NetSupport Notify - 500 User (NSN500PK) Product Details
NetSupport Notify is a specially developed solution allowing instant and reliable delivery of notifications and alerts across a LAN or WAN to Windows, Mac and Linux desktops.
The philosophy of NetSupport Notify is to provide a simple and effective solution to allow administrators within an organisation to reliably deliver key notifications to all users across an enterprise without concern for network topology and to provide accurate records of message delivery and acknowledgement.
Unlike typical LAN-based messaging solutions, NetSupport Notify provides a dedicated local notification gateway(s) that allow seamless message delivery across multiple network segments or dispersed sites without the need for network modifications or switch configuration. A true mass notification system.
Why Desktop Notification ?
NetSupport Notify cuts through the distractions to communicate directly and immediately with users.
NetSupport Notify is a high impact and scalable solution, requiring no external servers or subscriptions, that allows an organisation to deliver internal messaging guaranteed to grab attention. As a solution specifically designed to deliver one-way alerts and notifications that cannot be skipped, ignored or saved for later, NetSupport Notify offers many advantages over traditional methods of communication.
Instant Messaging, e-mail, internal Intranets and RSS feeds are all passive forms of communication that rely solely on the user to look for and read information...when they choose. NetSupport Notify delivers the information instantly and ensures the user's attention is gained. It is impractical and costly to attempt to contact all users by phone with news or alerts, e-mail does not ensure any level of immediacy and news feeds are only useful if users are actively looking for information. NetSupport Notify offers the only direct, instant-contact, mass communication method....offering instant delivery to all or specific groups of users.
Simple to use, fast and reliable, NetSupport Notify is the perfect choice for messaging and alerting across a LAN or WAN. Easy to implement and utilise, alerts carrying varying priorities, customisations and delivery options can be delivered in seconds across the enterprise.

NetSupport Notify also provides an interface for integration with existing systems.
NetSupport Notify is based around its unique Notification Server technology. Installed on any Windows 2000, 2003, XP or Vista desktop or Windows 2000 / 2003 / 2008 Server, the Notification Server manages connections to all desktop agents and ensures immediate delivery of all alerts. NetSupport Notify also includes redundancy, allowing multiple Notification Servers to be implemented and ensuring if that one is unavailable at any time, agent connections will automatically switch to the next available server. You can use as many notification servers as you want and they are included for free in the standard licence cost.
The Notification Server also controls all agent and console connections and authenticates these against unique user defined accounts and security keys, ensuring the system is only used by authorised staff. Use of NetSupport Notify can also be controlled via Active Directory policies.
