CrossTec VueAlert™, Instant Desktop Alerting System

CrossTec VueAlert™ Offers Instant Delivery of Notifications Across a LAN or WAN to Windows and Mac Desktops

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - CrossTec Corporation announced today the release of the new CrossTec VueAlert™ instant desktop alerting system. CrossTec VueAlert provides a simple means for administrators to reliably deliver alerts and important notifications to staff and pupils. Messages can be sent across an enterprise to both Mac and Windows desktops without the need for network modifications or switch configuration. Hence, CrossTec VueAlert can be installed and operational in a matter of minutes, saving valuable IT administrators time and effort.

"School leaders and business leaders are re-evaluating their emergency plans and procedures, and experts agree that having a quick and coordinated means of communicating is a key element of such plans. Most students are required to turn off their cell phones in class, and many employees also turn off cell phones when working, making a text message solution impractical for every situation," according to Turner Dean, CrossTec Sales Manager. He goes on to say, "When time matters, CrossTec VueAlert will instantly deliver your message to those who need it."

CrossTec VueAlert lets an administrator send a clear and concise message to all connected computers. These messages can be prioritized by severity and a reply can be requested. The alert message automatically pops up on the student or employee screen and can also have an accompanying audible alert. The administrator's system logs date and time of sent messages, thus ensuring that that the messages were received and that no further attempts to notify those individuals is necessary.

CrossTec VueAlert delivers a low-cost, high speed notifications system for organizations looking for a backup for failures, such as e-mail, and a tool for delivering staff alerts and guidance. VueAlert's advantage is the fact that the delivery is 100% internal, there is no reliance on the Internet or outside servers, and delivery is confirmed. A notification, as mundane as "the file server is experiencing difficulties" can be sent out to all.

CrossTec VueAlert will be showcased at the Florida Educational Technology Conference, January 21-25, 2008 in Orlando, Florida; the Texas Computer Education Association 2008 Convention and Exposition, February 4-8, 2008 in Austin, Texas; and The League for Innovation in the Community College, Innovations Conference, March 2-5, 2008 in Denver, Colorado.
