Digital Memo sends one-way messages

Under certain circumstances, managers might want to send employees a message without giving them the option to reply. That's the idea behind Digital Memo, a messaging product for Windows announced this week by Popuload Software.

Digital Memo distributes messages to employees without enabling the dialogue that e-mail does.

'There are times when a message is better-suited to be communicated one-way to the employee, rather than the current office standards, such as e-mail and other two-way communication methods, that allow for an open dialogue,' said Alex Furness, Popuload Software's founder.

Digital Memo integrates the RSS feed distributed with a manager's blog, notifying anyone who has the Digital Memo Reader installed of each new blog post. Managers are thus using their blogs as a tool to send memos digitally, company representatives said.

The software sells for $195 for one corporate license. Each license allows for the distribution of one blog to an unlimited number of users throughout the organization.
