The team is now equipped with better Incident Management process to restore services in the event of an interruption or unplanned downtime with Squadcast. Covering the entire lifecycle of the incident - from incident trigger to post-incident reviews and postmortems, helps improve their dynamic and constantly evolving systems & architectures.

With their multiple alert sources per service feature, we were able to to duplicate similar events and tag incidents across all active integrations in a service. Their support has been phenomenal, from our Jira customized set up to helping us adapt better incident management practices with their deduplication and routing rules.

Comprehensive Reporting

A single system health dashboard with configured SLOs helps us to track SLO breaches and comprehensive MTTA/MTTR reports allows to measure and improve the velocity at which the team is resolving incidents
For a growing company like ours, Squadcast freemium helped us adopt SRE best practices at scale and we haven't missed a single alert. The game changer was the alert forwarding feature which helped us override our manual  process prior to Squadcast’s implementation. Using Squadcast really helped us track our SLAs promised to various customers. We noticed that our ack and resolution times went down significantly.
