Effective communication in education is critical

With so many students and employees, a number of differently located campuses, staff working autonomously ... it can be so easy for people to lose the track of the institutions's latest news and important information.

In schools, colleges and universities information flows all day long – and information overload affects this sector enormously.

That is why it is crucial to have a tool that can cut through the digital “noise” by ensuring all staff and students are kept informed... a tool like DeskAlerts.

What our customers say about DeskAlerts

“University uses DeskAlerts to give customers updates regarding IT services. DeskAlerts preempts unnecessary helpdesk calls by keeping all customers informed.”

Education, Great Britain


Our main direct and urgent messaging system

“DeskAlerts software succeeded the homemade solution and provided the missing capabilities of detailed reporting, policy delegation and others.”
Olivier Jeuniau
Information Systems Department

The only solution that fits the needs

“DeskAlerts was the only software solution with the features we wanted to do the job we needed. It was also both flexible and affordable, which was the deciding factor in our investment. After briefly considering writing our own software we decided that would be unsustainable and would take away time we could spend on our core business.”
Nick Williams
University of Southampton
Saint-Anne private school

A tool that works across different operating systems and delivers messages with the rich content

“We were looking for a software solution, that could fulfill the requirements of a school announcement system. After trying a few solutions, we opted for DeskAlerts. DeskAlerts allows the school director to transmit pre-recorded messages (text, audio, video) to the teacher’s computer in our classrooms. With an alert appearing on screen, the teacher powers on beamer and speakers and plays the message to the students in this classroom.”
Victor Gonçalves
