  • There is lots of clear evidence that shows that companies with effective internal communications perform significantly better. Other examples include: “ There is an empirical link between employee commitment, customer satisfaction and an increase in sales. Analysis of data from 65,000 employees and 25,000 customers showed that a one point increase in employee commitment (on a five point scale) represents a 9% increase in monthly sales.” Watson Wyatt Work USA 2002 Survey “ A significant improvement in communication effectiveness is associated with a 29.5% increase in market value ” Fortune magazine
  • What are the key components to the Snap hosted solution? “ The Platform” and “The “Content Manager” The Snap solution is hosted and managed remotely. A good comparison is internet banking. With internet banking, after logging on with a user name and password, it is then possible to set up tools (such as automatic payments to people etc). In a similar way, “Snap Administrators” (e.g. nominated member(s) of the Internal Communications team with a company) go to the Snap website, logon with a user name and password, and can then set up their internal communications tools or “Content” (screen savers, tickers, alerts, quizzes, surveys, electronic magazines). “Content” is then delivered to specified “Users” within their organization via communication with the “Snap Client” over the Internet. “ The Client” In order to receive “Content” a “User” must have the “Snap Client” installed on their computer. The Snap Client is a small program (approx. 1.6M) whose sole purpose is to display and manage “Content” directed to it. The “Content” “ Content” consists of any of the snap tools (screen savers, tickers, alerts, quizzes, surveys, electronic magazines) customized (with text, display style, flash animation, images etc) to display the appropriate messages as specified by the “Content Manager”.
