Gateshead, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 08, 2007 -- A UK software development company is set to revolutionise business communications with the launch of an affordable 'Business Class' Instant Messaging (IM) service.
Rozmic Wireless has developed Rozmic Messenger having identified the need for organisations in both the private and public sectors to support collaborative business processes securely.
Research indicated that IM is the best way to accelerate new forms of collaboration and communication among distributed workforces. The system increases productivity as e-mail inboxes swell with spam. Large and remotely distributed teams require continuous real-time communication, but public access IM systems present a security risk which is unacceptable in business.
Ross Cooney, Managing Director with Rozmic Wireless says; "We felt that the market cried out for affordable business class IM services. IM is the primary communication tool for social networks, now it has been given high security coupled with an easy interface and taken into the enterprise."
Robin Mackie, Chairman of Rozmic says:
"Research has shown that workers want immediate answers, and waiting for the turnaround on a typical email often feels excruciatingly long. Public access IM can help speed this process up but it comes with several problems, including security, viruses and inappropriate usage."
In addition to secure communications Rozmic Messenger allows users to see who is online, and exchange messages with them. Files can be transferred more quickly and securely than via email and the system operates from any PC, laptop, hand-held device and some mobile phones. Rozmic Firewall protects IM from malware, hackers and viruses.
Sean Sollom , Lead developer at Rozmic says;
"Corporations are starting to see the benefits of IM through enhanced customer relations and substantial cost-savings. Given IM's advantages I can see it becoming a major part of the enterprise communications suite. In the same way email gained ascendancy over fax a decade ago, so we believe it is only a matter of time until IM gains ascendancy over email".
Rozmic Wireless Ltd, a software development company specialising in data transfer and mobile communications was setup by Ross Cooney and Robin Mackie with the help of Nstar Finance, enterprise agency Entrust and a number of private business angels. The company has released two products and opened offices in Gateshead and Toronto.
