Using SEND

Unscheduled Outages is just one example:

  • Notifies users and blocks applications from being launched during an outage, stopping support calls and slashing peer support
  • Updates keep the affected users informed during outages, reducing user frustration.
  • Alerts all affected users as soon as the application is available for use, minimising the impact of the outage on productivity.

Not only can SEND communicate exclusively with those users affected by an outage and remove forever the need to manually update large distribution lists, it has multiple other benefits over email, that are designed to save you time, money and increase productivity.
