Starting in October, Mac customers will be able to experience the Lync integrated communications experience. From the updated contact cards to the ability to set up Lync conferences from Outlook 2011 for Mac to enterprise voice features, Lync for Mac 2011 offers Mac users integrated functionality for presence, instant messaging, conferencing and voice and is designed to work with both Lync Server 2010 and Lync Online.
Microsoft has committed to making Lync fully cross platform, with plans to release clients for iPhone, Android and Symbian, and with the MacOS release it means device mix should be no barrier to corporate deployment.
Lync for Mac 2011 is available to customers as a part of the Office for Mac 2011 Volume Licensing SKU, Office for Mac Standard 2011, or through many of Microsoft’s Licensing programs. Customers can also purchase the application as a standalone volume licensing SKU.
