What if you need to reach your employees right away? And I don’t mean within 5 minutes or whenever they feel like checking their inboxes. In case of a last minute meeting cancellation or even a hurricane alert, Desktop alerts are there to save the day! Here are 3 situations in which these bold, eye-catching pop ups can make your life a bit easier:
1. Emergency alerts
During any calamity, time is of the essence. Whether it’s a fire, terrorist attack or an earthquake, it’s important for an organization to instantly notify its employees so they can take proper action and worse can be prevented. This is where desktop alerting comes in handy. With just one mouse click, a pop up message is sent to all employees’ desktops whenever disaster strikes, giving organizations with hundreds or even thousands of employees the ability to quickly secure their safety. Potentially even save their lives.
2. Urgent IT notifications
It happens to the best of us: an email malfunction, a system crash or even an out-of-order phone line. A technical outage is sometimes unavoidable and often totally unexpected. Making sure everybody knows what’s going on ASAP and more importantly when it will be fixed, saves you from a million phone calls to IT and probably a lot of cursing as well.
3. Important announcements
Not only in emergency situations or IT outages, it’s crucial you reach your staff right away. Desktop alerting can also be beneficial to quickly communicate other types of messages. What if a meeting gets cancelled last minute? Or if the CEO wants to share an important announcement? A product launch or maybe even an event that needs some more promoting? Desktop alerts are the perfect tool to make staff aware of anything and everything by giving your messages that extra push (literally).
