Do you need centralized control over Sametime buddy lists to help with adding, removing and renaming people?  

Would you like a tool to pre-populate Sametime buddy lists during the Sametime deployment?

Instant Buddy List Administrator is a server-side management console to add, modify, delete, and automatically configure the buddy lists for members of your Sametime environment.  Buddy List Administrator supports integration with AdminP and supports standards for rename and delete functions to keep systems in sync.

Instant Buddy List Administrator solves the issues related to the management and updating of Sametime buddy lists:

Server-side Management Console: Centralized control of groups and users. Instant, zero-touch deployment of additions, deletions, and changes. Read how a major defense organization is using Buddy List Administrator to pre-configure more than 10,000 Lotus Sametime buddy lists as part of their deployment.

Real-time, Live Updates: Server does not need to be stopped or rebooted. Users can be online and active. Automatically roll back to the previous configuration if a mistake is made - stress-free updates! 

Integrated with AdminP: Buddy List Administrator will immediately respond to and resolve Lotus Domino and Lotus Sametime administrative requests submitted into AdminP.

Flexible Configuration: Manage buddy lists straight from Notes. Also works natively with vpuserinfo.nsf. Quickly re-maps users from Domino to LDAP or AD if you switch directories.

Granular Update Control: Add/delete multiple buddies and bots. Centrally create private and public groups. Change a buddy's data once and have it automatically propagate across all group memberships.  Updates may write directly to vpuserinfo.nsf if the user is offline, or will take place using the server based storage system if the user is online.  The indexing database provides a searchable, and human readable, view of all Sametime buddy lists in the organization.

Leverages IBM Instant Messaging/Sametime: Works with Sametime 3.0 and later - including Sametime 7.5x, Sametime 8.0, and Sametime 9.

Do you need to migrate Sametime buddy lists to Microsoft Lync/Skype for Business?  Instant Buddy List Migrator can help.
