Multi-tasking in the workplace is set to get a whole lot easier with the incorporation of new web plug-in module from DeskAlerts. In the midst of the festive season the world’s go-to provider for desktop alert notifications is offering users the convenience of viewing banner style messages on any website embedded with the software’s custom code.
After analyzing client feedback DeskAlerts identified the capacity to view content via webpages as a key area for potential improvement.
DeskAlerts software engineers then began work on rolling out an advanced web plug-in module that allows users to embed websites with a code that acts as a placeholder. Once programmed to support the plug-in module websites are then capable of displaying notifications in pop-up banner form.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, “In our latest user reach-out we identified an overwhelming demand for the incorporation of website compatibility. We immediately responded to this appeal by launching our brand new web-plug in module which is set to help workplaces boost productivity across the board.”
Distraction in the workplace is an issue faced by almost every sector. From finance and law to healthcare and computing, employees are constantly plagued by diversions that sway their focus from the task at hand. According to the latest research from Workplace Options distractions cost businesses big time. In the US alone they account for an estimated annual loss of $650 billion. Furthermore a recent article published by All Business revealed that the average worker spends around 11 seconds on a project before being distracted. It then takes then 25 minutes to thoroughly re-focus on the task at hand. When every member of the team falls victim to these habits the results can have a hugely negative impact on a business’s bottom line.
Dean Debnam, chief executive of Workplace Options explains, “It’s expected that employees will be inundated with plenty of distractions throughout the workday. The important thing is to remember is for employees to find a way to balance their workday and find ways to focus.”
Whether operating a large scale corporation or a small independent enterprise the phrase ‘time is money’ is universally applicable. Distractions represent financial loss which means it’s critically important for workplaces to take every step they can to minimize employee disruption. DeskAlerts’ newly released web plug-in module is helping workplace managers do just this by ensuring that employees can receive internal communications messages without having to deflect from the webpage that they are currently viewing. Rather than receive a notification and divert back to their homepage users can view the message as a pop-up banner. It’s quick, convenient and guaranteed to enhance workplace productivity.
Vdovin explains, “The statistics on the financial cost of workplace distractions are shocking. The situation is particularly alarming for underfunded hospitals and healthcare organisations that are losing piles of cash due to wavering attention in the workforce. The web plug-in module has been engineered to help workplaces combat distractions, enrich productivity and minimize loss.”
True to DeskAlerts’ core commitment to usability the entire web plug-in module function is incredibly easy to use. All web plug-in pop-ups are embedded with the same features as standard desktop notifications. Messages can’t be ignored, set aside or deleted which gives administrators the complete peace of mind that all internal communications will be acknowledged.
Workplaces employing intranet websites and corporate portals enjoy complete control over web-plug in module notifications. Messages can be targeted to specific users or a group of multiple recipients.
The new web plug-in module can be integrated into existing DeskAlerts 7 system. This will see DeskAlerts’ global portfolio of clients begin to reap the benefits of the brand new feature. Current clients include Siemens, Deloitte, Hapag-Lloyd, BP and NHS.
