DeskAlerts delivers benefits across a wide variety of uses. Unlike other internal messaging systems, DeskAlerts offers the advantages of completely customizable server and desktop configurations, the added functionality of instant-feedback surveys, the ability to send desktop alerts from any location, Active Directory and eDirectory integration, multi-domain support; centralized data storage – all in one, easy-to-use.
A DeskAlerts System can save money and improve efficiency for the entire organization:
Improve internal communications
The biggest obstacle to effective communications with employees, partners, and other stakeholders is that information gets lost in the shuffle. DeskAlerts sends instant alerts to specified recipients in the form of a pop-up window which requires a user response and cannot be skipped or ignored. The high visibility combined with our 100% delivery rate guarantee means you can be sure they get the message.
Drive traffic to the intranet
Reinforce intranet usage by including links to intranet resources in your alerts. You can easily create shortcuts in your DeskAlerts Client and create individual Desktop Clients with different shortcuts for every group and department in your company.
Ensure employee awareness
Making sure everyone is informed of what is going on in the company is a critical element of success. Keep the sales force informed of inventory issues and new products or specials. Make sure all the employees have seen the new ad campaign or read the latest press release. Keep the Customer Service staff instantly informed of how to deal with new issues or fixes.
Reduce staff load and call volume
DeskAlerts delivers both proactive and emergency network information that can’t be ignored – whether or not the email is working. DeskAlerts can also be used to keep employees informed of progress on IT fixes – dramatically reducing both calls to the Help Desk and the frustration levels of users throughout the organization.
Get instant feedback
With DeskAlerts Survey Manager you can create and send instant surveys and get results within minutes. Unlike email, DeskAlerts surveys pop up immediately and cannot be skipped, therefore all employees will deliver instant feedback.
Save the planet and reduce your electric bill
Back up the company’s commitment to save the environment – and the budget – by setting up automatic alerts that go out at 4:55 every evening to remind employees to turn off computers, lights, and other electric devices.
Becoming more “green” as an organization is not only good for the environment – it’s good for your image, your employee’s morale, and your utility bill – which in the end helps make you more competitive. Whether your company has made an official commitment to become more environmentally friendly or not, DeskAlerts provides a low-impact way to make a high-impact on your carbon footprint, and your bottom line.
Simply set the DeskAlerts system to send out a message every evening at 4:55 to remind employees to turn off their computers, shut off the lights, and turn off heaters and air conditioning. With a one-time set up of an automatic desktop alert, you can remind every person in the organization to save money and the environment with a pop-up message that can’t be skipped or ignored. Employees want to do the right thing – remind them of how important it is to take the small steps that have a big impact.
The average desktop computer uses about 120 Watts per hour. A small company with 300 computers could save the following:
|243,360 kWh||The amount of electricity required to run 300 computers during non-working hours for one year|
|The amount of money it costs to run 300 computers during non-working hours each year|
|155 tons of CO2||The amount of greenhouse gas emissions created by this wasted electricity|
21,000 – 103,000 trees
|The number of trees required to offset these greenhouse emissions|
