DeskAlerts ups ante for digital signage for employee communications

13 Jan 2016

Internal communications specialist DeskAlerts is adding digital signage to its repertorie, making its internal communications software compatible with any device capable of displaying a web page.

DeskAlerts says the digital signage features ‘mark a new era of functionality’ for its clients, and are expected to have wide appeal, including for schools, hospitals, corporate offices and government departments.

In the past, DeskAlerts notifications could only target desktop and mobile devices running on Windows, OS X, Android and iOS.

The new features support communication via any internet compatible device, including informational panels, smart TVs, electronic whiteboards and gaming consoles.

Roman Toporkov, DeskAlerts lead developer, says the ability to communicate with employees via any internet compatible device has been developed to improve corporate communication strategies in any sector.

He says while PCs and smartphones dominate contemporary corporate communication strategies, smart technology is becoming increasingly popular in modern workplaces, with TVs, smartboards and digital informational panels are rapidly gaining popularity.

“The new digital signage features embrace this trend and ensure that modern workplaces can enjoy as much flexibility and functionality as possible when it comes to keeping employees in the loop,” Toporkov says.

The company says the new features are the result of client feedback and internal research.
