Desktop Ticker Tape
Communicate effectively with CLAs Desktop ticker tape module
The Desktop Ticker Tape is an effective communications module designed to create awareness though the repeated displaying of text messages scrolling at the bottom of the screen. The way in which a ticker tape is presented is similar to how scrolling text headlines appear on news bulletins when displaying share prices, breaking news or weather predictions. In a corporate environment, the typical uses of Desktop Ticker Tapes include making announcements such as wishing members of staff a happy birthday, announcing significant work anniversaries or the inauguration of a new board member. Cultural uses of Desktop Ticker Tapes include enforcing company values by publishing stories through ticker tapes reminding staff what each value means, what it stands for and examples of how one should conduct oneself to conform with each value. The look and feel of the Desktop Ticker Tape can be customised to adhere to the Corporate Identity of the company. The logo that displays on the bottom left corner can be changed, as well as the specific background colour, the font, font size, font colour and capitalisation. The correct configurations of these settings will ensure that the look of a ticker tape conforms to the requirements of the brand police!
Desktop Ticker Tapes are able to launch in 2 different modes, either with the screensaver, or independently. If the ticker tape launches independently, it docks itself above the task bar, and always appears as the top-most window. No matter what application is open, the ticker will appear on top of all the windows, but above the taskbar so that applications can be accessed. If the ticker tape happens to be in the way of an active window, the ability to MINIMISE or CLOSE the ticker tape is always available. When the Desktop Ticker Tape launches independently in this manner, it is interactive and can be configured to hyperlink to any document type (such as WORD, POWERPOINT, EXCEL or PDF), intranet articles, video clips, policies, surveys, newsletters or websites.
Ensure the message is heard with our fully customizable Desktop ticker tape tool
Instead, if the Desktop Ticker Tape launches with the screensaver, the content displaying through the screensaver zooms slightly to accommodate the ticker tape in the bottom-most section of the screen, and these ticker tapes are not interactive. Interactive Desktop Ticker Tape can be configured to push to different people depending on the department they belong to, the regional office they are located at, or any other logical segmentation that may be needed. All interactions with Desktop Ticker Tapes are also fully tracked and measured, which means that the delivery and activation of every attachment linked to every ticker tape is measurable and reportable for purposes of compliance and accountability.
