Corporate Wallpaper

Keep Staff Informed Without Interrupting Their Work

What is Corporate Wallpaper?

Corporate Wallpaper is the background image (or backdrop) that appears when a computer is switched on and before any programs are active. 

This highly visual and engaging communication channel is seen by staff when they log into their computer before they open any applications. Organizations can seize this opportunity to publish important company messages directly to staff.

It is highly favored by communicators for being subtle and non-intrusive, yet it is highly conspicuous as staff see the wallpaper before starting work.

How Corporate Wallpaper Works

The easy-to-use SnapComms Desktop Wallpaper solution is activated once a computer is switched on. The background image and content created by you – the SnapComms Content Administrator - will then automatically appear upon all targeted employees’ screens.    

This highly visual channel utilizes the maximum display real-estate, taking over the entire screen. It is flexible in design and format, enabling important internal communication messages to be presented as a background image or pattern.



Why are Wallpapers so Powerful?


It presents a unique opportunity to communicate company content in a visual and timely way. Wallpaper messages are seen typically at the start of a working day (when the computer is first switched on). It’s the first message an employee sees – at a time when they’re highly receptive. They can’t miss it!
