Currently Microsoft is developing an exclusive version of Skype which they will first introduce in the US. This exceptional version will provide a Skype Professional-Account for small business owners and freelancers. This was announced on Microsoft’s official blog. This unique version will have new and powerful features which will be a great help for conducting your business online. At the moment you can use email for the arrangement of a Skype call, whilst you can use calendar software for scheduling Skype-meetings. However, a 3rd party provider will be managing your online payments. With this new and exciting version you will be able to do the following: book various meetings, meet your clients, accepting payments, keeping notes of tasks, which will all be accessible in the new app. This Professional version of Skype will help people who are providing their services remotely, whether you are a personal trainer, yoga teacher, writer or artist. With the Skype Professional, entrepreneurs and freelancers will have the power doing all these functions, using only one app. It will enable you to teach remotely, accept payments easily and book lessons. For the improvement of a user’s online presence, they added an enhanced profile-page. With this, business hours and offerings could be seen by their contacts via an assigned website for entrepreneurs added onto Skype. It will be possible to have access to your notes even without having to leave the app. You will be able to port all your contacts to Skype’s Professional Account-Preview desktop client, whilst your clients will continue to use their usual Skype app working with you. Your customers will also be able to use the Skype Professional version, finding businesses applicable to them, enabling them to find the kind of professional with whom they want to cooperate on their project. The Skype Professional Account will clear the way for thousands of entrepreneurs and freelancers connecting with their customers and taking their businesses forward from one place.
