AOL & WebEx team up for new AIM Services

AOL is building a partnership with WebEx with plan to launch 'AIM Pro' targeted at small businesses and the self-employed,  more information here.

From what I can tell,  it looks as if they are going to enhance their free AIM messenger service allowing people to do voice, video and web collaboration services using WebEx.  It is yet unclear from this whether the accounts will be hosted by AOL or whether it will be hosted on a server in the customers office,  I would expect it to be the former,  especially at small businesses and self employed would rather have someone else supply the hardware/power/backup etc so that they can get on with their day-to-day job.

Look forward to hearing more about this and seeing how it compares to our Live Communication Server / Live Meeting solution.
