InformaCast Desktop Notification

Singlewire offers two products for reaching your people via desktop notification: The InformaCast Desktop Notifier and InformaCast on Windows. These options provide the flexibility to easily deploy desktop notification across your entire organization, including to remote workers.

Singlewire’s desktop notification products deliver pop-up notifications in front of running applications, so people will notice the message immediately. In addition to the message text, the desktop notifications can include audio. Your message can also include message confirmation, where respondents can select from provided responses.

Singlewire’s desktop notification is particularly effective when used in conjunction with other notification methods, such as SMS text messages, push notifications to smartphones, and broadcast audio across desk phones and overhead paging systems.

Benefits

  • Broadcast an emergency mass notification or alert to computer desktops
  • Notifications “pop-up” in front of other applications to alert users
  • Audio plays out of the computer speakers
  • Audio can be ad-hoc or pre-recorded
  • Easily deploy and manage as part of IT infrastructure
  • Scalable to organizations of every size
  • Include options for message confirmation

Easy Installation and Configuration

Installation and configuration can be done individually or en masse.

Mac or Windows computers running the InformaCast Desktop Notifier will automatically register to your InformaCast server (Advanced or Fusion) as IP Speakers, and be added to designated recipient groups.

Similarly, you can install the InformaCast app individually for each Windows device or you can use Group Policy before they can register with your InformaCast Fusion or InformaCast Mobile provider.
