Mumbai: CSS, a technology operations management organization headquartered in San Jose, California, has won the Great Mind Challenge for Business 2009 Award for the most Innovative Collaboration Solution. CSS has received the award in this solution category for its 'Sametime Implementation' across the organization.

Instituted in 2009, The Great Mind Challenge for Business Award are annual awards which recognize visionary IBM India clients who have successfully implemented IBM software solutions to create exceptional business value. This award was presented at the 'IBM Software Universe,' IBM's flagship Software Group event, in Mumbai.

Nick Sharma, CEO of CSS said, "CSS Labs is helping our customers in adopting new technology platforms, with an objective of enhancing our clients' technology OPEX optimization through cost-effective and innovative solutions. This award is an outstanding accomplishment for CSS and demonstrates our commitment to creating world-class solutions that maximize ROI for our customers."

CSS had implemented the Sametime application to act as a unified communication and collaborative tool for its over 4500 employees worldwide. The innovative solution encompassed Sametime integration with the company's Open Source chat server, CSS Botnie for unified access to the enterprise resources using Sametime client for desktop and mobile, an audio and video conference for internal office meetings and communications, as well as Sametime integration with intranet portals and integration with Lotus Quickr.

"CSS is a long standing IBM customer and partner and this innovation is a demonstration of the flexible framework provided by Lotus Software to allow customers tailor their business processes towards becoming smarter", said Himanshu Goyal, Country Manager, Academic Initiative, Developer Works and Globalization, IBM India/SA.

Some of the key benefits of the Sametime implementation included travel cost and time reduction, voice trunk utilization, Green IT, fuel emission, parking space at office, automated instant information and response, and user awareness and availability. The Sametime application implemented by CSS acts as an innovative communication tool for organizations worldwide looking to enable information-sharing in a collaborative manner. With over 150 certified IBM Lotus Professionals, CSS has developed several products based on the Lotus Notes platform.
