Office 365 is too key to the business world for forward-looking technology companies to ignore. Switch, a cloud-based business phone system provider, announced yesterday it is now fully integrated with Office 365 and also offers an open version allowing any business in the U.S. to sign up.
“Any size business that moves to Google Apps and Office 365 understands the value of the cloud,” CEO Craig Walker wrote. “IT departments at enterprises that are making the move really, really understand it. They know that employees need to be productive when they work remotely, whether it’s down the block or on the road, and having on-premise email, calendar and documents doesn’t make sense any more. Cloud adoption is inevitable, not just for productivity suites but for business phones, too.”
Switch was built around the WebRTC framework, which continues to be heralded and updated by Google, Firefox and Microsoft, and now has data centers in Australia, Asia, Europe and the U.S. to keep multi-national customers connected.
