DeskAlerts

Send alerts to employees via mobile, email, SMS or desktop

About DeskAlerts

DeskAlerts is an internal communications solution which allows businesses to send alerts to staff via any corporate devices, including PCs, mobile devices, tablets, and more. Businesses can utilize one single platform to send out alerts to over 10,000 users in a matter of seconds, to ensure everyone receives important business announcements and updates.

With DeskAlerts, management can send pop-up desktop alerts to employees' screens that block their work until the message has been read. Alerts can also be sent out to employees via mobile push notifications, SMS messages, or emails, meaning alerts will always be received and seen by all employees. The DeskAlerts software automatically tracks and stores alert activity and views with centralized storage that provides instant reporting on user receipt and message views. Businesses can create secure and seamless workflows with DeskAlerts’ integration capabilities with Active Directory, SSO, and API integrations.

When there is any sudden issue or critical situation, users with the relevant permissions can instantly notify all employees or specific departments. DeskAlerts allows users to utilize one interface to directly send a newsletter or announcements about important company events to employees' desktops or mobile devices. These messages can’t be skipped, ignored or minimized and will even appear on screens that are locked, on standby or on screensaver mode.

DeskAlerts has been useful for me in sending IT messages about scheduled shutdowns or technical difficulties. This has been better than using email since our email software has been experiencing bugs, so DeskAlerts makes it so that people can see the alerts even with other technical problems.

Pros

I liked that I did not have to rely on an email system and the variety of different options for who to send messages to.

Cons

Only thing is that the company has had trouble moving to outside alerts for those outside the company but that hasn't been within my scope.

Less calls to the help-desk - less stress for the users in case of some failure - capacity to inform people in emergency situations.

Pros

The capacity to publish rapidly to all users or specific ones important messages about use of critical product like EMR Electronic Medical Record - or important general informations

Cons

Sometimes difficulties to check who have seen or not the published messages. Some bugs like unable to stop the display - but the support team correct the bugs relatively quickly.

Works great.

Reviewed on 2018/10/12

Pros

Very easy to install and configure. Easy to use to send alerts. API works great to automate with scripts or security systems.

Cons

A few bugs here and there but they update often so you usually won't be dealing with them for long.

DeskAlerts solve issues we had around notifying our staff of important issues and events. Previously we relied upon email which was often ignored or missed.

Pros

The software is easy to use and fairly intuitive to navigate around

Cons

The interface looks a little dated compared to how most GUI's are built nowadays.
