The easiest way to create a hosted, branded status page
Today we’re happy to announce that we’ve added a new option to component statuses, the “Maintenance” state.
When StatusPage.io first started out, internal communication was simple. Steve could talk to Scott. Scott could talk to Steve. They were both working on launching the company. They both have a web development background. They’re related. For the most part, they knew how to talk to each other. But companies grow. At least that’s the plan. And with almost no exception, communication gets harder. Now that StatusPage.io is at 11 people (and growing), communication is trickier.
StatusPage.io, the leading status page as a service provider, has launched Public Metrics, allowing software companies to display a variety of performance metrics such as Uptime and Response Time on their customer facing status pages. Having an up to date status page reinforced with performance metrics is one of the easiest ways for companies to build trust with customers and reduce the volume of inbound support tickets during downtime.
Y Combinator-backed StatusPage is in the fortunate position of having paying customers like Jawbone, Shopify, New Relic, Parse, Ping Identity and Zendesk, ahead of today’s official debut. The startup, as you may have guessed, offers a hosted status page for any company with a website, service or application. It’s the kind of thing many businesses want to offer their customers, but often don’t have the time or resources to build themselves.
