Ticker Tape is a simple way to 'broadcast' unobtrusive, yet highly visible, messages to workstations spread over one or more Ticker Tape Sites, allowing users to be kept up-to-date without affecting their work.
It's ideal for Service Desks or Administrators wanting to proactively advise people of new issues or to update them on the progress of current issues affecting them - providing a simple way to substantially reduce the number of unnecessary calls coming into the Service Desk during system failures to re-report the issue or request a status update, allowing them instead to concentrate on the normal steady stream of 'business as usual' queries.
Ticker Tape is especially useful where other more traditional means of communication - such as email - are unavailable due to outages and provides a single Administrator the means to quickly and cost-effectively keep thousands of users up-to-date with different issues across multiple offices. It's intuitive Administrator interface allows you to choose from a range of predefined messages, construct your own or control the behaviour of the Agent software and the messages displayed which can be set to expire automatically after a set time, include standard help text by default and indicate their criticality by colour.
The unlicensed version of Ticker Tape is functionally identical to the licensed version other than it is limited to managing the Agents on three individual Sites only, allowing you to try Ticker Tape in your environment for as long as you wish, completely free of charge. If you require support for additional Sites (up to 42 are catered for), there are a number of different cost-effective cumulative licenses available, allowing you to immediately extend the range of Sites managed - see below for licensing options.
