JAJAH (News - Alert), an easy to use "web-activated calling" solution having over 10 million users in over 200 countries, has been selected by Microsoft to provide Lync Online users the ability to call landlines and mobile phones, and to receive calls and route them to landline, mobile or computer without requiring a new telephone number.
"Once JAJAH became part of Telefónica we saw the combination of powerful platform with global scale and infrastructure, which made JAJAH the obvious choice for a project of this magnitude," said Gurdeep Singh Pall, CVP Lync Product Development, in a press release.
The new service will be fully integrated into Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync Online and offered across the globe via the Microsoft and Telefónica networks.
