StatusCast allows companies to quickly and easily publish and proactively communicate application downtime and scheduled maintenance events to employees and end-users. Companies that deploy a Corporate Status Page, can keep employees continually notified about IT incidents by composing “end-user oriented” incident reports which can be proactively sent via e-mail, text messaging, and other channels. A Corporate Status Page dramatically reduces inbound help-desk tickets and become the de-facto “go to place” when someone wants to know whether their applications are up and running.Making incident notification a streamlined step of your organization’s process for handling application downtime is an industry standard best practice. StatusCast integrates with several leading IT managed applications to further automate the process. By integrating your Corporate Status Page into an existing application monitoring and performance management tool, incident creation and communication can be further enhanced and optimized.
