📢 Update -Microsoft named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for UCaaS and UC

Microsoft has been recognized as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for UCaaS and UC.  Our team takes great pride in this distinction for these workloads. For this distinction, a vendor must have a minimum of 50 published reviews with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher.


In its announcement Gartner explains, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate.


Here are a few customer quotes from the 400+ peer reviews* Microsoft has received for the market Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide:


“We can do instant messaging, can send any type of document and do video or audio call, [and] can send gifs/Emojis… It allows arranging and participating in meetings...Can make a group call which makes it more powerful”

“The one thing I like is its web version which has all the functionality which is there on the desktop version. Moreover, other features such as video/ audio calls, they are fast and awesome. The other thing which I love is that it has both web, desktop and mobile client so even if you are away from your workstation, the ping right away arrives in your mobile phone and you never miss important communications.”
