Offers new cloud service package combining email and social networking
IBM is adding new tools and services, language support and pricing to its LotusLive cloud services, including integrated business products and services from UPS, Skype, salesforce.com and Silanis.
IBM said that it will also offer a new bundle of secure, enterprise-grade cloud email and social networking for only $7 USD per user, per month. Combining the capabilities of LotusLive iNotes and LotusLive Connections, the bundle provides email, file store and share, activity management, instant messaging and social networking services.
The company is integrating UPS shipping and visibility functionality within LotusLive. Expected to be available later this year, the integration is designed to simplify and speed important shipping-related tasks, enabling users to manage these details directly from their LotusLive dashboard.
IBM also launched LotusLive integrations with Skype, salesforce.com and Silanis. LotusLive Engage for Salesforce CRM integration will allow customers to take advantage of LotusLive meetings, files and activities to collaborate with other from within Salesforce CRM.
The Silanis e-SignLive e-signature services enable users from multiple organisations to participate in electronic signing process, while the Skype enables them to make voice calls, send instant messages and share files with other Skype users.
Sean Poulley, vice president for cloud collaboration at IBM, said: In its first year, IBM LotusLive has won the trust of people from businesses of all sizes who want to work safely with people outside and inside their company. Now IBM is weaving essential business services such as shipping, contract signing, internet calling and CRM into the very fabric of LotusLive allowing people to get their work done faster.
