Microsoft Lync is rapidly growing. Because of this, compatibility with Lync has become increasingly critical. Ask a vendor if they support Lync. It is entirely possible that they will say yes. But can you take their word for it?

When it comes to Lync compatibility, there is only one source you should trust: Microsoft. They have created a qualifications program for application developers. As part of this program, vendors undergo stringent compatibility testing by an independent third party. Only then are they able to call themselves Lync compatible.

Microsoft puts a focus on the user, saying:

"The testing focus of the program is designed to ensure that vendors providing interoperability with Microsoft unified communications solutions do so in a consistent and supportable manner, including SIP and signaling support used with the Mediation Service in Lync Server and the Voice Mail role of Exchange Server."

Being certified as compatible for Lync 2013, Microsoft ensures that customers using ISI’s collaboration reporting solution, or Verba’s collaboration recording solution, will have a seamless user experience with Lync.

When it comes to understanding the importance of Lync compatibility, there is no better source than Microsoft. For a list of compatible Lync applications, simply go to http://catalog.lync.com.

Don’t trust your system to an untested application!
