Live Agent notifications / push notifications


We are new to Live Agent and our number one user complaint is that the chat notifications are too easy to miss.
The notification sound is pretty quiet (especially in a busy contact centre) and the on screen notification is not peristant.

My questions are:
Has anyone else had this issue and if so how did you address it?
Has anyone used / developed a desktop "push" notification to alert the agent to a new chat / response to a chat?

You can use solution as below:

1) create a visualforce page (code bellow)
2) create a console component hidden with this visual force page
3) add the component to console. 
4) allow the visualforce page to profile
5) add to chrome notification enable for following domaine (because component are inside iframe)
<apex:page >
    <apex:includeScript value="/support/console/45.0/integration.js"/>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
        if (!Notification) {
            alert('Desktop notifications not available in your browser. Contact Administrator');
        if (Notification.permission !== "granted") {
        } (result) {
            var notification = new Notification('Chat requested', {
                body: "CUSTOMER CHAT INCOMMING !"
            notification.onclick = function() {
        sforce.console.addEventListener( sforce.console.ConsoleEvent.PRESENCE.WORK_ASSIGNED	, function (result) {
            var notification = new Notification('Chat requested2', {
                body: "CUSTOMER CHAT INCOMMING2 !"
            notification.onclick = function() {
