SiteScape announced that it has signed an agreement to purchase Imidio. The company also announced Zon, a unified instant collaboration product developed by Imidio, which unifies instant messaging, teleconferencing, web conferencing, chat and presence into a unique instant collaboration solution. Zon provides a platform for real-time collaboration for groups of employees to communicate wherever they are, instantly. It integrates presence – determining who is at their desk, on the phone, or in a meeting – with web conferencing and instant messaging. Zon enables impromptu meetings by knowing virtual participant availability and launching meetings instantly without the lengthy set-up and coordination often associated with on-line collaboration. Zon is available immediately as a stand-alone product, and will be available in early 2005 as an add-on feature of SiteScape Forum. Pricing will be disclosed upon request and announced shortly. www.sitescape.com
