When something goes wrong it can cost you money and reputation, so you need to keep informed about it as soon as possible to keep downtime to a minimum. Using our API this can be built in to notify you automatically as soon as something goes wrong.

As with hardware, certain software systems need constant monitoring to maintain them, this is yet another instance where SMS can provide a quick and cheap method of notification should something go wrong.

This is proven to decrease response times dramatically.
