SKyCOM Unified Communications Application Adds VoIP Capability for Improved
Productivity, Increased Convenience, and Lower Communications Costs 
LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--
SKyPRO AG announces the SKyCOM Unified Communications application that
integrates with Novell GroupWise to provide Voice over IP services for voice and
messaging communications. SKyCOM delivers improved user productivity and
convenience, while lowering communications costs for companies. 

SKyCOM increases user productivity by using the PC as the single interface for
all communications. GroupWise integration enables the user to track all
communications and use GroupWise as a simple CRM tool. 

SKyPRO will work with existing VoIP server hardware from vendors such as Cisco
or equally well with the Asterisk Open Source telephony server. Using the
Asterisk telephony server in combination with SKyCOM, a company can avoid large
investments for an upgrade to an IP-PBX or expensive IP Phones. 

"In today`s challenging economic climate, companies all over the world need to
cut costs and improve user productivity to stay competitive. SKyCOM enables all
GroupWise users to achieve these goals without causing disruptions," said Horst
Fuhrmann, President of SKyPRO. 

"Companies can no longer survive on the market without services such as e-mail
or VoIP, like the SKyPRO client, which have established themselves as the new
methods of communications," said Frank Martin, CFO of GlobeTac, based in Zug,
Switzerland. "In addition to using SKyCOM internally, we will be proposing this
product to our consulting clients, who include multinational companies and
organizations with hundreds of locations all over the world." 

According to John Lincoln, Director of IT at almabani General Contractors,
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, "SKyCOM complements the existing GroupWise platform
ideally. SKyCOM extends GroupWise to provide VoIP phone calls directly from your
Mailbox. SKyCOM can make phone calls from your PC with up to 7 participants and
the access to your existing GroupWise contact data as well as an abundance of
additional features that enhances user productivity. SKyCOM will definitely
improve our communications between our head office and job sites all over the
Middle East." 

Pricing starts at $95. 

SKyCOM is available in English and German versions.
