Hosted Corporate Instant Messaging Services

Akeni Instant Messenger is a hosted service that allows companies to have their own corporate IM service.

The application is hosted on Akeni's own server, with us providing the administration and support for it. All you need to do is to download and install a small, easy to use client side software. You can optionally skip the installation of the software all together by using a web based interface through your browser.

Features List

  • Encryption: All communication, including file transfer, is done through an 128-bit encrypted channel to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the data.
  • Authentication: Access to the system are done using a zero-knowledge protocol that authentificates both the server and the client.
  • Increased Productivity: By design, the system does not allow users to talk to people outside of the system. This will decrease the amount of time people spend talking to outsiders on non-work related issues using public IM systems.
  • Feature Rich: Real-time chat, private text conferencing sessions, online presence management, file transfer, emergency alerts/notifications, message logs, powerful rich-text editor, typing indicator.
  • Customization: Almost all aspect of the program can be changed and tailor to suit your work habits. For example, all the toolbars are fully customizable to maximize your productivity.
  • Customizable Exit Message: Create your own informative away and exit (offline) status messages.
  • Tabbed Window: For users that have many simultaneous conversations and don't want dozens of chat windows open. Akeni provides an option to place all the chat and conference sessions into one tabbed window.

Advanced Features

  • Message Auditing: All messages can be logged by the server for auditing purposes.
  • Message Logging: All activities are logged to HTML files so that they can be browsed later using your favorite browser.
  • Public Forums: This is a public chat room where people can join and leave at any time and have discussion with one another. The content of the forum is permanent and will be displayed whenever one joins the forum. The Administrator can also create "members only" forums.
  • User Trust Level: The administrator can create "untrusted" accounts that can be contacted but can not contact another untrusted user. For example, this can be used to setup student accounts so that teachers can talk to students and students to teachers, but students can not chat with each other.
  • Secured Defaults: Unlike public IM systems, our system is designed from the ground up with security in mind. There are no "unsafe" ways to run the program. Only people on the contact list can send/receive messages, thus eliminating all spams.
  • Drag & Drop Support: Most operations are available via drag and drop. Drag a file from your desktop and drop it on top of the recipient's name to start a file transfer. Drag the names of co-workers and drop them in a conference window to invite them to a conference, etc.
  • Cross Platform: Both the server and the client software are available for Microsoft Windows and Linux. All version of the software inter-operates seamlessly, making the Pro Edition a good solution for heterogeneous computer environments.
