'Digital Signage Dashboard' for Continuous and Effective Companywide Communication of Numbers and Graphs

Netpresenter Newsfeed Server v2 automatically updates staff by bringing Excel data to PC and large screens

New York, February 3, 2009 - Netpresenter, communication software vendor and the company behind AMBER Alert Netherlands, introduces the 2nd version of its Newsfeed Server. This software solution simplifies the process of keeping staff updated on crucial (corporate) information. The most important headlines from the Web and internal websites, as well as information from Sharepoint and now also Excel files can be brought to the attention of employees. Automatically publishing the data on all screens: as a PC screensaver, desktop presentation or pop up alert message published directly on all PC monitors, but also on kiosks and large screens (Digital Signage). The dashboard functionality allows companies to keep everyone informed of for example sales statistics, production figures, quotes, quotations and graphs - in real time, all the time.

"With Newsfeed Server v2 effective internal communication does not have to cost any time at all. All the major news - from the internet, internal website, Sharepoint portal and now also Excel files - can be automatically displayed on all large Plasma & LCD screens, kiosks or PC screens. The ideal way to reach employees quickly, without interrupting the work process," says Frank Hoen, Netpresenter CEO.

"Everyone knows 'e-mails to all' are disrupting and are not very well read. To prevent having to send to many of these productivity killers, companies often have an internal website. Unfortunately most employees forget to regularly check these internal websites. But some news needs to be seen by all, immediately. Especially when the news is critical to your business. Take news on new regulation or product recalls for instance. And how about internal stats on sales and customer calls - very important to foster interdepartemental interest and to strengthen commitment to the company, which is in turn important because committed staff performs better and is more likely to stay with the company. In the majority of the companies, this information is locked in hard to access Excel files. With Netpresenter Newsfeed Server v2, companies can automatically communicate continuously updated information from Excel files to all employees - numbers and stats, but also graphs and charts," explains Hoen.

Apart from the Excel feature, allowing automatic publication of Excel files, Netpresenter has implemented a number of bandwidth saving measures in the new Newsfeed Server and improved the user interface following user feedback.
