LINK Development to Showcase Collaboration Solutions at Gitex 2010Thursday, Oct 14, 2010
LINK Development, the foremost IT solutions provider in the region, is presenting the latest turnkey collaboration solutions for businesses during this year’s Gitex held in Dubai from the 17 to 21 October, aiming at enhancing corporate effectiveness by increasing employees’ productivity and communication while reducing cost of ownership and processing time.
As Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, LINK Development will be showcasing its latest collaboration solutions, business-ready intranet portal, Tempo, as well as the newest Unified Communications solutions based on Microsoft Lync Server 2010, at the Microsoft stand in Hall 7. Both solutions aim to promote a smarter work environment by streamlining internal shared processes, promoting corporate communication, and increasing collaboration. Most importantly, they guarantee higher return on investment (ROI) due to their faster and direct benefits allowing staff to work smarter.
LINK Development is the only Microsoft partner to showcase the next generation of Unified Communications server, Microsoft Lync Server 2010. This new solution streamlines communications by combining e-mail, instant messaging, web conferencing and voice communications onto a single, easy-to-use unified interface that is consistent across PC and mobile devices.
LINK Development will also showcase another highly sought-after solution. Based on Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Tempo meets the common needs of employees at various levels, and allows access to the latest Enterprise 2.0 tools and features.
According to IDC, employees spend on average 40% of their time searching for information, while only 20% of them find what they are looking for. Furthermore, request cycles usually take weeks to complete and aren’t efficiently logged or traced causing employees to waste time on follow up. Visitors to the Microsoft stand this year will observe how Tempo allows businesses to align and share information to encourage knowledge sharing across teams. Deploying this business-ready intranet solution allows enterprises to work more efficiently, radically decreasing time and effort spent on daily work processes.
Built on LINK Development’s expertise in mobile application development across devices, Tempo is also available as a mobile application. The mobile version of Tempo enables employee mobility and engagement through easy and convenient access.
Irini Rafaat, Managing Director of LINK Development, says: “With the continuous change in the business climate and economy, it becomes increasingly crucial for enterprises to tap into the power of online collaboration for added value benefits such as increasing employee engagement and reducing the size of employee/organization gap. Our latest collaboration solution allows employees to seamlessly connect and share information anywhere and from any device,” adds Irini Rafaat.
Additionally, LINK Development is showcasing an array of IT solutions and services that will boast the company’s solid technical expertise in building cloud computing and mobility solutions. The various cloud solutions aim to maximize the usage of organizational infrastructure and minimize costs for hardware and maintenance. The solutions provide a range of features and tools to leverage corporate effectiveness and productivity for businesses of all sizes. Amongst the solutions showcased by LINK Development is bSolutions, an innovative cloud platform offering Microsoft Dynamics CRM online, and Meet Online, a solution that offers real-time and cost effective interaction with the staff across geographical locations.
