  4. Comments are not needed. No fear for sending an announcement again!

Why types of organizations benefit from Blastcast?

We find organizations with 50 or more people who are spread across various timezones and start to naturally "silo" will find this keeps the silo-effect from happening. Companies with thousands of employees will find Blastcast keeps them abreast of high-level news and events.

How much does it cost?

Blastcast is $3 per seat, per month. Please contact us if you are a school, church, or non-profit organization. We want to see how Blastcast can work for you and have an extended trial until you see value in Blastcast.

Are the Blasts public?

Nope. The announcements you send in Blastcast are not seen by anyone else outside your organization account. The Blasts are intended for the company recipient list. Since HR sets up Blastcast, we make sure the Blasts are going to the employees they setup.

Are there “Safe for Work” filters?

Yes, the memes have been filtered so the Not Safe For Work (NSFW) images do not show up. We can’t control the content from the API so a few may sneak in but they will be flagged right away. We cannot control what is posted by individuals from their phones.

How do I send a Blast?

  1. Before you send an "All Company" message go to Blastcast
  2. Click the + icon
  3. Choose a category
  4. Write your message and tag others for recognition
  5. Pick an image or upload one
  6. Send and watch the read rate percentage go up instantly

What happens if I miss some of the announcements?

Don’t worry if you went on vacation. When you get back, the Blastcast inbox will show what you missed. It will be a great way to see what happened at the company without doing the old department shakedown.

Are there rules to Blastcast?

  1. Be respectful
  2. Blast when people can see it
  3. Please Blast responsibly!
