PhoneTools for Lync

PhoneTools from estos are innovative telephony assistants that have been developed specifically for Microsoft Skype for Business/Lync. They add useful CTI functions to the Microsoft Skype for Business/Lync client.

Microsoft Skype for Business/Lync users can now, as already known from estos CTI solutions, highlight a call number in Windows applications, e.g. in Internet Explorer, and start a call with a keystroke (hotkey). This saves the user tedious copying or retyping. The hotkey can be defined specifically for a user in order to ensure trouble-free operation even with keys already pre-assigned by other applications.
