Top Challenges

Visibility: Visibility across departments came at a steep price as there was a cost associated for every stakeholder
Analytics: Unable to measure MTTR and MTTA with their current alerting tool
Unpredictable Cost: During a massive migration, billed multiple times for the same alerts thus increasing overall cost of alert cycle
Difficult Scheduling: Non-intuitive feature of their current tool made scheduling a  tiring task

We got our whole team on Squadcast. The free unlimited stakeholders feature took care of all the visibility issues we were facing with our previous alerting tool. I firmly believe that an alerting system needs to be as efficient as any other service by being consistent, and with Squadcast we achieved precisely this goal. We were able to connect the incidents from various monitoring applications to the right stakeholders. Achieved better operational transparency, collaboration and assurance of SLAs
