Ticker Tape is a simple way to 'broadcast' unobtrusive, yet highly visible, messages to workstations spread over one or more Sites, allowing users to be kept up-to-date without affecting their work.
It's ideal for Help 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 unneccessary calls coming into the Help 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 pre-defined 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.
This license key option allows you to license the free version of Ticker Tape (that's limited to managing just 3 Sites normally) so that Agents on up to 7 Sites can be managed. Installation is as simple as pasting the received license key into your currently installed version of Ticker Tape to immediately enable the additional sites.
