IT Administrators unlock the potential of your existing Microsoft Lync® or OCS® implementations with psIMAlerts : a Powershell ® CmdLet to send bulk IM Alerts.

Get that important corporate, financial or IT message to all or selected staff easily and professionally with more than 12 rich message templates included: “Email Outage”, "Winning", "Success", "UpAndUp" and “Halt”. Generate additional custom message templates with your favorite HTML Editor (like Microsoft Word® or Adobe Dreamweaver®). Here are some examples:

A Corporate Announcement with the “Winning” template

Corporate Newsflash with the “Halt” template

 

Financial Newsflash with the “UpAndUp” template

IT Alert with the “Email Outage” template

 

The Powershell® to send an IM Newsflash can be as simple as a single line like:

PS C:\\> Send-Alert -Identity fredN -SubjectLine "Test Message" –MessageHtmlTemplateFName "Success"   -HtmlMessageText "This is a test message sent by psIMAlerts by Blue Quality Studios"  
Datetime                ResponseCode          Uri
