Challenges and Solutions
Challenges
Poor On-Call Management: Their call center model for handling incidents was rather inefficient due to the lag between incident discovery and acknowledgement, leading to an increase in MTTR
No Escalations: Current incident management process did not provide room to set up escalation policies when an incident was unacknowledged, leading to increase in MTTA
Manual Alert Forwarding: Previous solution was not scalable when critical alerts had to be forwarded when the on call person was off duty

What our customers have to say
Found the best Pagerduty Alternative in Squadcast
By moving to Squadcast from Pagerduty, we have seen a serious reduction in alert fatigue, allowing us to focus more on our development roadmap. 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.

Drastic reduction in alert noise
With Squadcast we saw a drastic reduction in incidents due to suppression of non-urgent alerts and deduplication of alerts. This ensured that only actionable and relevant incidents are reaching the engineers, thereby reducing noise and alert fatigue. Implementing Squadcast helped us achieve better visibility into system health, operational transparency and assurance of SLAs to our customers
