If you provide SaaS Online services then your business depends on keeping yourself & your customers informed about downtime. Statusy will keep track of issues related to downtime, caused by bugs, server crashes, DDoS attacks… & users will be sent to a hosted status page to inform them of the situation.
Statusy lets you customize your list of company provided services, & present a status page in keeping with your own branding & design. Using their API you can make it so customers will be redirected to the Statusy hosted status page whenever something bad happens.
If you have planned maintenance downtime or just discovered that 1 of your servers is down, you can publish the incident on your Statusy status page. Your customers will automatically be notified via social media or email.
Whenever unforeseen circumstances take your services down, you can just launch the status page, which is hosted independently by Statusy, while you concentrate on fixing your problems at hand. Most of your customers will appreciate the transparency & understand that sometimes services can be down, but not keeping them informed in a timely manner is inexcusable.
