IBM adds LinkedIn integration to Lotus Notes

Access business networks from their work email.

IBM has announced that Lotus Notes users will have access to TripIt and LinkedIn applications from their desktop screen.

The move will allow customers to easily access travel information and business networks from their work email.

"We are pleased that Notes is the first open collaboration software to be granted desktop direct access by both LinkedIn and TripIt," said Kevin Cavanaugh, IBM collaboration software messaging vice president. "This demonstrates the versatility of Lotus Notes in web collaboration."

Ellen Levy, corporate development vice president at LinkedIn, added: "Now that LinkedIn is an integral part of the professional's daily work flow in Lotus Notes, we anticipate that our users will get even more value from frequent, useful interactions with their professional networks."

IBM will deliver the new integration through two software widgets, which it described as the first of many.

"Whatever Lotus customers need, there is a widget for that," promised Cavanaugh.

Users wanting to obtain the plug-ins for Lotus Notes can visit the TripIt or LinkedIn web sites.
