London, UK, October 26 2017: StarLeaf, leading provider of meeting room solutions for Microsoft Skype for Business, is the first manufacturer to announce that it has successfully completed interoperability testing for its GTm family of systems with Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Office 365. This announcement places StarLeaf at the forefront in the race to deliver Microsoft Teams compatible solutions.

At its Ignite customer conference in September, Microsoft stated that Teams is expected to replace cloud-based Skype for Business. Since then, video conferencing and meeting room manufacturers have scrambled to push out statements confirming their commitment to interoperability with Teams. However, StarLeaf is the first vendor to publicly announce that it has completed initial testing. These tests verify that StarLeaf is in a position to fully address the requirement for solutions that work with both Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.

“With the Teams announcement, many of Microsoft’s enterprise customers, who have or who will be deploying Skype for Business, are left questioning the impact of Teams and what it means to their meeting room strategy and ongoing investments,” said Jonathan Williams, Director for StarLeaf’s Microsoft business solutions. “Our position and product direction is clear. No matter what course Microsoft’s platform takes, we are fully onboard and committed to delivering enterprise meeting room and management solutions that work today and more importantly in the future.” For further information visit StarLeaf and Microsoft Teams.
