AOL on Wednesday released a public beta of AIM Pro, the company’s instant messaging client tailored for businesses. The software is based upon the AIM Triton platform and integrates online meetings and live demonstrations with desktop sharing using technology from WebEx.
AIM Pro has a streamlined interface that’s more appropriate for corporate environments. AIM Pro delivers added security over Triton with message encryption, along with the voice and video capabilities offered by the WebEx MediaTone Network. The software will connect with AOL AIM, ICQ and Apple iChat users, as well as business-oriented IM clients through the AIM Clearinghouse service.
The new client also integrates with Outlook to enable users to see their instant messages, calendar and e-mails in one place.
