DeskAlerts Upgrades System To Encompass Non-domain Devices
DeskAlerts is no stranger to innovation, with 2014 seeing a myriad of upgrades and enhancements integrated into its desktop notifications alert software. As the year draws to a close the internal communications company has embedded its system with the capacity to send content to non-domain users. This is set to emerge as an invaluable tool for companies with ‘in the field’ or external employees who utilize machines outside of the company network.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, “Innovation sits at the heart of our service and our engineers and developers are constantly on the search for ways to enrich our software. While DeskAlerts is primarily an internal communications solution the reality is that contemporary workforces don’t always keep up a physical presence at the office. This makes it difficult to maintain efficient communications with freelancers, stay at home employees and ‘in the field’ workers. The next generation Active Directory module function offers publishers a solution to this problem by allowing them to send notifications to machines outside of the company network. It’s simple, easy and categorically convenient.”
At its core the all new feature is designed to make operations significantly easier for the large portion of contemporary workplaces with employees that operate outside of the office. Using the convenient Active Directory groups structure publishers are able to send notifications to members of the workforce that use non-domain devices. This gives publishers utter flexibility to communicate with their entire workforce from anywhere, at any time.
Many of today’s contemporary job roles involve more time spent out of the office than in it. From hospitals and medical centres to finance and law, no sector is exempt. While an ‘in the field’ presence is incredibly useful it can also make it difficult for workplaces to upkeep an efficient communications strategy. The Active Directory module function offers workplaces an intelligent solution to the hurdle and allows publishers to communicate with an entire workforce, no matter what their physical location.
Vdovin explains, “Gone are the days where job roles involved a permanent office presence. Today’s workforce is dynamic and ever-changing, with many employees constantly on the move or operating outside of company headquarters. DeskAlerts is at the forefront of this trend and offers workplaces a quick, easy and convenient solution for up keeping communication with employees operating from non-domain devices.”
In customary DeskAlerts style the Active Directory module function is effortlessly easy to use. Despite the fact that notifications are being sent to external recipients the process is fast, simple and instantaneous. For publishers it’s as straightforward as composing a message, selecting non-domain recipients using the convenient groups structure from Active Directory and hitting send.
“Functionality and convenience are always on our radar however they never surpass the importance of user experience. Our engineers have ensured that the new Active Directory module function is just as easy to use as all of DeskAlerts’ other features” adds Vdovin.
The roll out of Active Directory module function is just one in a long line of improvements made to the DeskAlerts service over the past few months. Previous upgrades include the introduction of emergency color codes, integration of audio/visual support, an improved console interface and the option of using DeskAlerts in French. All have contributed towards cementing the company’s status as the world’s leading internal communications solution for workforces operating in a diverse range of market sectors.
