Learn how Squadcast helped Scoro to create a solid foundation for better on-call practices

By making Squadcast the central piece of our incident management, we were able to implement numerous best practices and in that process, we learned to clearly distinguish between Incidents and Alerts. Incidents that are critical and need to be handled right away, and Alerts, which are something to look at, but not very urgently. By using this centralized tool we were able to surface the actual problem that was affecting our customers.

Scoro is an end-to-end work management solution that lets organizations manage their business workflows from a single location. It aids in the elimination of routine business tasks like billing and reporting, to ensure that a business runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

As the business was growing, Scoro’s on-call team relaized that their current ad-hoc processes werent effective. There was a need to set up scalable processes in their on-call practices. Thus, Squadcast’s features centered around On-call alerting and SRE provided the much-needed skeleton for Scoro to scale their on-call processes efficiently.

Challenges and Solutions
Challenges
Solutions

Need for centralized on-call scheduling & rotations: The lack of a formal tool for scheduling on-call rotations meant there was a lack of clarity & ownership within their on-call structure.

Centralized On-call scheduling & rotations: By centralizing schedules & rotations within one platform in Squadcast, Scoro was able to streamline on-call by bringing visibility & a much-needed sense of ownership to teams within the process.

Lack of a centralized incident dashboard: Before using Squadcast, critical alerts from monitoring tools were sent only via email. This cluttered their inbox and made it difficult to track incidents.

Centralized incident management: After integrating Squadcast into their on-call process, alerts are now centralized, making it easy to track incidents and notify the respective teams.

Complexity involving alert routing: Scoro is made up of different teams overseeing their App, infrastructure, and customer support. Routing & assigning alert notifications to the right person was an ongoing challenge.

Effective routing & incident notifications: By routing incident notifications via Squadcast, they are now able to schedule different on-call teams for different domain areas. Issues related to their app, infrastructure, and their product are routed to the respective on-call teams.

Not using ChatOps for incident response: Despite using Slack internally for collaboration, they were not leveraging its full potential for incident management.

Slack + Squadcast integration: By integrating Slack with Squadcast, Scoro was able to leverage it not only for collaboration and incident response but could also acknowledge, resolve and reassign alert notifications from within Slack.
