Our secret is out…we use Snagit!

Snagit is an invaluable tool for the policyIQ Team!

Made by TechSmith, Snagit is a software application that gives you the ability to take a snapshot of all or a portion of your screen. The functionality goes well beyond the snapshot that you take—you’re also able to edit that image, add highlights, arrows, speech bubbles, and many other effects!

The policyIQ team uses Snagit to capture images so that we can more reliably communicate to each other and to you, our policyIQ users.  We use Snagit to explain how to carry out different actions, how to find functions within the application, or how to find supporting documentation in your policyIQ Help guide, for example.

Here are just a few examples of the images we’ve recently captured and edited using Snagit!

We recently sent this image to a client to communicate which policyIQ on-demand training sessions we would recommend for a new user:

Take a look at the March newsletter (due out this Thursday): notice that its raining risks down on our ERM umbrella! I created the “Risk Raindrops” and this image for our newsletter using Snagit:

I used this image to direct a policyIQ user to the Excel Import spreadsheet and relative policyIQ Help pages:

We use and brag about TechSmith products so much that we should probably be on their payroll! We’re not, by the way, so you can rest assured that this testimony is completely unbiased…although, in the interest of full disclosure, one of our team members does have an “I *heart* Snagit!” button on her desk.

If you’d like to try Snagit for yourself, check out their site. I noticed that they have a free trial opportunity!
