It's a complete overhaul of DeskAlerts message delivery mechanism, that minimizes the delay between message being sent and received, effectively bringing it down to fraction of a second. It also supports much higher messaging volume - enabling you to send out tens of thousands of messages daily, without allocating too much hardware for the server.
"DeskAlerts provided a reliable communications channel, which was proven to be vital in the state of emergency during terror attack, in the event of usual channels being overloaded and inaccessible."
Improved near real-time technology - sometimes seconds count and even fractions of a second could be a life-changing difference. Ability to deliver information in almost real-time means getting critical updates in hands of those who can act fast. With typical network latency delivering your message could take seconds and even minutes if your network is less optimized. Emergency Mass Notification uses technology that allows long-held connection with a server thus getting messages delivered immediately to thousands and even tens of thousands.
Skins - skin your critical communications to give them professional look and feel (* we will require skins to be presented 2 weeks in advance before the module is deployed)
Notification Templates - Create emergency notification templates to save time and use them again in the future.
Targeting - Target messages to all staff, or just groups of staff, depending on the situation.
Popup alerts - Messages will appear as pop-up alerts across employee screen on Laptops, PCs and their mobile devices.
