How Real Companies Use DeskAlerts as Their Alert Notification System

An alert notification system has a range of uses in an organization. It can help improve internal communication, it can quickly inform employees about an emerging issue, it can alert staff to an emergency situation and give directions on what to do next, it can be used to quickly survey or poll employees, and it can also deliver training.


Locked Screen Alert


Many organizations around the globe have turned to DeskAlerts as their preferred alert notification system.

DeskAlerts is a powerful internal communication solution that enables you to quickly send messages to your employees’ desktop screens which appear as a pop-up notification that can’t be ignored, skipped or minimized. You can be sure that your people have seen your important communication, as it reports these results in real time.

Features od DeskAlerts include the ability to schedule notifications in advance, the ability to target groups of employees with unique messaging, being able to use the system to deliver video content or hyperlink to content that lives elsewhere, for example on your intranet site.

DeskAlerts can be used as a complement to other internal communications channels deployed by your organization such as email, intranet and corporate social media channels, or as a standalone system.

Some real-life examples of DeskAlerts being used successfully by organizations large and small include:
