Skype for Business Competition – Share Your Story and Win

I remember when Skype first came out – it was cool but seemed like more of a novelty. Why bother using an online service to make free phone calls when pretty much anyone I needed to call was covered by my flat rate long distance plan? (Clearly I have no international friends, but that’s not the point of this particular article.)

The company just launched a contest for Skype business customers and want stories of how you’re using the tools in innovative ways to save time, save money or stay ahead.
