IBM announced today that Global Hyatt  Corporation chose Lotus Collaboration and Unified Communications Software including Notes 8 and Sametime 8. They will deploy a broad set of the latest Sametime capabilities to their users.

Global Hyatt is making the latest IBM Lotus Sametime functionality available to all of its employees worldwide so they can all be on the same system. When fully deployed in 2009, 25,000 Global Hyatt employees will use Sametime version 8 software to communicate with their coworkers, vendors and suppliers, through multiple media such as instant messages, visuals and voice. Global Hyatt purchased IBM Sametime Web conferencing licenses as well, so that corporate offices and hotels can now host conferences on-line. In addition, Sametime software can easily interface with other common instant messaging systems such as Yahoo! Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger.
