Instant Technologies Corporation of Beverly, Mass., (“Instant”) today announced the licensing of its Instant TeamMessengertm instant messaging product to Sandia National Laboratories, a developer of science-based technologies that support our national security. Instant TeamMessenger is the industry’s first integration product to seamlessly combine IBM Lotus Sametime corporate instant messaging technology into the Microsoft Outlook e-mail platform. IBM Lotus Sametime is the market leader in corporate instant messaging, with 10 million subscribers, while Microsoft Outlook is one of the world’s leading e-mail programs, with 65 million users.

"We chose to purchase TeamMessenger because it supports almost direct inclusion of Lotus Sametime Instant Messaging into the MS Outlook mail client. It does it in a way that is unobtrusive and quite easy to install at the desktop, while preserving Sametime's features such as encrypted messages. It makes Sametime feel like part of MS Outlook" says Pete Asprey of the Information Systems & Services group at Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA. Asprey said, "Sandia has been using Sametime for over a year and recently made it more widely availability to all staff who choose to use it. TeamMessenger provides an important bridge between the two communications tools."

“We are thrilled to have Sandia National Laboratories as a paying customer. Given the importance of their charter to the country, we knew their purchasing guidelines would be very stringent. In the end, Instant TeamMessenger was selected because it is simple to use and install, secure and truly allows them to effortlessly leverage the enormously rich technologies of Microsoft and IBM, thereby adding much needed IM technologies in a way that protect their current IT investment,” said Tim Browne, Chief Executive Officer at Instant Technologies Corporation.
