Improving your company’s internal communications might seem overwhelming – especially if your efforts to date to cut through and reach staff seem to be going nowhere.
In today’s workplace, traditional internal communications channels aren’t getting noticed as much as they used to. Emails are going unopened and unread in employees’ inboxes. People have too many meetings where they don’t learn a lot of information. Intranet sites have become cumbersome and difficult to navigate.
It’s no surprise then that important information you want to share with your employees may be going unnoticed. The risk of this is a workplace that is not cohesive – people aren’t acting on up-to-date information and practices.
Cutting through all of this can be a challenge – but there is a solution. DeskAlerts is an internal communications tool that can be implemented in your business to overcome these barriers to communicating.
DeskAlerts allows you to send messages in the form of a pop-up window that can’t be ignored direct to your employees’ PC desktops, no matter where they are located in the world. Messages can be sent even if your employees’ screens are locked or on screensaver mode.
You can use the system to communicate important corporate information, alert staff to an emergency situation, deliver videos, drive staff to content that lives elsewhere such as your intranet site, send newsletters and more. You can rest assured that they are going to see the information and will be required to act on it to remove the pop-up from their screens.
Some of the key features of DeskAlerts include:
Automation: You can schedule your DeskAlerts in advance to be sent at a pre-determined time.
Customization: DeskAlerts templates can be customized to suit your corporate branding. You can also create templates for different types of messages so all you have to do is fill in updated information when you have something to communicate.
Targeting: With DeskAlerts you can target messages to niche audience sectors. For example, you may want to communicate only with staff who are in a particular time zone. Or perhaps you only want to share information with your finance and accounting team, not the rest of the organization.
Surveys, polls and quizzes: Boost engagement with staff by conducting polls, surveys and quizzes – allowing you to get their feedback instantly.
Measurement: You can see your metrics easily and determine who has seen your messages and who hasn’t.
Campaign solution: DeskAlerts’ Campaign Solution allows you to gather and bundle different types of content with just one click.
Corporate screensaver: When your employees’ computers are in screensaver mode, a corporate screensaver will display key messages about important information. Using this in conjunction with other communications delivery channels is a great way to reinforce your messages as part of internal communications campaigns.
Digital signage: This works similarly to the corporate screensaver. With this option you can turn various screens inside your buildings into digital billboards displaying your information.
