British software vendor Sazneo has launched a version of their chat software that you can now embed in any Web service or application. We last wrote about Sazneo about a year ago. “Sazneo Embed is ideal for companies that love the idea but are reluctant to introduce a new application onto busy desktops that already have email, instant messaging or social media tools.” said Brett Davis, CEO. “Many of our clients have already started putting Sazneo into their internal applications and a number of SaaS businesses are now embedding it into their own products to offer a group messaging capability to their clients.”

The chat window looks like this and there are simple instructions on their support site here that tell you how to embed it using iFrames and their API. The service supports multiple channels and is similar to numerous other group chat clients such as Skype or IRC.

Sazneo has changed their pricing: there is a 10-user version available for $5 per user per month, and larger teams will pay $8 per user per month. You can evaluate the service for 30 days for free for either plan.
