DeskAlerts Release New Infographic Revealing Secret To Increasing Employee Newsletter Engagement

(PRWEB) June 25, 2013

DeskAlerts is an innovative employee notification software which helps businesses to rethink their communication strategies to reduce loss and disinterest. In its new infographic, produced using data compiled from Executive Board, SHRM and Ragan, the corporate communications specialists have studied the most effective ways to increase the number of employees who actually read company newsletters.

The inforgraphic’s top tip is to cover news that interests the employee in the newsletter, rather than news that is about the company by default. Employees want to read content that means something to them, which calls for creative content writing that can link key business messages to employee activities, wellbeing and interests.

Its second top tip is to go digital to increase readership. The infographic confirms that many businesses are now choosing to deliver their newsletters electronically such as via email or online delivery rather than relying on printed methods of communication.

The third important point for business heads to consider is that two way communication can be a powerful motivator. It suggests adding a talk back section to the newsletter to encourage discussion.

Paula Jordan, Senior Lead Consultant said, “We know the importance of getting business critical information to the workforce as easily as possible and understand that for information to be of value, it must be received, read and digested by the recipient. Company newsletters are a vital communication channel and one that can be used in conjunction with other corporate communication methods such as our DeskAlterts desktop alerts service to deliver important information to key colleagues.”

DeskAlerts is a one-way, web-based alert notification system. It allows users to send alerts to specified recipients in the form of a pop-up window. The DeskAlerts software automatically tracks and stores alert activity with centralized storage for instant reporting upon user receipt.

About DeskAlerts: DeskAlerts is the only alert solution that works in technologically and geographically diverse networks. It is a completely web-based solution that can be used to send desktop alerts and news updates to any employee within your organization, improving communications and productivity with a more efficient communication strategy than traditional email alone.







Digital Signage Menu Boards Give An Edge To Food Outlets.

In an overcrowded fast food industry, outlets are looking for new, exciting and cost effective ways to market their products and digital signage displays are the answer.
Backlit menu boards traditionally used by most independent takeaway and fast food chains are being overshadowed by a new alluring means of displaying menus. Digital signage is now acknowledged as one of the most cost effective and stylish methods of displaying menus in food outlets all over the world. Digital displays, which are available in small and large sizes, offer numerous advantages over traditional static signage. Even when displaying static slides, digital displays attract more attention than traditional signage. This is combined with the facility to automatically show different menu slides at different times, on one screen, saving space and printing costs. Digital signage also has the capability to display movement on menu boards in the form of video files which are significantly more enticing than static images for customers.
Digital menu boards are being implemented by a wide range food outlets, from Burger King to Auntie Annes. Auntie Annes is a growing pretzel store franchise that are currently outfitting all theyre UK stores with 40 Digital Advertising Displays to upgrade from theyre current backlit menu board systems. So far they have found the digital signage solution to be extremely beneficial both in terms of usage and return. Not only have they seen improved sales and overall aesthetics of the locations, they have also been impressed with some of the features the digital displays provide. James MacIsaac, Operations Manager conveyed his delight with the scheduling software, included by AllSee Technologies, which allowed him to choose what he wanted to be displayed at what time of day, and for how long. The standalone units also have a plug and play function, this was requested so as the files can be easily loaded by staff. With the attention of the waiting customers fixed solely on the digital displays, he was able to manage what they were viewing, thus achieve his desired marketing impact.
With the advantages offered by digital signage to food outlets and the ever decreasing costs of LCD displays it is no surprise that more fast food chains, and independent retailers, are converting from backlit to digital menu boards.

AMX Now Shipping Alero 8 Zone Distributed Audio Power Amplifier

Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 11, 2014

HARMAN’s AMX announced at CEDIA EXPO 2014 the immediate global availability of its Alero 8 Zone Power Amplifier (ALR-AMP-8). Alero stands out as a top choice for end users and integrators by combining a stellar, multi-room residential distributed audio listening experience and a compact single rack unit (1RU) height, freeing up more rack space for increased installation options.

Whether listening to music in the living room, the kitchen or outdoors, Alero redefines multi-room distributed audio with 16 channels of audiophile quality sound. Featuring highly efficient, Class D amplifier technology, Alero also significantly reduces environmental impact by using less active power, using less standby power and requiring no external cooling sources to lower power consumption even further. And unlike linear power regulation used in Class AB amplifiers, Alero Class D amplification employs switching transistors, resulting in significantly less energy loss.

When designing Alero, AMX asked its integrators which features were most important to include and aside from top notch sound quality, the general consensus was for a smaller than typical footprint to make Alero ideal for installation in already overcrowded equipment racks. AMX researched the possibility and the result is Alero’s compact 1RU chassis that offers never-before-seen versatility and practically limitless installation options.

To ensure a completely unified, whole-home distributed audio source switching and amplification solution, Alero perfectly complements the AMX Precis DSP Distributed Audio Matrix Switcher. AMX is demonstrating the Alero Power Amplifier at the 2014 CEDIA EXPO, September 11 – 13 in HARMAN Booth #176.

The march of the Androids – Apple iPhone pushed into 4th place as Android models dominate online discussion according to social media research specialist DigitalMR

London (PRWEB) January 12, 2012

Social media research specialist DigitalMR releases latest findings on what customers are saying about smartphones on the internet.

DigitalMR analysed over ¼ million customer comments about smartphones across September-October 2011. Nearly two-thirds (62%) of these customer views are positive, compared with 38% negative.

Android models are the most mentioned smartphone brands. Samsung attracts the most mentions with a 30% market share of all positive comments and a 31% share of the smaller, negative comments group. Next placed is HTC with 22% positive mentions and 19% negative, followed by Motorola with 17% positive and 15% negative.

Together, the three Android brands account for two thirds (68%) of all measured online customer comments regarding smartphones.

Although Apple has fewer overall mentions it attracts more negative mentions than Motorola with a 17% share of all negative comments. This may well be related to customers experiencing teething problems when switching over to the new iOS operating system in October.

Results are based on comments posted by consumers on the major smartphone brands: Apple, Motorola, Samsung, RIM (Blackberry), HTC, LG, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Kyocera and HP across Sep-Oct 2011.

Established smartphone models from Apple and RIM (Blackberry) only account for 14% and 7% of total customer comments respectively.

DigitalMR’s analysis (powered by SocialNuggets) is based on comments posted via a range of relevant websites and open access social media platforms. It measures, not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also their sentiment – whether posts are positive or negative in nature.

Managing Director of DigitalMR, Michalis Michael commented: “The march of the Androids continues with their increased sales and market share gains being matched by consumers’ conversations online.”

All the brands measured, achieve a positive Net Sentiment Score (NSS) for Sep-Oct. NSS provides an overall percentage score of net positive posts.

The average NSS taken across all the brands measured is 24%. This shows customers are generally very happy with their devices and are sharing the good news online.

Of the three most talked about brands on the web, HTC had a NSS of 31%, followed by 29% for Motorola and a slightly below par score of 23% for Samsung.

The highest NSS is achieved by HP with 50% (although this is derived from a relatively small base number of mentions) followed by Nokia (47%) with the lowest NSS recorded by Sony Erickson (4%) and Apple (6%).

Features

DigitalMR measures thousands of customer posts regarding the services and features attributed to smartphones.

“Operating system” and “Service provider” features generate the most comments overall. “Operating system” attracted a 17% share of positive mentions which was outweighed by 28% share of negative ones. The next most mentioned feature “Service Provider” produced 23% positive vs 19% negative. “Body” – the design and shape of the handset – received far more positive comment than negative (20% share positive vs just 8% share of negative.

In their words – customer comments sample

Nokia

“excellent choice. It still remains Nokias best phone despite other models released after it. I have one, its the most amazing device and i know i’ll be keeping mine for years and years and with easy free updates for the next five years atleast, its a solid investment”.

http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20111015041838AAnjcKx

Apple

“Agreed! I do feel disappointed – I ordered on the 7th but my order still says processing. Every person I know who wanted a 4S now has one except me – the difference – I’m the only person to pre order directly from apple rather than turn up at a store or get one through my phone company! Seems pretty unfair really!!!!”.

DigitalMR Web Listening Report on Tablet PCs — Apple iPad Accounts for Nearly Half of Negative Customer Comments Online with 46% Share

(PRWEB) January 18, 2012

The overwhelming majority of customers are highly positive in their views on tablet PCs as expressed on the internet. Social media research specialist DigitalMR measured thousands of comments for slate devices across September-October 2011. Over two thirds (68%) of all views measured were positive with only 32% negative. Apple recorded a 33% share of all positive comments but more worryingly a 46% of the smaller pool of negative ones. Next placed is Amazon with 19% of positive mentions and only 13% of negative, followed by Samsung with 15% of positive mentions and 18% of negative ones.

The high percentage of negative Apple comments is likely to be related to problems that users faced in upgrading to Apple’s new iOS 5 software in October.

Results are based on comments posted by consumers on the major tablet models made by: Apple, Motorola, Samsung, Blackberry, HTC, LG, HP, ASUS, Sony and Amazon across September-October 2011.

It measures, not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also their sentiment – whether posts are positive or negative in nature.

The free upgrade caused a spike in demand, leading many users to complain on forums that they kept getting error messages and that the download was taking too long.”

All the brands measured, achieve a positive Net Sentiment Score (NSS) for Sep-Oct. NSS provides an overall percentage score of net positive posts. A positive score means a tablet attracts a higher proportion of positive than negative posts.

The average NSS taken across all brands measured is 36% which is very high compared with other industry sectors. This is good news for the tablet industry as it shows that generally customers and very satisfied with their products and are happy to spread the word online.

However Apple achieves the lowest NSS of 21%, just below Motorola with 22%. The best NSS scores are achieved by newer entrants to the market achieve. Sony is top with 87% (although this is based on a relatively low number of mentions overall) followed by Asus with 73%.

DigitalMR measured thousands of customer posts across Sep-Oct regarding the features that tablets offer. The most talked about features (both positively and negatively) are “operating system” (18% share of positive comments vs 30% negative) and “application” (20% positive vs 21% negative).

Sony:

“I have been using my Sony Tablet S for a couple of days and it’s awesome”.

Motorola:

“This morning is the second time that my Motorola Xoom has frozen up on me since I received it back from Motorola after the 4G LTE upgrade. Has anyone else had problems with this? I never had any problems whatsoever with this tablet prior to the upgrade”.

https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/60568

Apple:

“I agree with previous two reviewers – IPAD that worked perfectly, now doesn’t work at all since upgrade, a total waste of money. More than the money, disappointment at being unable to send photos home to loved ones.

Merritt Graphics Adds Revolutionary New Dye-sublimation Printer to Its Line-up

East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) September 10, 2014

Digital textile printing is a growing opportunity for wide-format applications. It is quickly transforming the world of display graphics in the exhibit, POP, and retail market segments and continues to revolutionize the print industry. Fabrics are lightweight, environmentally friendly, easily transported, and the applications are virtually endless. These characteristics contribute to fabric graphics placing second in The Wide Format Imaging “2014 Top 40 Shops Top 10 Growth” segments.

Merritt Graphics of East Hartford, CT waited for the right opportunity to break into the digital textile printing industry. “We wanted to bide our time and watch the market,” said Ed Perry, President and CEO. “Another consideration was waiting to find the machine that felt like a perfect fit for our purposes.” Merritt Graphics recently decided that the time was right and just finished installing a new PrinterEvolution Eos126 DS dye-sublimation printer.

The PrinterEvolution Eos126 DS dye-sublimation printer is the first printer of its kind in the United States. It revolutionizes dye-sublimation printing into a one-step process with true on-board sublimation. The Eos126 DS can achieve 24-hour-per-day production demands with high speeds, beautiful color, and industrial reliability.

Merritt required a printer that would not only exceed their clients’ demands for quality and quantity but also sustainability. The Eos126 DS is environmentally friendly. It uses water-based inks and passes all Oeko-tex® Standard 100 certifications, functioning with a very small footprint and low electrical requirements. This is especially cost effective compared to systems utilizing a separate sublimation calender, which requires a larger footprint and hood extraction built into the roofing system. Additionally, the Eos126 DS print heads are true grayscale versadrop, meaning 30-50% less ink is used compared to printers using binary drop print heads.

To add to its fabric-finishing services, Merritt Graphics also purchased an Impulsa Sewing System. This specialty industrial sewing machine has a 3-meter (10′) long automated conveyor table that moves the material along the bed in synchronization with the Auto Keder (or Silicon Edge Graphics [SEG]) attachment. It has a patented ATAS system that provides stress-free feeding of the SEG and automated cutting of the SEG to avoid tension or stretch on the fabrics while the SEG is being sewn in.

According to a 2014 report by InfoTrends, 81.3% of the wide-format printers surveyed have seen significant growth in textiles as a percentage of their business. Perry submits, “Clients are looking for fabric prints, not only for tablecloths and tradeshow exhibits, but to replace indoor backlit films or rigid signage. We have seen an increase in the need for quick change fabric signs, and the SEG backing provides for a simple installation by anyone.”

About Merritt Graphics:

Merritt Graphics Big Color of East Hartford, CT is the grand-format printing division of Joseph Merritt Company, headquartered in nearby Hartford, CT. The company currently serves national markets including: Out of Home and Transit, POP, Indoor & Retail graphics, Vehicle graphics, Event Exhibit & Venue graphics, Environmental graphics, and Custom Sign fabrication. Merritt Graphics uses advanced printing technologies and sources quality substrates to consistently deliver high-end results. Merritt is certified by 3M to offer the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty for delivering finished graphics that meet 3M’s exacting requirements. This certification is not required by 3M, but demonstrates Merritt’s commitment to excellence.
