In its continuing quest to discover how corporate messaging can be ever more effective, the corporate messaging tool DeskAlerts has turned its attentions to SharePoint and RSS.
In new research revealed this week, it has discovered that an increasing number of clients are turning on to the fact that SharePoint combined with RSS helps to create a more productive working environment for clients. On the back of this, DeskAlerts has confirmed that its messaging tool can now be used to harness the power of SharePoint with RSS, thanks to built in RSS compatibility.
DeskAlerts studies show that SharePoint is more effective with RSS than when used alone. Its investigations found that 54% of US corporations use SharePoint to fulfill their intranet requirements. However, employees are required to constantly check back in to get updates. In contrast, using RSS offers an effortless way to deliver information. The DeskAlerts survey found that 63% of clients now use SharePoint with RSS, suggesting that many firms are actively looking to streamline employee communications and offer colleagues faster and more efficient ways to be kept up to date with internal events.
SharePoint can set up RSS feeds from site collections, top-level sites and subsites, web applications and lists. DeskAlerts corporate messaging solution enables users to send messages from any RSS-enabled source, including SharePoint, directly to employees’ desktops, where they will appear as pop-up windows or scrolling news tickers.

Our research proves that more corporations are making this a priority with such a large number now confirming that they are utilizing SharePoint in conjunction with RSS in order to remove the need to log in for updates and keep all employees totally up to date around the clock. With DeskAlerts capacity to integrate RSS feeds, we have made it easier than ever for organizations to streamline their corporate communications.”
