For those who are brand or legally conscious the appearance and content of your teams email signatures is of some importance. With so much communication these days via email from desktops, laptops and mobile devices, it is almost impossible to keep everyone’s presentation and standardised. Factor in a change of branding or a new promotion and it becomes a complete headache if you have any number of staff. If this is you; then you should perhaps consider CodeTwo’s excellent offering in this area.
We recently has cause to test their “Email Signatures for Office 365” solution at a client’s behest and it took only 3 days for me to decide to adopt it for ourselves. Setup is not challenging, the implementation of signatures can be done globally, per team (via groups likely already defined) or per individual. This allows you to easily define a new signature for all, or perhaps just the sales team for example, quickly and easily from the centre with a few clicks of the mouse. Irrelevant of what device they are using, you get a consistent presentation to your clients and contacts
I was so impressed … we became a reseller, a customer and very happy to recommend this product to our clients using Microsoft office 365. We figure a product from the same stable providing solutions to the likes of Shell, L’Oréal, UPS and McDonalds is good enough for our valued clients and at a price that will pleasantly surprise you. A no risk, 14 day trial is available on request.

After starting a campaign 20 months ago to improve broadband in Orton Southgate, a campaign that turned into a city wide effort; I was delighted this morning to see the first signs of groundworks from Peterborough Core here in Bakewell Road.
For the few of you who perhaps haven’t heard already, Peterborough Core is a gigabit network providing one of the best broadband speeds for internet anywhere in the country.. a full 1GB upload and download and for considerably less money than a BT lease line! It was a long campaign, but hopefully in the next few weeks it will be proven too have been worth the effort
Chrome; Google’s popular browser, now blocks plugin support for Java and Silverlight with their latest release 42. Although there is a workaround for the short term, even that ceases in September 2015
While we have some sympathy for the stated reason; as even up to date Java has been a security and stability headache for some time, this move will likely alienate many who have to use websites still dependent on Java especially. Owners of legacy websites may also find that Chrome users may not be able to use their site as intended.
Users of the Microsoft Lync 2013 application have the opportunity to update to the official release of Skype for Business 2015.
As far as we can see at this point: most users will notice a revised interface and one or two nice little features such as drag and drop file transfer and improved video conferencing. Integration with the Skype directory is also much improved. A full convergence with Skype it is not … as yet. System administrators however may be happier about this than their users
The update, although labelled as an update to Lync 2013, will update your client application to Skype for Business 2015. For more information and downloads, see the Microsoft KB page here : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2889923/
