Desktop Alerting Solution
Schools are fast realising the benefits of using mass notification solutions such as NetSupport Notify to boost school communication and support their emergency and lockdown procedures.
Using NetSupport Notify, schools can communicate effectively with staff and students using one-way alerts and notifications – sending them to desktop users and large information panels in halls and foyers. Alerts automatically take screen focus, meaning they can’t be hidden, ignored or saved for later (even on locked screens). The notifications can even be targeted to select groups and scheduled for maximum impact.
- Send alerts to unlimited number of users/sites
- Flexible delivery options and scheduling
- Full reporting and tracking
- Multi-platform support
- Customise alerts with your branding
- Apply priority levels to alerts
Emergency and lockdown communication
NetSupport Notify can be a vital communication tool during a school’s emergency and lockdown procedure and some integrate it as an official part of their emergency plans, due to its ability to send a clear and concise message or instruction (maximum 1000 characters) to all connected computers – across multiple platforms, specific users/devices or selected departments. The delivered message automatically takes screen focus on recipient computers and can be accompanied by an audible alert to ensure attention is gained.
If there isn’t time to type a lengthy message, the sender can create and use a ready-made “emergency response” alert, and send it from the office or on the move with our dedicated mobile apps.
Evidence of acknowledgment
Not only does NetSupport Notify send messages to selected/all staff and students in a single action (across multiple platforms), and with its screen presence, users can’t ignore the message – and saving precious time in the case of more urgent alerts. It also allows recurring events to be scheduled in advance for a fixed time and date – hourly, daily, weekly, even every “xx minutes”.
Plus, it does not require regular management of contacts, making it a quick and easy solution to use
