Email & SMS: Not Good Enough for IT Monitoring
Are you an IT Administrator staring at your phone’s screen all day waiting for an email or text? Have you ever missed a CRITICAL email or text because it didn’t grab your attention?
Using email and SMS for network alerts has been a widely used practice since the early 90’s, but is not an effective and efficient way of receiving these kinds of CRITICAL alerts. Alert notifications are a crucial part of your system monitoring. Missing even one single email or text can result in downtime which can also result in revenue loss, reputation damage, and potential customer defections.
System monitoring without a noticeable alert is like getting a Pizza delivered to your building but not knowing when, so unless you sit there by the lobby waiting for that Pizza, by the time you find the Pizza it’s stale and cold.
OnPage helps to eliminate this process so that you can receive your system alerts immediately. OnPage has a persistent and audible alert that will grab your attention within seconds. With the ability to push the message to your phone for up to 8 hours, you can ensure that you will never miss a CRITICAL alert ever again.
