Immediate productivity from new Sametime users

One of the interesting things about releasing a product - any product - into the wild is watching customers use it in innovative ways.

Instant Buddy List Administrator was originally intended to help Sametime admins maintain centralized control over the accuracy and integrity of an organization's buddy lists. But then a major defense agency surprised us by fronting Buddy List Administrator with a web-based questionnaire, the answers to which would automatically provision each new user with a custom buddy list relevant to their role and mission.

Pretty cool, yes?

Each user is productive from the first minute they're activated in Sametime. And untold hours of administrative overhead has been eliminated - a key consideration when you're rolling out Sametime to 100,000 users.

Instant Referral Rewards Program

Calling all Friends of Instant Technologies! Do you miss an Instant product that you used in a previous place of employment? Or do you know someone who could benefit from an Instant product that you’re currently using?

If so, we want to thank you for recommending us.

From now through end of year, we will reward you with a $200 Best Buy certificate for every referral that results in a purchase of one of our products. All you have to do is contact us to register your referrals; our sales team will take care of the rest.

Note: We respect corporate policies that prohibit employees from receiving vendor incentives. If your company has such a policy, we will pass your referral reward along to your employer in the form of a $200 price deduction.

Thank you for your loyalty and support!
