Office 2010 and Skype for Business

We are a Windows 7/Office 2010 shop and are considering subscribing to Skype for Business. We have no desire to update to office 2013 or 2016. We are also using an Exchange 2010 Cluster.

Do you know or can you point me in the right direction on how these integrate if at all? We're looking at using the Microsoft hosted skype for business service so we don't have to host anything on site.

To complicate things we have a lot of macs on office 2011 with OS X version from 10.8.x thru 10.11.x

Any help would be appreciated.

If have office 2010(any version) with Lync 2013 then make sure you do the deployment of latest office 2010 service pack(SP2) and office 2013 Sp1. do let me know if you face any issue after following it.

You can either subscribe for Skype for Business Online Plan 1 or Plan 2 which is standalone plan.

From a deployment perspective we're not using lync now, however from  what you've said it looks like we need to install lync on the windows computers in order to use skype integration with outlook 2010?
