As an organisation, you may be already using Lync and Skype for Business as your enterprise ready UC chat platform. The trouble with this is that not all functionality, notably group chat, is leveraged to mobile devices.
MindLink, a highly secure messaging and enterprise collaboration platform, has today announced its integration with Microsoft's Skype for Business platform. This will enable users of Skype for Business, to access Messaging & Chat channels (also called Persistent Chat) across their Mobile devices (including MDM support) as well as Mac & Linux. The newest announcement complements MindLink's already existing integration with the Microsoft Lync UC platform.
MindLink, provider of a highly secure, rich messaging and collaboration platform for enterprises, today announced the availability of MindLink for Good, combining the MindLink enterprise chat app with secure container technology by Good Technology™, a leader in secure mobility. The Good-secured app enables MindLink to offer highly secure mobile collaboration communications to Good Technology customers using Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business.

Earlier this month, Facebook revealed that it is working on a spin-off product focused on workplace communications, which will enable users to keep professional contacts separate from the personal details they share with friends.
Unleashing the developer in everyone
Lync 2013 ships with a Web API called UCWA, the problem is it’s almost as complex to use as the more advanced .Net SDK, and is a significant barrier to developers unfamiliar with Lync. Furthermore it isn’t designed with control in mind, so once you connect you’re free to do whatever you like with no restriction on message rates or monitoring.
Getting Everything You Need To Make Better Decisions
Making decisions is hard. Making the right decisions without all the right information is harder. To make effective choices you need everything that matters in front of you, or at the very least you have to remember everything in context.
Las Vegas! The place where dreams come true – well, admittedly when it comes to the biggest gathering of Lync users, experts & partners worldwide, this certainly isn’t far from the truth.
Here we were again this year, with a bigger presence and our own booth, making contacts and showcasing our newest mobile & collaborations apps.
