A Desktop Ticker is a narrow window of scrolling text typically displayed at the bottom of a computer screen.
Its short, snappy format is ideal for conveying bite-size chunks of information to your employees. It is often used for signposting and hyperlinking to more detailed content within its headline.
Also known as a scrolling desktop news feed, a Desktop Ticker allows the reader to scan headlines while working within other applications.
Desktop Tickers are created within the SnapComms Content Manager and can include text, hyperlinks, icons, and RSS feeds. They can be set to stay on screen permanently until clicked or to reappear at scheduled intervals.
Once published, all employees with the SnapComms App installed on their desktop will receive the scrolling notification, equipping them with the latest, most accurate information on-the-spot.
Special features such as varied scrolling speeds, insertion of icons, multiple URLs and headlines, plus forced appearance so that Desktop Tickers run continuously until turned off all lead to 100% readership.
Firstly, a Desktop Ticker arrives on your employees’ screens, on top of every other application, making it virtually impossible to miss. Its overt appearance makes it an effective tool for pushing out important news, reminders, and updates to employees.
Desktop Tickers bypass email systems completely, ensuring message cut-through is immediate, reliable, and guaranteed – as well as measurable.
Communicators benefit from greater control and visibility of messaging broadcasts and increasing employee awareness and engagement.
