SKC Communications Achieves Microsoft Skype Operations Framework (SOF) Certification

SHAWNEE MISSION, Kan. – SKC Communications has been named a Microsoft Skype Operations Framework (SOF) featured partner. The Skype Operations Framework (SOF) is Microsoft’s multi-faceted approach to the successful deployment of Office 365 Skype for Business. It covers the entire customer lifecycle, including planning, delivery, adoption, operations, and migrations.

 “We are excited to achieve the Microsoft Skype Operations Framework (SOF) certification, as it shows that SKC has the resources and commitment needed to allow our customers to focus on their core competencies and have the peace of mind that SKC is following the SOF methodology to ensure end user adoption and success,” said Jeff Holton, Chief Technology Officer of SKC Communications. “SKC is the single partner who can design, build, and manage voice, video, IM, and A/V networks.”

The Skype Operations Framework (SOF) provides a foundation for customers and partners to accelerate success with their Skype for Business Online journey. Be it small or large organizations, SOF provides the methodology to guide customers and partners on when and how to use the included tools and assets to drive their Skype for Business migration or deployment while delivering quality and reliability. This is a major benefit for many who, in the past, had to figure out how to navigate their deployment on their own; customers and partners can now build their own delivery capabilities using the SOF delivery methodology as the foundation.

Partnering with SKC to help with your cloud communications service deployment will accelerate your organization’s transition while also reducing the impact to your end users. SKC will implement a plan and drive adoption across the organization based on Microsoft’s Skype Operations Framework with expert guidance to ensure the deployment is done right the first time. SKC’s service builds on an architecture and environmental assessment, dial plan development, PSTN planning, & SKC’s 16+ years in deploying collaboration environments across multiple manufacturers and business verticals.
