LONDON, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

MindLink's Business Critical Collaboration Platform Enhances Microsoft Lync® with Enterprise Collaboration Capabilities; Enables Employees to Work Together Quickly, Efficiently and Securely on Critical Business Issues

Formicary Collaboration Group (http://www.fcg.im), announced today the company will be showcasing its new Microsoft Lync 2013 release of MindLink at the Lync Conference 2013 in San Diego, February 19-21 (Booth K8) and sponsoring the conference's keynote presentation. Built exclusively on Lync, MindLink is a business critical collaboration platform that enables employees to quickly and securely connect, collaborate and exchange information online about business critical issues that positively impact business results such as converting new sales opportunities, controlling costs, meeting critical goals or solving unexpected business challenges.

"We're excited to be a sponsor of the first Lync Conference later this month and to have the opportunity to launch MindLink for Lync 2013 to the Lync community," said Howard Travers, co-founder and director, Formicary Collaboration Group (FCG).  "For the first time, one of Lync's best kept secrets, persistent chat, moves center stage with Lync 2013.  Working in conjunction with MindLink, Lync-customers now have a more business critical collaboration alternative to the current generation of enterprise social-oriented solutions."  

"We're excited about the collaboration scenarios that are enabled by Persistent Chat in Lync 2013." said Tim Armstrong Senior Partner Marketing Manager for Lync. "MindLink adds powerful capability to our platform and gives our enterprise customers the ability to bring line of business data directly into contextual chat in a way that can support mobility and compliance."

MindLink - More Business, Less Social
The team behind MindLink have years of experience in delivering Business Critical Collaboration solutions to businesses large and small around the world.  MindLink was built from the ground up to be an enterprise platform for business critical collaboration and supports the deployment and adoption of Lync through use cases that drive measurable business returns. MindLink helps improve business productivity, driving adoption and repeated use across the entire enterprise, while laying the groundwork for enterprise-wide voice deployments. 

MindLink's anytime, anywhere access and its seamless integration into a company's existing technology investments, including key components of the Microsoft portfolio - SharePoint, CRM and Outlook - and line of business data, notifications and news, provide users with a compelling and ubiquitous experience on desktop, web and mobile devices.  

With MindLink, employees can effortlessly connect and rapidly collaborate with one another to share challenges, seek expert advice and answers, and make critical business decisions quickly. MindLink also records all activity, preserving knowledge and fulfilling compliance needs.  

Value-add for Partners
MindLink enables Lync service providers and system integrators to enhance the value they offer to existing Lync customers, whilst providing additional services and support revenues over the long-term. MindLink's uptake in business critical scenarios - coupled with its ability to be deployed on any device, in any location and on every platform - promotes recurring revenue opportunities for our partners. And because MindLink can be extended to integrate with other applications using open APIs, partners can provide ongoing support covering a whole host of customer needs.
