A Desktop Alert is a digital, pop-up alert message that appears directly onto employee computer screens or mobile devices.
Its unmissable format is ideal for sending high priority messages to staff, such as breaking news, emergency notifications or essential employee communications.
This high priority notification channel – sometimes known as a mass notification system - bypasses email systems completely and is guaranteed to get 100% reach and readership. An added bonus if your email channel is down!
A message is created within the SnapComms Content Manager platform by your organization’s appointed administrators. Text, images, video and hyperlinks can be incorporated, along with other features such as instant full screen display or audio notification, depending upon severity of message.
Once published, all employees with the SnapComms App installed on their desktop or mobile phone will receive a pop-up or push notification featuring the message.
An Alert is a highly visual message with a real sense of ‘now’. Think of it as a super priority channel that staff simply cannot ignore. It is ultra-effective for pushing out communications that are urgent or have high importance.
Bypassing email systems completely, a desktop notification’s interruptive nature means message cut-through is immediate, reliable and guaranteed – as well as measurable. Separate to email, an Alert avoids Outlook user ‘rules’ which often result in communications being ignored or unread.
Communicators benefit from greater control and visibility of messaging broadcasts and increasing employee awareness and engagement.
