Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2016
Sameroom, the enterprise chat integration tool, today announced its integration with Skype for Business. Sameroom’s interoperability solution lets users sync Skype for Business conversations with HipChat, Slack, and many other services—even Facebook Messenger or Twitter DMs.
Enterprise chat software is enabling startups and groups within large companies to eliminate email, streamline communication, and facilitate remote working environments. However, cross-team and cross-company collaboration is still extremely difficult—people are forced to invite each other into their respective chat solutions, requiring tedious switching between teams, tabs, and applications—frequently resulting in a fallback to email. This problem is particularly vexing for agencies, CIOs, CSOs, IT Managers, and others who need efficient communication across multiple concurrent projects and platforms.
Sameroom is built by Andrei Soroker and Peter Hizalev, who have been working in the space for the past 15 years. They previously developed Kato.im—an enterprise chat platform. While working with customers on deploying Kato as a solution, they recognized the magnitude of fragmentation in the space, and that they were contributing to the problem by suggesting companies adopt yet another silo. They launched Sameroom in March 2015, with real-time interoperability to the most popular enterprise chat products on the market.
Since Sameroom launched, the number of people seeking Skype for Business integrations has increased significantly. Many notice that Skype for Business is mandated by IT and management, but the building blocks for instrumenting basic chat-based workflows are simply not there: no persistent rooms, no API, no integrations, no usable mobile apps.
Given this state of affairs, many Skype for Business users wish to connect their conversations to the enterprise chat application they use for daily workflow and collaboration within smaller workgroups. With Sameroom, Skype for Business users can benefit from familiar features and functionality in the chat application they primarily use for workflow while still conforming to corporate IT mandates.
About Sameroom: Sameroom provides real-time interoperability gateways available for Campfire, Facebook Messenger, Fleep, Flowdock, Gitter, Google Hangouts, HipChat, Intercom, IRC, Salesforce Chatter, Skype, Slack, Telegram, and Twitter. Sameroom can work with any other chat platform, given an API.
