LONDON, February 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

MindLink Mobile To Be Showcased At Lync Conference 2013, February 19-21, San Diego

Formicary Collaboration Group (, announced today that it will showcase its new Microsoft Lync 2013 release of MindLink at the Lync Conference 2013 in San Diego, February 19-21 (Booth K8). MindLink enables employees to quickly and securely connect, collaborate and exchange information online about business critical issues that positively impact business results. Included in the showcase will be MindLink Mobile for BlackBerry®. Developed in close collaboration with the Microsoft Lync Product team and BlackBerry, MindLink Mobile is the only application that exposes Lync's persistent chat capabilities, in addition to the staples of instant messaging and presence, for the BlackBerry platform.

Designed for business users with a limited time for information processing and decision making, MindLink Mobile provides a premium experience allowing access to filtered, critical content including notifications and news and line of business data as MindLink seamlessly integrates Microsoft Lync with other day to day business processes such as CRM and news feeds.

"For too long, social technology has focused on the practicalities of communication rather than the transformation these applications can bring to business profitability," says Daanish Khan, head of marketing and strategy, Formicary Collaboration Group.  "Conscious that mobile users can typically only grab a couple of minutes in between meetings in which to view messages, it's vital that they focus on business critical discussions without the distraction of less time sensitive information. MindLink Mobile for BlackBerry integrates the right people with the right information at the right time, ensuring that business decisions are made more effectively."

For those organisations with a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, MindLink Mobile for iPhone is also available and can be securely managed with BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10, the enterprise mobility management solution for BlackBerry, iOS® and Android™.

"We have worked closely with Formicary Collaboration Group in its capacity as a member of the BlackBerry Partners for enterprise programme to provide valuable and strategic solutions for business customers.  These include Formicary's award-winning BlackBerry PlayBook app for Aviva Risk Management Solutions, and an app for the Royal Bank of Scotland," says Derek Peper, vice president, enterprise partnerships at BlackBerry. "MindLink Mobile for BlackBerry is a formidable tool that improves collaboration allowing teams to instantly coordinate and exchange information across the organization."

 MindLink Mobile for BlackBerry smartphones is currently available for BlackBerry OS versions 5 through 7.01, and MindLink Anywhere is available for the BlackBerry® Playbook™ tablet. FCG will shortly be announcing availability of a version for the BlackBerry 10 platform.
