Talk2Us expands exclusive Reseller Agreement to rest of Africa
Talk2Us has expanded its exclusive reseller agreement for SnapComms to cover the whole of Africa. Digital brand management tools - such as screensaver messages, desktop newsfeeds and staff quizzes – are in high demand across the continent, and Talk2Us is now able to offer them to all African nations.
Johannesburg, South Africa – 07 February 2012 – With effect from 01 February 2012, Johannesburg-based brand engagement consultancy, Talk2Us extended its exclusive reseller agreement with SnapComms to cover all African countries. In November 2011, the company negotiated an exclusive deal to offer internal digital brand management tools - such as screensaver messages, desktop newsfeeds and staff quizzes – to southern African and the Islands.
Due to an unprecedented demand for the offering by leading blue-chip national and multinational organisations, and an influx of queries from across Africa, a geographical extension was signed.
The software solution includes several tools which show messages directly on employees’ computer screens. The solution uses existing Active Directory groups for targeting purposes, an important element of strategic stakeholder mapping. A key benefit is the tool’s flexibility in content administration and targeted messaging, affording large decentralised organisations the opportunity to partner and collaborate across clusters and functions.
In line with global trends, internal communication is shifting from a broadcast-centric approach to a strategic tool that delivers employee engagement and can be tangibly measured, providing real business benefits that support company strategy. The SnapComms tool is one such mechanism that achieves this by bypassing traditional media and reaching employees timeously with priority news in the business.
The SnapComms internal communications software was created in 2002, seeking better ways to communicate to employees. Since then, it has developed into a full suite of tools designed to overcome challenges faced by internal communicators in medium and large organisations. SnapComms solutions are currently being used in some of the world’s largest multinationals, including Vodafone, Time Warner, Netcare, BP, Hewlett Packard, Ericsson, Commercial Bank of Africa, KPMG Russia, South Africa Broadcasting Corporation, Cisco, and others.
