During his presentation, Barron will discuss the pros and cons of Microsoft Lync Online and how it compares to other UCaaS offerings in the marketplace.

"It is important for cloud solution providers to know what new products and services are available in today's cloud marketplace in order to better assess customer's needs," said Barron.
