Does anyone know any decent software that will allow certain staff to send out broadcast messages (e.g. 'Please inform reception of any visitors') to all the other staff?
Ideally with some sort of Active Directory integration and the facility to send out the same 'daily' messages once a day but also allow one off messages to be sent.
Hope this makes sense?! I've seen it in another place in the past, think it was from their MIS system?
There should be a section on your MIS to do this, look for something like noticeboard or alerts.
We have a 'shout box' on our SharePoint site (which serves as a staff internal homepage) - allows staff to post any random messages they want up there.
Theres also a offical notices box for more important things.

Theres also a jquery notifications system you can use on Sharepoint. Handy thing is you can track who has marked it as read as well.
We use this. Exceptionally effective!
ACEmessage:* Desktop Alert One Way Messaging Notification
Very reasonably priced too!

Considering how many staff use their phones - Facebook or Twitter?
It's about the one thing they will, without fail, check!
Read an Email pah! Check their FB / Twitter accounts on a regular basis - you bet!
We are going to look into Lync to do this sort of task.
