Learn how Endeavor Communications, an award-winning rural co-op telecom company, moved from multiple proprietary IT status tools to using StatusCast’s state of the art status page solution to communicate IT uptime and issues with over 9,000 customers.
Endeavor Communications started in 1950 as the Clay County Rural Telephone Cooperative, which was incorporated to provide telephone service to small towns and rural areas in Indiana.

As the evaluation team compared the benefits of providers on its shortlist, it found that StatusCast was easy to implement, and the dashboard was super simple to customize.
