Formicary upgrades product suite to support next generation unified communications offering from Microsoft Corp.

“Formicary’s solutions on Lync Group Chat provide additional ways for customers to access their group chat environment,” said Yancey Smith, director of product management, Microsoft Lync.

Formicary, a software and system integration provider and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, has upgraded its suite of intelligent collaboration solutions to make them fully compatible with Microsoft Lync 2010, the next generation of Microsoft Corp.’s unified communications (UC) software. The upgrade means that Microsoft Lync users can benefit from Formicary’s enterprise solutions which extend the value of the Group Chat environment by providing alternative methods of communication through mobile or web based access.

Lync ushers in a new connected experience transforming communication into an interaction that is more collaborative, engaging and accessible from anywhere.

“Lync will revolutionise the enterprise communications landscape,” says Gavin Adam, UC Evangelist, Formicary. “As Lync’s focus is on software, not hardware, it not only reduces telecommunications infrastructure costs, but brings a wealth of choice in how users – who are already using Microsoft technology on a daily basis - communicate. The ease at which Lync can be developed makes it easier to incorporate business logic which reflects the needs of individual organisations into Group Chat applications. By making solutions more relevant and easier to use, organisations will see a greater return on investment and reap maximum benefits such improved collaborative working and more streamlined communication.”

Formicary products which are Lync compatible include:

WebChat: a web access client for Group Chat & IM, which includes the ability to integrate Persistent Group Chat within Microsoft SharePoint sites

Mobile Chat: a mobile access client for Group Chat & IM on BlackBerry

ChatSeer Exporter: provides compliance in the Group Chat and web conferencing environment

“Formicary’s solutions on Lync Group Chat provide additional ways for customers to access their group chat environment,” said Yancey Smith, director of product management, Microsoft Lync. “Microsoft is pleased to be working with Formicary to help customers move their communications into the future with Lync.”
