A while back I had written a short article on using OpenFire as a cheap OCS alternative. Today I’ll note some things you may miss when moving from Openfire to OCS:
-Easy ScreenShot capture & send
-Free integration of public facing Chat client (click to chat)
Of course you will gain tons of features:
-Very smooth Desktop sharing
-Easily bump up a call to audio or video conferencing
-Great integration to Outlook
And much more…I would say that Openfire served us well for the time we used it. It was never down, it was very easy to implement , very easy to federate to public IM systems and just had a lot of nice features.
If you have any features lost/gained to add to this list, please comment below.
