Founded in 1987 and headquartered in Markham, Canada, ComputerTalk is an expert in custom communications-enabled business process applications. We are a member of the Microsoft Cloud Partner Alliance, Technology Adoption Program (TAP), and have two gold competencies in Communication and Application Development.


Certified for Skype for Business

ComputerTalk is certified for Skype for Business. The Skype for Business certification program is designed to help ensure that qualified applications meet customer expectations. The test plan for the certification is created and maintained by Microsoft, and testing is performed by independent third-party labs. Tests cover requirements for interoperability with Skype for Business Server, installation, performance and load, SDK and modality usage, set-up and configuration, documentation, and support.


Microsoft Network Competencies

Microsoft Partners with a Gold competency fulfill the requirements of being part of the Microsoft partner community. A Gold competency demonstrates best-in-class capability within a specific Microsoft solution area.

ComputerTalk has Gold Competencies in Communications and Application Development. To earn and maintain Gold competencies, members of our technical team passed technical assessments, exams, and certifications for Skype for Business, ice was validated for Windows Server, and customer references were vetted and approved by Microsoft. Having obtained these competencies indicates that ComputerTalk is a Microsoft recommended solution provider.


History with Microsoft

ComputerTalk has been a Microsoft Partner since 2005, when ComputerTalk added support for Microsoft Live Communication Server (LCS), predecessor to Lync and Skype for Business, to our offering to deliver instant messaging for internal help desks. In 2007, ComputerTalk incorporated the next version, Office Communication Server, into the core platform and began working with Microsoft UCMA (Unified Communication Managed API) version 1.0. With early access to Lync 2010 and UCMA 3.0, ComputerTalk committed to Lync as the enabling platform.

This commitment has cemented the strong relationship between ComputerTalk and Microsoft, illustrated by being named Communication Partner of the Year in 2012 and our ongoing participation in TAP, the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance and direct connections with the MSFT UC development teams.

How we help customers

ComputerTalk’s infrastructure handled the election extremely well, as evidenced by our fully functional call center that had zero incident execution on polling day. I was able to track all calls and agents, and redirect calls to other queues or add queues when things picked up. Reports were generated so quickly - instantaneously - enabling us to monitor volumes and status at all times.

We're going from an environment where the phone would ring and everyone would look around to see if someone was going to answer it, or say "I'm working on something, can someone else get it?" to having the capabilities and visibility that our supervisor and tier 2 team can watch and step in and help as needed.

ice for Skype for Business completely ties into email and everything Office 365 offers. All the hooks for our entire ecosystem are there. Where before it was 3 or 4 systems you had to work around in, now it’s all connected.

We brought in ice knowing we could connect with our CRM. Building something that truly integrated the CRM and contact center sounded nice in theory, but it is even better in practice.
