Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, 4 December 2012

Ordina is expanding its services in the field of Unified Communications &
Collaboration with the launch of 'Lync-in-the-box'. Lync-in-the-box allows
companies to explore all the possibilities of Microsoft's Unified Communications
platform Lync Server without obligation. Ordina is today presenting its services
in the field of Unified Communications & Collaborations at the Social Enterprise
Society (SES) Lync Day 2012 in Bussum, the Netherlands.

"Unified Communications and Collaboration is one of our innovation themes," says
Barend de Zoete, Director of Professional Services & Projects.  "It offers
companies the opportunity to work much more efficiently, regardless of the
locations of any individual employee. The launch of Lync-in-the-box is an
important step in the expansion of our services in this area. Providing a
combination of software solutions like Lync with our know-how of company
processes and the implementation of Samen Slimmer Werken (working smarter
together) means we can truly support our customers in every aspect of Unified
Communications and new ways of working. Current technology makes that possible.
However, the way it is implemented is what makes sure that users can and will
actually work in the most optimum way. I am proud that we can support our
customers in all of these areas."

Lync integrates all business communications in a single platform, combined with
information about the physical availability of a person. This allows employees
to very quickly see the best way to contact a colleague, whether this via
telephone, chat or e-mail. Long-distance cooperation and discussions are also
more efficient with Lync. For instance you can arrange a conference call and
everybody can work on the same document simultaneously.

Lync Server integrates all business communications, from chat to work meeting,
in a single platform. Companies interested in the software can apply it in their
own test environment for 30 days. Lync-in-the-box is available for EUR 2,499.
Ordina will configure and install LyncÔ Server in the company, as part of the
solution. The box also contains all necessary equipment, such as webcams and
headsets for 25 employees. These users also receive a temporary 30-day licence
for Microsoft Office 365/Lync Online. Following a brief basic training course,
they can explore and experience the Unified Communications platform for this
trial period, with support from Ordina.
