AOL has launched a couple of business focused messaging services with WebEx. Quite why we're not so sure!? Hey, at least it should help build their SME base.
In a partnership with Web-conferencing leader WebEx, AOL is launching the tentatively named AIM Pro. One AIM Pro package will target small businesses and the self-employed, while another is intended to appeal to larger companies. Both will differ from the free AIM service by offering a customized interface, additional security, voice, video and Web collaboration capabilities.
Messaging is becoming a killer application for most portals. Expect even more innovation through the year.
