much more efficient in terms of meetings and gives us better visibility.“
Marketing Sciences visited Cisilion’s offices for some discovery sessions, where they discussed challenges and timelines. Cisilion’s Innovation Centre was key, as they saw the different technologies in action. It became clear that the best solution for Marketing Sciences was Microsoft Skype for Business Enterprise Cloud Voice. This was deployed across the whole company.
The Skype for Business solution has resulted in multiple business benefits, with more to come. This includes:
- Now have one, integrated solution
- Less user training and quicker adoption

- Reduced service and maintenance for on-premise equipment
- Greater control and visibility of in-office and mobile workers
