Default Enterprise chat software with BB app

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for a chat program to be used in a office environment, hopefully something that supports Active Directory. This solution needs to have a BB application as well.

Any suggestions?

Spark is great with OpenFire but unfortunately there is no BB app.

Live Communications server was replaced by Office Communicator 2007, which works very nicely with the BB. However, it requires a significant investment in server and web infrastructure to make it work. It's great.

BlackBerry Messenger remains one of the best options for workplace chats.

OCS is wonderful. One of the best BB applications I've used. And the integration with Outlook gives presence some real power.

And we put in our Avaya Unified Communications integration server today. Too bad it is only a small pilot. Since I paid for it, well, I GET IT.
