Formicary Launches World’s First Mobile Client For Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Group Chat

March 10, 2010

LONDON, March 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ –

– Formicary Mobile Chat Allows Users to Share and Access Information in a
Timely and Efficient Manner While on the Move

Formicary, provider of premier Systems Integration and software
solutions, today announces the launch of the world’s first secure real-time
enterprise mobile client designed to specifically extend and complement the
powerful features of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Group
Chat. Formicary Mobile Chat allows users to remain fully connected with their
teams using Office Communications Server Group Chat to share and access
information in a timely and efficient manner, reducing phone and email usage
and their associated costs while on the move.

“Informal knowledge discussions are the fabric of every business,” says

Gavin Adam, strategic Unified Communications consultant, Formicary. “But
information has a limited time value. Receiving updates after everyone else
makes the news old and essentially worthless. Additionally, in today’s
regulatory environment where audit trails are becoming increasingly
obligatory, capturing such communication chains can be difficult. Formicary
Mobile Chat captures, formalises and shares information, ensuring that teams
are always connected and compliant when on the move.”

Formicary Mobile Chat provides a consistent end user experience to
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Group Chat for a range of
mobile devices including Blackberry, with additional mobile platforms soon to
be announced. Instead of being restricted to generic operational settings,
Mobile Chat can be customised to replicate an organisation’s existing Group
Chat environment which means that users are communicating via an interface
which they are already familiar with.

Mobile Chat releases the information sharing, topic-based, multi-party
discussions associated with the Office Communications Server desktop and
applies them to the mobile environment – ensuring inclusive, secure
communication at all times. Users can set their presence to show availability
and view a list of chat rooms and active discussions to participate in.
Information in the form of text, web-links or file attachments can be shared,
while message history allows users to read previous chat messages.

“Microsoft is pleased to see Formicary’s continued efforts to support use
of Group Chat in Office Communications Server 2007 R2,” said Yancey Smith,
director of Unified Communications product management at Microsoft Corp.
“Team conversations are a vital part of information sharing in any business
and Formicary is making it possible to extend the conversation to workers,
even while on the go.”

environment, please contact info@formicary.net for further information and
