AVST CEO Leads Session on Best Practices for Adopting Skype for Business at SCTC Fall Conference

Paves the Way for Enterprises on the Journey Toward Their Digital Future

ATLANTA, Oct. 5, 2015 This week at the SCTC Fall Conference in Atlanta, Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST) President & CEO Hardy Myers is a key presenter that will share best practices, insights, case studies and tips for enterprise decision makers as they begin their journey toward the transition to Skype for Business.  Myers's presentation is titled, "Best Practices for Accelerating Skype for Business Adoption" and will take place on October 6.

The presentation by Myers comes at a time when Skype for Business is emerging as a viable replacement for an enterprise's PBX. In fact, many analysts predict Microsoft will achieve a top three position as a global telephony provider by 2016. "Many enterprises are at the beginning of a complex, evolutionary journey as Skype for Business becomes a critical part of their Unified Communications solutions set," said Myers. "I look forward to sharing the knowledge we've gained as a Microsoft partner and UC solution provider for over three decades to help make the enterprise journey to Skype for Business as smooth as possible."

As a longtime Microsoft Partner, AVST has achieved Microsoft Gold Communications Competency for its CX-E solution integrated to Skype for Business, as well as Microsoft Gold Messaging Competency, distinguishing itself within the top one percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem. This portfolio of gold competencies validates AVST's expertise in Microsoft technology and demonstrates its commitment to meeting customers' technology needs.
