Star adds new on-demand services in WorkLife Productivity Suite

No on-premise hardware required, users to leverage online meeting tools

By CBR Staff Writer

Star, a provider of on-demand computing and communication services to UK businesses, has introduced new managed services for IM (instant messaging) and Conference as key part of WorkLife Productivity Suite, to enable customers access collaboration tools.

The new services are fully managed and require no on-premise hardware, while enable users to leverage instant messaging and online meeting tools.

Employees will now be able to organise impromptu or scheduled online meetings with colleagues, customers, suppliers or prospects from their Microsoft Outlook application, thereby saving time and travel costs, the company said.

Microsoft Communications Sector Business Channel director Andrew Lund said said with WorkLife, Star is in a unique position to provide a suite of on-demand communications services that will be game changing for UK businesses.

Star director of Convergence and Network Strategy Hugo Harber said WorkLife IM is the perfect way for an organisation to take back control away from consumer IM applications.

"Now, with WorkLife you can give users the benefits of quick real-time communications in a secure, cost and bandwidth efficient manner," Harber said.
