Contact Card displays detailed information about people and provides one-click access to several ways of communicating with someone. Lync allows you to send an instant message, start a call, or send an email message directly from someone’s contact card. You can also check free/busy information from the person’s Microsoft outlook calendar, schedule a meeting, and use the Organization tab to determine where the person fits into his or her organization.
