Connect your enterprise email and Microsoft Lync environments with Instant’s Email-2-IM Gateway

The @IM - Email-2-IM Gateway for Microsoft Lync improves enterprise email and instant messaging communication and collaboration. 

Businesses consider email and IM as their two most dominant forms of communication and the Email-2-IM Gateway cuts through the clutter and bridges your enterprise email and Microsoft Lync environments.    

The Email-2-IM Gateway merges enterprise email and Microsoft Lync instant messaging with the simple @IM sub-domain.  The Email-2-IM Gateway provides the ability to receive emails using Instant’s gateway server, and dispatch Lync IM messages to individuals, distribution lists, and Lync 2010/2013 group chat rooms.  The application provides a solution to enable existing email notification systems to dispatch messages to Microsoft Lync IM users and Microsoft Lync Group Chat rooms.

“The @IM Gateway is an exciting product launch.  We are connecting email and IM at the server level in order to immediately add value to existing enterprise email and IM deployments”, commented Peyton McManus, President of Instant Technologies.  “Our Portsmouth, NH team has developed a drop in application that uses your existing email client, or email notification system, to send Microsoft Lync IM messages and post content to group chat rooms without added effort.”

The Email-2-IM Gateway is a simple drop in application that merges email and Lync environments.  Your existing automated email systems can now send IM’s and post information to chat rooms – including file attachments.  By using your existing email client and adding the @IM sub-domain you can now notify more individuals and groups without added effort and with advanced communications tools.
