“As a Microsoft Gold Partner, and a provider of advanced IT solutions at the customer premise and in the cloud, Intrust IT is well positioned to deploy Lync to any enterprise,” said Tim Rettig, chief executive officer for Intrust IT. “The Sangoma NetBorder Lync Express removes the challenges of configuring and deploying the telephony component of a full Lync implementation.
