MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 14, 2014 /CNW/ - NetSupport announces the latest update to its desktop alerting and notification software solution – NetSupport Notify v3.
For organisations large or small, NetSupport Notify provides a cost-effective, secure and instant method for delivering key news, IT announcements or security alerts direct to desktop users across an enterprise.
From PC, tablet or smartphone, administrators can send concise, attention-grabbing alerts that take screen focus on recipient desktops ensuring messages can be seen instantly and are not reliant on users accessing them whenever they choose, as with email or the company intranet. Acknowledging the growing use of centralised information screens, messages can also be sent to large unattended digital displays.
Each message carries an appropriate priority status, can be fully branded with an organisation's colours and logo and, to really bring the delivered message to the recipient's attention, a supporting audible alert can be included. Add to the message by including clickable links, schedule recurring announcements for fixed times and dates and keep a record of all messages sent, received and acknowledged.
Selected highlights in version 3 include: extended mobile capabilities with a new Android Notification Console adding to the already available iOS version; adding to the existing Windows, Mac and Linux desktop support, version 3 provides full delivery support for Windows 8/8.1; the ability to send full screen messages with an appropriate timeout – ideal for unattended information panels; and a new hotkey emergency response option for use in critical situations.
Commenting on one of the stand-out features in the latest update, NetSupport's Development Director Rob Hawkins said: "When time is tight, it isn't always possible to type a lengthy message so the new hotkey feature acknowledges the requirement among customers for a more immediate response mechanism when dealing with critical scenarios."
