Learn how Tv-Insight established a mature & resilient On-Call process by leveraging Squadcast’s instant alert notifications

Before Squadcast, we always struggled to keep track of notifications and understand the severity of alerts. The inconsistency and delayed response not only hurt us but also impacted our customers. However, since we began using Squadcast's platform, we now have a well-structured incident response procedure in place.

Squadcast's app, phone calls, and SMS notifications, along with on-call schedules, enable us to react quickly to any incident. The DataDog webhook integration has made it easy to integrate our existing alert sources. The platform's structured approach to organizing services and incidents has helped us create a more efficient incident handling procedure and response plan.

Thanks to Squadcast, we can now react to incidents faster and with better quality. The clear on-call schedule ensures that it is always apparent who is responsible for making a triage decision on occurred alerts. With a comprehensive view of ongoing and resolved issues, we can continuously improve our service quality and processes.

About
Tv-Insight
Industry:  
TV Measurement & Advertising

TV-Insight developed a solution to measure TV viewership in real time and provide live as well as historic metrics for advanced TV research. They also offer an integration for TV channels to serve best-fit advertisement campaigns based on the live socio-demographic reach.
