Need to integrate microsoft lync with salesforce using CTI


I need to integrate microsoft lync with salesforce using CTI so that user can make call to their contacts from the salesforce system.
I downloaded the CTI components available. Everything is showing perfectly. I can make test calls. Now I need to integrate the system with microsoft lync so that whenever call will be made from salesforce system then it will call through lync.
Are there any open APIs (free) for lync available? is there any alternate solution?

There is a difference between "open" and "free". There are several "open" API/ 3rd party SDK that you can use such as

* Twilio (https://www.twilio.com/docs/api/rest) - There's a Salesforce library (https://www.twilio.com/docs/salesforce/install) as well.
* Lync SDK (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj933180(v=office.15).aspx)
* Plivo (https://www.plivo.com/docs/api/)

None of these are 'free' though.

Hello, All!

Tenfold is a CTI that can integrate Salesforce with Microsoft Lync (and other phone systems). It can capture 100% of your customer or prospect interactions as one of its key features is automatic call logging.

Besides that, Tenfold's features include click-to-call that eliminates useless clicks and misdialing of numbers, a screen pop (caller ID) that shows relevant customer information, and a call analytics dashboard that you can maximize for gamification of call activities.
