SnappShot for SameTime


Lotus Sametime™ is the most successful corporate instant messaging (IM) tool in the world. Without a doubt, IBM has the definitive lead based on the maturity, robustness and – perhaps most critically – security of Sametime. With the growth and acceptance of corporate IM as a means of doing business, the conversations among parties over Sametime become a central part of the business process. In fact, they have reached the level of importance of email and other corporate records.

In addition, the knowledge of the workforce is often encapsulated in IM conversations, yet for some reason we let them disappear – records, knowledge, and all – the instant the Sametime session is closed. SnappShot for Sametime solves this problem, capturing IM sessions in the most secure, robust manner possible. By recording and securing IM sessions, SnappShot maintains the history your firm needs for legal and records purposes, and instantly provides you with another critical resource for mining the knowledge already present in your organization.

Co-developed by Looseleaf Software, Inc. and SNAPPS, SnappShot™ provides key benefits, making it the most secure and configurable solution for capturing Sametime sessions.
