Skype in the workspace beta promoting small business success

Screen shot 2012-07-10 at 1.04.52 PM.pngIt’s hard to believe that only six weeks ago, we introduced you to our new free service for small business, Skype in the workspace. It’s a community we’re nurturing to help businesses like yours connect and grow. You can find potential collaborators, suppliers or customers anywhere in the world, and then connect through Skype IM, voice or video chats.

We’re still in beta, and have been getting insightful feedback from our pioneer users (thank you!) We count on this input to help us shape the community, to ensure it remains useful and user-centric.

If you missed out on getting in on the ground floor, we’re looking for more users to test and stretch the service–why not request an invite today? It takes less than a minute.
