“Extremely effective, easy tracking and reporting of our target users' access to the information. Excellent client technical support in the rare times that we have had technical challenges.”
“SnapComms is a tremendous asset to our organization; I just have to cajole senior leadership to expand the SnapComms product to the entire organization.”
“I'm extremely happy with the ease of use and would highly recommend SnapComms to others".
Very happy with product! Very happy with Support! Sales/Support team have been one of the best I have dealt with in my 15yrs.
“My main reason for recommending SnapComms is value. SnapComms provides 90% of the functionality of "Full Blown" digital signage systems, but at a fraction of the cost and complexity. We primarily use the screen saver functionality with occasional Alerts. Every user's screen becomes an internal billboard for the others when that user is away from his or her desk. We also use the screensaver functionality in our break rooms and in some customer facing areas, delivering a different set of content to those areas which includes both flash videos as well as videos linked to our intranet site.”
SnapComms Annual License fees can be as low as $1/user/channel/year for large enterprise. This means that even if the internal communications budget is small, the SnapComms channels may still be affordable.
The SnapComms channels may also help your organization save money on other types of communications and/or increase productivity. So even if you have no spare internal communications budget, there is a good chance that the SnapComms channels can be cost justified.
