SNAP COMES TO JAMAICA - September 01,2007

Snap - New Software Technology Comes to Jamaica

RO Communications has been appointed the Exclusive Distributor in Jamaica of a new software 'Snap Tools' geared for internal communicators.

Snap is an international company that specializes in internal communications and finding cost-effective solutions for these issues. Snap Communications have created and successfully marketed a web-based software solution complete with tools for companies whose employees access their information through personal computers. ‘Snap’ communication pushes information out to staff at times when they are most receptive and at times that suit their workflow.

What are the tools? They are simple: screen savers; pop-up alerts; tickers; quizzes; surveys and internal magazines. You can, for example, eliminate staff e-mails by putting content in the ‘Snap’ magazine which is easily created and managed using their web-based interface.

The ‘Snap’ solution is hosted and managed remotely and the members of your communications team go to the website and log on with a password and can set up their internal communication tools using the content manager. Content is then delivered to specified users within the organizations through communication over the internet and in order to receive content the user must have the tool installed on their computer. It is a small program,(approximately 1.6M) whose sole purpose is to display and manage content directed to it. The content consists of any of the tools customized with text, display style, animation, images etc. to display the appropriate messages as specified by the content manager. Content is created by administrator(s) within their own network (presumed to be safe and secure).

Low IT risk

Content is delivered as internet traffic (http and https), hence the risk of content transmitting a virus or other internet nasty is very low. The Snap Client, located on the users computer, initiates communication with the Snap Server located with the Snap data centre – the return communication back to the Snap Client has therefore originated from a ‘trusted source’ – the users own computer .There is typically no requirement for existing firewall rules to be altered.
