The desktop alert software, DeskAlerts has announced a fresh round of upgrades and functionality additions for its corporate wallpaper solution. The changes to the wallpaper option coincide with the release of the latest version of DeskAlerts, named version 188.8.131.52.
In this latest generation of the enterprise messaging system, there is a brand new option for users logging in to DeskAlerts to send wallpapers to PCs, alongside the usual notification options. The corporate wallpaper solution supports multiple displays, which opens up a host of interesting opportunities for corporate communicators and those charged with employee engagement.
Roman Toporkov, Lead Developer at DeskAlerts, said, "We make a point of continuous improvement and always have one or two great functionality upgrades planned at any point in our development life cycle. In this vein, we are delighted to confirm that version 184.108.40.206 of DeskAlerts, released for the month of July, comes bundled with enhanced corporate wallpaper options. We’re particularly pleased that the wallpaper solution offers multiple display support.
"The notion of communicating key messages and important notifications to other users within the network via a branded wallpaper is very interesting for those concerned with user engagement. With more space to present information, this format also presents a series of unexplored chances to improve corporate communications and a whole set of new communication channels to discover."
Corporate wallpapers are known to be a highly effective way of diffusing important messages to users. Unlike a traditional alert which may be sent as a desktop notification or posted on a company blog or social media page such as Facebook, a corporate wallpaper publishes messages as a desktop background. Guaranteeing the user will see the message, the wallpaper option can be effectively employed to keep all users apprised of important dates or events or more creatively, to showcase motivational messages or recognise staff achievements.
The DeskAlerts wallpaper product gives uses total control of their message. Advanced options include the ability to rotate two or more messages, which can be scheduled and sequenced for the maximum effectiveness.
Roman Toporkov, added, "By their very nature, screensavers or wallpapers are very prominent and very eye-catching. That means there is a real scope to be creative. The medium is also incredibly flexible as a messaging channel and can be used to communicate all manner of information. Our clients use wallpapers for everything from announcing upcoming changes and breaking news to reinforcing key brand messages and mantras to showcasing product announcements and recognising employee achievements."
Along with the creative scope of the wallpaper format, the upgraded version provides the usual DeskAlerts gamut of advanced targeting features. These include delivery to users and or groups or any combination of the two.
The desktop alerts messaging system’s wallpaper module is packed with useful tools and features for users. When creating a new wallpaper, the system supports a multitude of image formats including JPG, PNG, GIF and BMP image files. The images can also be embedded with URLs for the ultimate in interactive engagement and convenience.
A full suite of statistics options gives concrete and usable insight into metrics such as delivery date. The data can also be sorted by useful parameter such as device, contact user and date.
A change and sequence wallpaper option can be used to schedule in a switch to a different wallpaper in the same sequence while a PowerPoint option turns PowerPoint presentations into wallpapers that can then be delivered to targeted users.
As with its previous incarnation, the updated corporate wallpaper function still offers users the power to display wallpapers on digital screens, thanks to digital screen and message board support.
