      For a few years we’ve been using this little utility program on our home network with great success. We have it start with Windows and it has low impact on Startup. You get a little Systray icon.  To send a message or to transfer a file, or folder, or image simply double-click on the icon. A small windows opens wherein you can see a list of other users on your network who also have the app installed. Click to highlight one or more users then type a message, or click to send a file, folder, or image. You can, of course, type a message to go with the file. If you allow it in the app’s settings, ipMsg will keep a log of all messages and files sent and received. You can delete the log anytime, if desired. Messages and files are sent and received almost instantly. This is very convenient for us on our home network, and I feel it would work equally well on a small business network.

      You can get it from several places:
