Customer profile

One of Australasia’s largest provider of repair services for laser printers, faxes, multifunction devices and copiers decide to employ SnapComms internal communications tools to improve their internal communications. With an extremely busy work environment, they were finding that typical employee communication channels, such as internal email notifications, were often not being read by staff as they were leaving them to read at a time when they were not so busy.


“In many cases the ‘quiet time’ did not eventuate which resulted in the email communication being forgotten about or

left for so long that it had lost relevance when finally read.”  - Brett, Marketing & Communications Manager
