When IT fails, business operations are at risk and impacted customers become frustrated.
To minimize the impact of IT system downtime, you need to ensure that the right IT staff is engaged as quickly as possible, that the stakeholders stay informed and impacted customers are notified.
Using manual processes to identify the teams and the individuals responsible for responding to an IT outage is inefficient and time-consuming which increases the time to service restoration
The ability to accelerate on-call staff response to unplanned IT issues helps organizations restore services within their service level agreements. IT Alerting calendar and shift management keep staff on-call schedules up to date and automatically determine who's on-call (primary and backup), and who to escalate to should that be needed.
We use Everbridge IT Alerting first and foremost as a way of contacting on-call personnel when emergency pages come into the system, or when temperature alerts are generated. Our organization also leverages the multiple delivery paths and send messages to different audiences based on rules. We have always received excellent support from Everbridge.
Everbridge IT Alerting notifes internal stakeholders, and they respond, with ‘I’ve got it handled.’ The issue is then resolved, and nobody knows anything happened… The Everbridge brand is trusted. The beauty of IT Alerting is having a consistent, predictable, repeatable process with timely and relevant communications. And Everbridge facilitates every single piece of that.
Multi Messages, Multi Channel
Companies that rely on emails to contact people, quickly realize that emails don't wake up anybody in the middle of the night.This causes delays and lack of ownership, increases the number of frustrated customers and can potentially aggravate the original situation. Under these chaotic circumstances, proactive communication to stakeholders and impacted users is just not even considered.
When an IT issue strikes, companies must communicate with different groups of people in a timely manner and a consistent way. Targeted Notifications enables you to automatically identify and contact the right IT staff via multiple communication paths simultaneously.
When every minute counts, it can be challenging to engage all response team members in different locations, countries and time zones.
Manually sending out conference bridge dial-in information is time consuming, reduces the team efficiency and therefore increases the duration of the outage.
