Corporate screensaver can be a very effective communication medium and there is a lot of scope to be creative and engage the employee using this space.
(PRWEB) August 16, 2013
DeskAlerts, the leading web-based employee communication tool, has published a brand new infographic which promotes the versatility of corporate screensaver. Often overlooked by many organizations, the DeskAlerts infographic shows just how much more any company which supplies its employees with a computer could get from using custom desktop screensaver rather than one of the images supplied as standard by the computer operating system.
The DeskAlerts infographic shows the desktop corporate screensaver to be an incredibly versatile tool with myriad options for communicating with employees. Among the features depicted in the informational graphic are the screensaver as a space for publishing corporate news and for pushing motivational or celebratory messages. Other suggested uses include using the space to publish corporate event reminders to increase productivity and efficiency. A notable statistic included on the infographic is that organizations which take the time to develop communication strategies in this channel to enhance dialogue with employees typically provide 47% higher returns to shareholders.
DeskAlerts has launched a corporate screensaver solution, which allows companies of any size and geographic spread to publish messages to employees as desktop screensaver. The messages appear on user desktops and can be scheduled to run in sequence or rotate in the event that there are two or more messages to display to staff members.
The corporate screensaver solution supports a wide range of image formats, including embedded JPG, PNG, BMP and GIF files as well as URLs. Active directory and e-directory support means screensavers can be sent to specific users or user groups and synchronized across unlimited domains. Scheduling can be used to pre-load communications and statistics allow for delivery to be tracked down to specific users and desktops.
Powerful functionality allows for change and sequence, meaning screensavers can be set to appear at a specific time and in a specific order before switching to a pre-determined alternate screensaver. Compatible with PowerPoint, a corporate screensaver can also show presentations rather than static images. There is also digital screen and monitor functionality, which gives the option to display screensavers on digital screen monitors.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts, said, "We feel strongly that the desktop monitor is a very underutilized space in many organizations but as our new infographic shows, this shouldn't be the case. Corporate screensaver can be a very effective communication medium and there is a lot of scope to be creative and engage the employee using this space."
