At Creighton University we are using, and quite happy with, Blackboard Connect for our emergency notification system.  Our Crisis Committee would like to have us add a desktop alerting product to the existing system.  The  Alertus Desktop product looks like a good solution and they offer a grant program so schools can receive their product for free.  Is anyone using the Alertus Desktop product,  how do you like it, does it integrate well into other non-Alertus notification systems, was it easy to deploy, and have you found the product to work well?
