The SAP instant messenger program 'SapTALK' is a free service for the SAP environment that allows users to instantly send real time messages to each other. The first message sent displays a popup window containing the message and inviting the receiver to join conversation. Once within the conversation the users are able to send messages to each other as they would with any other instant messaging service such as MSN messenger or ICQ.
