DeskAlerts

Send alerts to employees via mobile, email, SMS or desktop

4.75/5 (4 reviews)

Pros
  • The software is easy to use and fairly intuitive to navigate around
  • I liked that I did not have to rely on an email system and the variety of different options for who to send messages to.
  • Very easy to install and configure. Easy to use to send alerts. API works great to automate with scripts or security systems.
  • The capacity to publish rapidly to all users or specific ones important messages about use of critical product like EMR Electronic Medical Record - or important general informations
Cons
  • The interface looks a little dated compared to how most GUI's are built nowadays.
  • A few bugs here and there but they update often so you usually won't be dealing with them for long.
  • Only thing is that the company has had trouble moving to outside alerts for those outside the company but that hasn't been within my scope.
  • Sometimes difficulties to check who have seen or not the published messages. Some bugs like unable to stop the display - but the support team correct the bugs relatively quickly.

DeskAlerts has been useful for me in sending IT messages about scheduled shutdowns or technical difficulties. This has been better than using email since our email software has been experiencing bugs, so DeskAlerts makes it so that people can see the alerts even with other technical problems.

Pros
I liked that I did not have to rely on an email system and the variety of different options for who to send messages to.

Cons
Only thing is that the company has had trouble moving to outside alerts for those outside the company but that hasn't been within my scope.

DeskAlerts solve issues we had around notifying our staff of important issues and events. Previously we relied upon email which was often ignored or missed.

Pros
