What is Communicator?
Connect From Anywhere Securely
Communicator is instant messaging for business; customizable, secure and scalable.
Communicator runs on top of a new infrastructure called EBS (Enterprise Business Services). Users can connect via a WAN or the Internet through just one TCP port. Communicator supports a number of industry standard encryption methods such as AES.
Active Directory Integration
EBS is a platform conceived to accommodate tens of thousands of users. Because of this design, there is virtually no limit on how many users can interact via Communicator.
Optional integration with Microsoft’s Active Directory allows users to use their standard Windows username and password to log into Communicator. Active Directory updates are reflected in IMiN within minutes.
EBS can “push” new releases of applications, such as Communicator, out to the users’ desks. This eliminates the need to visit each desk in order to roll out a new version.
Send and Receive Email, SMS and Pager Messages
Communicator allows users to define up to 24 “fast key” responses so that responses can be sent quickly and with minimal interruption.
Users can not only send messages to one another using Communicator, they can also send and receive Email, SMS and Pager messages.
Centralized History Storage
All messages sent or received are recorded on the server and are accessible to you from any location.
All IMiN conversations are encrypted, recorded, and searchable at a later date, thus providing compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
By looking in the tree you can see if a user is currently online and actively working on their computer.
: Communicator is offline.
: Communicator is online.
: Communicator is in AutoReply mode.
: Communicator is online, but the user has not typed or moved their mouse for a user defined extended period of time (15 minutes by default).
IMiN can be configured to automatically reply to any communications received with a preconfigured message.
Communicator can be set to notify you when any user you select comes back online.
Communicator incorporates a number of features so that users, or their administrators, can customize the behavior of the user interface. All preferences are stored on the server so that regardless of where a user logs on they utilize the same preferences.
Zones / Groups
Pick Your Skin
Users are organized by “zones” and “groups”. Users can also identify their “favorites” in order to simplify access to users.
The user interface for Communicator is entirely skin based. You can pick a colorful skin such as Cool Blue or a more practical skin which shows all 24 fast key buttons.
Communicator messages support different colors, clickable web URLs and Email addresses as well as bold, italics and underlined fonts. Right click the message edit control and use the context menu to change your messages characteristics.
