ShoreTel has begun field trials of its plug-in for IBM Lotus Sametime, the company said in a news release. The plug-in, being demonstrated at this week's Lotusphere 2009 conference in Orlando, includes call control and management features of ShoreTel's ShoreWare Call Manager end-user application suite.

The plug-in requires ShoreWare CSTA server, ShoreTel 7.5 or above, and IBM Lotus Sametime 8.0.1. Lotus Notes and Domino 8.0 is required for the click-to-dial capability from within Lotus Notes and Domino. There was no word on when the plug-in will be commercially
