Do you integrate CRM with Microsoft Skype for Business?
  v10.0 Posted at 23/12/2016 11:49 AM by William Yin

​SkypePOP is an easy to use screen pop application that supports Office 365, Microsoft Skype for Business and Microsoft Dynamics CRM and CRM Online, maximizing your investment in these two leading applications.

Even though it works great for direct calls on Skype for Business, transferred calls will not show the CRM entry of the person being transferred. This is because SkypePOP will always recognize the person who transfers the call as the actual caller.

SkypePOP can be purchased from appVnet website.

This tool is vital for sales staff and receptionists as a minimum.
