There are industries where employees are subcontracted to multiple companies, which have hteir own skype for business setup, but dont suppor the use of external users, it would be great if all clients supported, a multi account sign in, like Outlook does with email. Allowing these employees to be in touch with all their associated companies properly.

This has been a standing request for a long time but because of the complexity it would add I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it. Of course you can vote on it here: https://www.skypefeedback.com/ Alternative options (some are pure crazy, but there they are! :P) 1-use bounSky to easily switch between accounts: https://bounsky.com/ 2-use Pidgin with OCS/Lync addin (only does IM/Presence): http://windowspbx.blogspot.com/2011/10/lync-30-second-tip-of-day-7-spell.html (Not Supported!) 3-some IP phones will do multiple accounts. this will just do voice/presence 4-use local virtualization: http://windowspbx.blogspot.com/2011/09/lync-30-second-tip-of-day-4-running.html 5-using terminal services/TS Remote Web App. (partially supported, no media) 6-write your own dual login using the sdk?: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh378585.aspx 7-This a creative (crazy) method: http://www.remkoweijnen.nl/blog/2012/03/07/running-multiple-instances-of-lync-howto/ (NOT Supported! and no idea if it still works)
