Additional Comments from the 2013 Customer Survey
“Easy to deploy, robust, does what it says”.
“I'm extremely happy with the ease of use and would highly recommend SnapComms to others".
“It's a great tool that's very easy to use.”
“Easy to use, it does work, I have not experienced any technical set backs, communicates short messages effectively not adding the the overloaded email inbox, and we like it.”
“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.”
“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 is a tremendous asset to our organization; I just have to cajole senior leadership to expand the SnapComms product to the entire organization.”
Very happy with product! Very happy with Support! Sales/Support team have been one of the best I have dealt with in my 15yrs.
