VooServers have been deploying and maintaining phone systems based on Microsoft VOIP technology since Office Communications Server 2007 and we are now pleased to announce that our first customer upgrade from Lync 2013 to Skype for Business Server 2015 has been completed.
Skype for Business brings together the well-known VOIP brand of Skype with the advanced technology of Microsoft Lync to create a product which is being rated as one of the best PBX replacements on the market for enterprise communications.
Skype for Business introduces a change in the UI to the previous Lync 2013 clients to create a much more similar interface to that of Skype for Desktop which users have been using for personal communications for years. This on its own is driving user adoption and making communication processes in the workplace more seamless than ever before.
Here at VooServers we are excited about the changes and so are our clients with a number of upgrades scheduled over the coming weeks as well as a number of new deployments for companies looking to migrate away from their traditional phone systems to the more unified communications platform that Skype for Business offers.
If you are as excited as we are about Skype for Business then give us a call today on 0800 0803 200 and speak to one of our representatives about your communications requirements.

VooServers are once again proud to support and sponsor the Medway Sunlight Rotary Club Dragon Boat Challenge in aid of Children’s Hospice Holidays and other Rotary supported charities.
On Sunday 24th May the annual Dragon Boat Challenge returns to Basin 2, St Mary’s Island, Chatham Maritime as 24 teams battle it out on the water. Racing 40 ft brightly coloured Chinese war canoes, teams of 16 paddlers and a drummer trying to keep them in time will race across the Basin against the clock. Each team will have 3 races to set the fastest time and qualify for the final race to decide the winner of the coveted trophy.
Rotarian Bill Parkinson, captain of the Steering Committee which has organised the racing, said “last year we had tremendous fun and raised over £5000 for charity and this year with even more boats entered we think that it will be even more successful. Racing starts at 11am and I would encourage everyone to come on down and watch this free event.”
Further details can be found at Medway Sunlight Rotary’s Website.

It’s been exactly 2 years since our last website revision and we are now proud to present the new VooServers website featuring a modern yet simplistic design geared towards the technical market. The new design also incorporates a number of responsive elements to adapt to all shapes of screen and mobile devices to provide the best user experience for the device you are accessing our website on.
Approaching our 10 year anniversary we decided an overhaul was necessary in-line with the significant changes and growth we have experienced in the past 2 years. With a number of new services having been launched such as public, private and hybrid cloud as well as launching data centres in Frankfurt and New York City the old website didn’t represent where we are today as a company.
Work is still on-going on some sections of the website so please bear with us whilst we complete the work. If you notice anything amiss please let us know via one of our social media channels or by e-mailing email@example.com.

On the 27th of November 2014 VooServers participated as sponsors of the KM charity team’s Kent Cooks competition held in the excellent facilities at East Kent College in Broadstairs. Our technical director Matt Parkinson pictured on the left with Iosbella McAuley, one of the primary school category finalists and Dan Kennedy from the Kent Cookery school was sent along to judge the dishes being entered.
Matt said that the judging process was “an exciting yet difficult one” and that he enjoyed “a mouth-watering morning looking at the dishes being prepared before he could finally taste them.”
The level of entries was outstanding with more dishes entered this year than ever before. The entrants were a range of ages from 4 years old up to 16. Some of the dishes that were prepared included a Whitstable wharf pie, spicy meatballs and seasonal stuffed aubergines each with a side to complement. There were also a number of deserts prepared in some of the categories which Matt thoroughly enjoyed with his sweet tooth! The deserts included Strawberry and Basil Cheesecake, Caramel Cheesecake, Abbie’s Chocolate Dream and a vanilla jelly with fruit compote.
The VooServers team would like to say well done to everyone that took part and a big congratulations to the winners below who excelled in preparation, presentation and taste.
The winners received a share of £500 along with a certificate, Masterchef cook book and goody bag.
