Instant Messaging for Business

By Monte Enbysk
Reprinted with permission from the Microsoft Small Business

Blame it on instant messaging. Here’s the scene: A couple dozen
professionals at a New York advertising agency quietly type away
at computer screens congregated near each other, in an open room
devoid of office walls and tall partitions.

Quietly is the key word here. An occasional laugh or chuckle
punctuates the silence. But no one is talking. Why? They are
communicating with one another almost exclusively through
instant messaging (IM).

Technology can
go a long way in helping your business stay competitive,
meet customer expectations and improve operational
efficiencies. But most small businesses simply don’t
have the resources to evaluate technologies and aren’t
sure where to find the right technology partner. That’s
where a value-added reseller can help.

A VAR enhances
an existing product, such as hardware, with additional
features, such as software, and then sells it as an
integrated package often tailored for specific
industries. VARs add further value to the products they
sell through consultation and design, training,
implementation, and ongoing service and support.

The right VAR
can serve as a small business’s IT advisor and help it
deploy the same technologies that larger companies use,
such as CRM software and IP communications. You can then
use those tools to enhance customer experience–a key
step in growing customer loyalty and the bottom line.
