Alerts is a broadcast messaging application which can be run from any web server with no installation. This small clickonce application allows any business to create user accounts for their clients and broadcast status messages. This makes it ideal for service providers, managed services providers and software as a service providers so they can communicate real time events to their customers.
All data is generated in a single XML data file encrypted using a combination of MD5 and SHA1 security that can be easily posted on any website. Upon login users receive the latest updates from your XML and a callback feature allows you to check when customers have last logged in and received an update. Messages are formatted in HTML allowing ultimate flexibility in their look and feel, the application refresh rate, notification size and more.
Alerts similiar to that shown below can be customised in the Alert client and will appear for the appropriate logged in users. Messages can be tailored to each individual user. The program will run minimised until a new alert is received then it will popup and notify the user. Updates are automatically pushed down to users.
The administration component is built into the same alert client and allows complete customisation over the alert window including title, format and size. User passwords, content and images can be configured to provide differentiation for each user and a callback feature allows you to track when users log in to the software.
Apart from the logo on the admin page this application is entirely white-label design and will appear in the Start Menu under Alerts.
