Reuters links messaging system to MSN, AOL networks

21 November 2005  |  6511 views  |  0 reuters logo

Reuters has launched a new version of its hosted instant messaging application for financial markets participants that connects to the MSN Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) networks.

Users of Reuters Messaging 5.0 will be able to exchange information in a secure environment with users of the MSN Messsenger and AIM systems, unlike the messaging system offered by its rival Bloomberg which isn't interoperable with any third party messaging networks.

Reuters says its enhanced IM system will provide access to an expanded community of over 200 million people.

Furthermore, in 2006 Reuters Messaging - which is based on Microsoft Office Live Communication Server (LCS) technology - will be upgraded to enable LCS enterprise users to link seamlessly in real-time to the financial network built around Reuters Messaging.

Jeff Raikes, president at Microsoft's business division, says: "Reuters upgrade to LCS 2005 next year will give enterprises using LCS an exciting opportunity to connect to a larger global trading community federating with Reuters Messaging."
