Lync Meetings - another way for us to keep connected with you

McCullough Robertson is very excited to be the first law firm in Australia to use Lync 2013.

It is a great way of working and collaborating with our clients.  Lync gives us more options when we want to communicate, for example:

  • video conference directly from the desktop (either one-to-one or a with a group)
  • share and collaborate on documents and programs in real time with no delays
