Build better customer experience and business transparency with a free status page
When a service outage strikes, one of the first responsibilities, along with diagnosis, is proactive communication. A reliable, dedicated channel that can publish updates can deflect support tickets, keep internal stakeholders informed, and can turn downtime into an exercise in improving the customer experience. StatusIQ provides customizable and reliable status pages for your digital business.
Don’t keep your customers in the dark
Communicate early and often. Quickly acknowledge the problem by posting the incident on your status page with details like current status, severity, and affected services. Also, customers appreciate information regarding the progress your team is making towards a resolution. Keep them in the loop by adding frequent updates to the incident.
Your status page in your own brand
Showcase and preserve your branding throughout the entire incident lifecycle. Upload your logo and favicon, map a custom domain like status.yourbusiness.com to the default address, and authorize StatusIQ to send notifications on behalf of your email domain to improve recognition with your customers.
Help your customers plan ahead
Sometimes, you have to inform your customers about upcoming maintenance events to help them prepare for any potential impact. With StatusIQ status page, you can create a one-time or recurring maintenance schedule that automatically updates the status page regarding the timing of these events and sends email notifications.
Drive down ticket volume during outages
Your customers don’t want to visit your status page every time they’re unable to access your service, and you don’t want your support agents wasting time answering the same questions over and over. Send out notifications to your customers via email or SMS, or enable them to access updates via RSS. You can also help your end users avoid alert fatigue by enabling them to opt-in for notifications from the services they care about.
Build trust with your customers
Once an incident is resolved, customers expect additional information about the service disruption. With Postmortem, you can write an accurate account of what happened, from root cause to future safeguards, and publish the content. You can also add tables and links to provide more context, and format text using our rich text editor to emphasize key portions in your message.
