SINGAPORE, 24 SEPTEMBER 2010 - Singapore Airlines has signed an agreement with IBM to empower the airline's geographically distributed workforce to collaborate and communicate more effectively, said the tech company on Thursday (23 September).
The airlines is retaining IBM Lotus Software as the company's messaging platform but it will be upgrading to the latest version of Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 by the end of 2010, and will further enhance its collaboration, knowledge management and mobility using the Lotus Collaboration platform powered by IBM Lotus Quickr, Lotus Connections, Lotus Sametime, Lotus Notes Traveler and Lotus Mobile Connect.
Enterprise collaboration and communications is critical for a company whose employees are as dispersed as Singapore Airlines, said Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president, messaging and collaboration, IBM Lotus Software. The use of social software and collaboration solutions can significantly impact the productivity and knowledge sharing across an organisation.
IBM said its Lotus Notes collaboration software is available for the full spectrum of proliferating mobile and Web-connected devices as well as in a cloud-based version.
