"The solution can scale well."

"The most valuable feature is how useful it has been for virtual meetings during the pandemic."
"I have found Skype for Business to be stable."
"The security seems good."
"I think Skype for Business is scalable. However, I believe Microsoft is discontinuing the Skype platform altogether, so I don't think it's super-relevant."
"The deployment is very fast."
"The solution is easy to use and includes the ability to text message, video and voice chat, and transfer files."
"Skype for Business is good for meetings and instant messaging."
"I like the seamless integration to local telecommunications."
"The price is a problem."
"Adobe's products are difficult to grasp."
"Microsoft Teams, as I see it now, is more useful than Skype for Business."
"There might be some invitation issues with Skype for Business."
"The solution requires deployment on a Microsoft server and its performance is heavy because it consumes too many resources from the RAM."
"Skype for Business could improve by having a document channel or repository. Microsoft Teams has a better repository place for documents that you can share with your team. You can access it anywhere from any device."
"The technical support from Microsoft needs to be improved."
"Lacks a zoom-in feature for whoever is presenting."
"The challenge we had with Skype for Business was with the signing in when a user signed out and when signing in back in again, there was a bit of a problem. We switched from Skype for Business to Teams, and Teams never had that sign-in problem once we did the switch."
"I am not familiar with all of the features or whether they can hold conferences because we use Zoom for that. But, in my opinion, if they can do something similar to what Zoom is doing, it will be a complete solution."
