XPhone Connect Directory

Skype for Business Logo

Using the XPhone Connect Directory, practically any data source can be connected to Skype for Business. The result: whether ERP, CRM or cloud service – all data sources are available directly in the Skype client via free-text search, whereby both advanced searches can be carried out and exclusion criteria defined. The original file is always accessed; data is not replicated. The permissions can be assigned based on Active Directory users and security groups. Applications are integrated without programming: via Drag & Drop, any data fields can be assigned in the XPhone Connect Directory and made available centrally for all Skype clients (Windows, MAC & mobile).

But not only company contacts are of relevance for everyday tasks. Whether you are looking for a hotel or a car hire company, XPhone permits access to the entire Telefonbuch Deutschland, thereby making more than 30 million official contact data items available in the Skype client. This data is simultaneously used as caller ID: for reliable identification even of callers who have not been previously stored in any company data base.
