IMA is regarded as one of the major players in the burgeoning corporate messaging market. After the success of its "killer application" the Internet Exchange Gateway for Lotus Notes and Cc:Mail for a decade, IMA is positioning its Internet Exchange Messaging Server as a fully-featured messaging solution interoperable in both Windows and Linux environments. The Internet Exchange Messaging Server 6, which includes Calendaring / Scheduling functions and migration tools from Windows-based MS Exchange, is due for release early February with much anticipation from the European market.
Paul Kaufman, 45, has been appointed to head up the new operation and has had many years experience in the messaging and communications field, working with such companies as 3COM and LANSource Technologies as well as a sales and marketing background in channel distribution. He is tasked with building the local supply chain through resellers and distribution and to set up full local support and product marketing activities.
Tim Kehres, IMA president said "We have seen a rising demand for our products throughout the European region and intend to consolidate our position by taking this important step. With Paul's in-depth knowledge and background of this valuable market, we believe he is ideally placed to successfully build our European presence"
