Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Outlook, allows Sametime customers that have deployed Microsoft Outlook, to combine the real-time, just in time awareness of Lotus Sametime within the highly popular Microsoft Outlook e-mail client. Sametime Buddy enables users to dynamically see the online status of people within their Outlook in-box, contacts and calendar appointments.
"We realized early on that with the huge popularity of Lotus Sametime and Microsoft Office, there were great benefits to be gained from using the two together" said Peyton McManus, CEO of Invitrix, "Our software combines two great platforms to help people work faster, communicate easier, and save both time and money."
"Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Outlook clearly demonstrates how Lotus Sametime can be integrated into other applications and provides more than simple instant messaging." said Jeremy Dies, IBM Brand Manager for Lotus Sametime.
Instant messaging within the enterprise provides unique opportunities to innovate and add significant value. "Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Outlook" is the first in a number of tools that will enhance and merge the benefits of Microsoft Office and Lotus Sametime being delivered by Invitrix, upcoming products will include "Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Word" and "Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Excel".
"Sametime Buddy for Microsoft Outlook" has already been receiving great praise from early Beta testers, Bruce Elgort, Manager - Strategic Business Operations, SHARP Microelectronics of the Americas said "Invitrix's technology allows us to provide seamless awareness within both our Microsoft and Lotus collaborative environments.
