About Endeavor Communications

Today, Endeavor serves approximately 9,000 members with services that span High Speed Internet, Television, IT Services, Security Solutions, Business Phone Solutions, and Wireless.
Standardizing on an Industry Leading Status Page Platform
Endeavor initially built its own custom tools for managing and reporting IT issues. These tools were effective in responding to outages, but with the growth of the company, Endeavor needed a more proactive way to communicate IT uptime and issues with its large customer base.
Why They Chose StatusCast
When Endeavor began their search, they looked at several status page tools from leading providers. 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. This was critical for Endeavor because they planned to leverage a status page solution for three areas of their business.
What tipped the scale in StatusCast’s favor was its integration with social media platforms. The ability to have an IT status update post automatically to a status page as well as social media platforms was a huge selling point. In addition. Endeavor noted that StatusCast’s sales and technical support are great, providing personalized service.
