  Nobix Alert  (Desktop Pop-Up Alerting)

Reliable, immediate messaging to your network's desktops.

Alerts that cannot be ignored.

Nobix Alert software allows you to send messages directly to your company desktops. Pop-up message boxes appear with your messages and your user's responses are logged. Send a message to one desktop, users in a distribution list, or broadcast to all. You may also integrate it with your applications for an automated message delivery solution.

(roll your mouse over for a description)

It's a simple system. Simple to install, simple to use, inexpensive, and it will have a dramatic, positive effect on your company internal communications.

Your employees receive alert messages almost instantly with just a few clicks from you, or automatically from your software and hardware systems.


Email is too easy to ignore, and uses resources and filters that can't guarantee arrival and immediate display in front of your people.

Nobix Alert software uses few resources, doesn't filter your message, and puts a pop-up right in the middle of their display that can't be ignored -- especially if you send an audible notification of your choosing. All this, less than a moment after you press a button.

You can send messages from the Alert Server's Messaging Interface, as well as build the command line program into your applications, scripts, email systems, etc. Send messages directly from your applications to your desktops. You have full control over recipients and distribution lists. Both HTML and plain text are supported in the display.

Alert is your best solution for immediate communication to your staff, with messages that cannot be ignored.

Once the message box pops up on their display, the user can either choose to acknowledge the message, or overtly ignore it. Either way, their response is logged on the Nobix Alert server.

This software is so easy to install and use. The user's desktop installation takes just a few moments, can be remotely installed from the Alert server, and requires no interaction on the part of the user. The Alert server is normally installed in just a few minutes. No special "extra" software is required. Everything you need is in the download.

  • Send a message
