WES 2008: WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS to be Featured at WES
WebMessenger, a leader in enterprise mobile communications, today announced the commercial availability of WebMessenger Mobile™ for Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS). The first-to-market solution enables enterprises to extend their investments in the popular Microsoft unified communications platform out to BlackBerry mobile devices. WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS will be on-display at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium in Orlando, Florida, May 13 – 15.
“With today’s announcement WebMessenger is seeking to capitalize on two very fast-moving and high-growth industry trends,” said Joe Naylor, WebMessenger President. “First, adoption of Microsoft OCS in the enterprise is increasing rapidly. Second, Research in Motion continues to saturate the market with BlackBerry devices. At the intersection of these trends is the critical need enterprises have to mobilize Microsoft OCS out to BlackBerry units. WebMessenger currently is the only vendor delivering a solution that fills this gap. We expect demand for WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS to be extraordinarily high in the coming months, as enterprise adoption of Microsoft OCS and BlackBerrys continue to rise.”
“Mobility is a key driver and growth area in the multi-billion dollar unified communications market,” said Vanessa Alvarez, an analyst in Yankee Group's Enterprise Research group. “Enterprises that have invested heavily in desktop-based unified collaboration platforms are looking to extend those benefits out to an increasingly mobile workforce. As collaboration and the mobile device market proliferate within the Anywhere Enterprise, the spoils will go to vendors offering flexible and easy to deploy solutions that connect these technologies. We see WebMessenger as a potentially disruptive player in this emerging and valuable market.”
Microsoft OCS manages all real-time (synchronous) communications including instant messaging, VoIP, audio and video conferencing. It works with existing tele-communications systems, so business can deploy advanced VoIP and conferencing without tearing out their legacy phone networks. Microsoft OCS also powers presence, a key benefit of Microsoft unified communications that unites all the contact information stored in Active Directory with the ways people communicate. With presence, business professionals can see at-a-glance if someone is available and contact them with a click.
WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS provides the mobile unified communications tools that drive employee productivity, reduce operational expenses and greatly increase workplace appeal to tech-savvy, younger recruits. Each of these aspects contributes significant operational and competitive advantages to companies that deploy and encourage the use of Microsoft OCS and BlackBerrys throughout their organizations. WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS enables IT departments to maximize their return on investment in Microsoft OCS by extending these capabilities out to their BlackBerry user populations.
WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS is deployed as an on-premise enterprise solution and can be used by itself or in conjunction with other WebMessenger Mobile solutions to federate leading IM networks, connect with enterprise voice IP PBX platforms, extend persistent group chat solutions, or leverage existing auditing and compliance tracking solutions. Pricing for WebMessenger Mobile for Microsoft OCS starts at $72 per seat. For additional information on enterprise solutions and pricing, email email@example.com.
