  • Supports integration with OCS and Lync features such as chat and call
  • Does not require installation or configuration on client servers. Configuration and integration happens through MS Communicator Web Access (CWA) for OCS 2007 and Lync 2010, or Unified Communications Web Access (UCWA) for Lync 2013
