The desktop alert software DeskAlerts has announced that it has now completed its latest scheduled round of updates for its Android and iOS mobile applications. It confirmed today that clients using its apps to communicate while on the go will notice a series of changes and improvements whether using the DeskAlerts app on their iPad, iPhone, smartphone or tablet device.
Mobile computing has been called the third digital revolution by many analysts. Figures from the Cisco Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, 2013–2018 report show that global mobile data traffic grew by 81% last year. The same report predicts that the number of mobile devices in existence will surpass global population figures in 2014 and monthly global mobile data traffic will surpass 15 exabytes by 2018. This research all points to the fact that increasingly, the world’s population is surfing the web, communicating, working and socializing via their smartphone or tablet device.
In an environment fuelled by mobile devices, it is essential that corporate service providers and enterprise solutions keep pace. In line with the increase in mobile computing usage and predictions for increased popularity in future, the DeskAlerts mobile app improvements are designed to keep pace with client’s mobile computing habits and make it easy for existing DeskAlerts users to access essential functions just as easily outside of the office and on the move, as in the office and at a desk.
Denis Potekhin, Developer at DeskAlerts said, ”The days of enterprise binding its users to their PCs in the office are over. Our research indicates that more companies use mobile devices (phones or tablets) than ever before and more of our clients are implementing and encouraging BYOD schemes. With a new generation of employees who can work anytime, anywhere, effective communication channels and tools are not just important, they are fundamental.
DeskAlerts for Mobile which includes applications for Android and iOS is intended as the turnkey solution for those users.”
The August update of the DeskAlerts mobile applications for Android and iOS includes a number of functionality changes, upgrades and additions. Key amongst these new developments is the ability for mobile users to send surveys, quizzes directly to tablet and smartphone devices within the organization’s network.
Additional changes include fresh new templates with improvements to design and usability. Corporate users conscious of creating an internal company identity can now also brand their DeskAlerts mobile app with their own company icons and logos. This feature is similar to the custom skin option that users of the desktop version of the enterprise messaging system can request.
One of the core purposes of the DeskAlerts mobile app changes is to allow organizations to keep pace with mobile employees. Those in charge of business communications can set the new DeskAlerts mobile app messaging capabilities to work right away. They can be used to send important updates and notifications to employees on the go or working away from the office. The enhanced mobile app from the desktop alerts solution also makes it possible for communicators to send messages with include URLs to chosen recipients, making even mobile-based content more interactive and engaging.
Denis Potekhin, Developer at DeskAlerts said, “Making our alert software more mobile computing friendly adds a lot of additional convenience and value for our clients. We expect it to make quite a noticeable difference to day-to-day communication activities by offering all of the convenience of our notification system on mobile devices. With our mobile messaging solution users will be able to reach co-workers even when they are away from their PCs or laptops.”
As with all DeskAlerts notifications, messages can also be scheduled and message delivery reports are available.
