Formicary solution connects Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 (R2) Group Chat with BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Formicary, a provider of systems integration (SI) and software solutions, has joined the BlackBerry® Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Alliance Program as a Select Member. The program will provide Formicary with technical, sales and marketing support from RIM. Formicary plans to extend the benefits of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Group Chat to BlackBerry® Enterprise Server customers through applications such as the recently launched Formicary Mobile Chat.

Formicary Mobile Chat is a secure real-time mobile enterprise application designed to specifically extend and complement the powerful features of Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Instant Messaging and Group Chat. Formicary Mobile Chat allows BlackBerry® smartphone users to remain fully connected with their teams using Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Group Chat to share and access information in a timely and efficient manner, thereby reducing phone usage and other costs, while on the move.

Instead of being restricted to generic operational settings, Formicary 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. Formicary Mobile Chat releases the information sharing, topic-based, multi-party discussions associated with the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 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.

Commenting, Howard Travers, business development director at Formicary says, "Joining the BlackBerry Alliance Program will provide Formicary with a new level of access to the BlackBerry ecosystem so that we can continue to develop intelligent collaborative solutions that are compatible with the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution. Formicary Mobile Chat for the BlackBerry platform provides mobile workers with a powerful and secure remote chat environment to help keep users one step ahead of their desk-bound rivals."
