What is desktop alert?
A desktop alert is a pop-up notification that appears on a user's screen on top of any other windows. The messages are created in the DeskAlerts Control panel by an authorized content creator.
Grab employees' attention instantly with desktop alerts
An employee receives 120 emails on average each day. When there is something urgent or critical to be communicated internally, email is not a reliable option.
Unlike email, desktop pop-up alerts guarantee that any must-see corporate information will cut across and won't be missed by your employees, and:
- appear on top of other windows
- can be set to take up the whole screen or only a part of it
- are able to be shown on locked screens.
Engage employees with rich content and feedback features
Desktop alerts are distinctly visual messages that give the reader a sense of immediacy. This makes them powerful for pushing out high priority information.
And the variety of content types and settings guarantees high engagement:
- Send text, images, video, files, links, HTML, RSVPs, surveys, newsletters.
- An opt-in / opt-out option in the alerts software for non-urgent messages.
- Social reactions.

What our customers say about DeskAlerts
Case Studie For St George's University Of London
“DeskAlerts is central to our customer communication strategy. Our IT department uses it successfully to pre-empt calls to the help desk by keeping our customers informed of any issues. ”
Education, Great Britain
We use it to ensure that urgent messages are communicated quickly and clearly“We have been using DeskAlerts for 5 years now and find the product excellent at communicating important information to our entire Trust quickly. It is so easy to use and maintain so provides a cost effective solution for “real time” messaging. Originally, used just by the IT team, the product is now in daily use by the Trust’s Communications team to ensure that urgent messages are communicated quickly and clearly to a large number of staff, thus helping to support the delivery of patient care to the highest standard.”
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, UK
Improved IT communications helps to preserve data and tens of thousands of dollars“It's very important when we send a message about maintenance or downtime and that type of thing that people will read it, will acknowledge it, and that there will be no excuse like "I didn't see the email". DeskAlerts software is pretty simple to use and can be learned quickly. And it's natively easy.”
Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
Multidisciplinary research institution
Save time and money“We have several information systems, where from time to time we need to perform some maintenance tasks. Before DeskAlerts we needed 2- 3 hours to check that everybody has been informed about maintenance (emails, calling, ...) and this involved 4-5 persons. Next usage is informing employees about special situations, related to specific building, area, ... . Before we had to send 2-3 persons to walk through offices and share information to everybody, now we simply inform them by using DeskAlerts (easy 1 hour is lost). With DeskAlerts we can very fast react and prevent possible contamination of product. This can sometimes mean saving several 1000 €.”
