Scott Howard By Scott Howard

Omnilert is pleased to introduce the new Network Status dashboard. This new resource allows customers to access live updates related to the Omnilert Network. The genesis was to provide full transparency to our customers and to fulfill our quest to be continually responsive to our customers’ needs and requests.

Omnilert believes that confidence, integrity, and transparency are the main ingredients for developing trust in a solutions provider. That trust should translate into an increased peace of mind for customers.

 

As the Omnilert critical communications network is designed for maximum uptime, Omnilert customers can now have immediate visibility into:

  • Current network status
  • Incident details
  • Progress in restoring services
  • Cause of any interruption of service
  • Uptime metrics
  • Scheduled maintenance
  • History of network outages, issues, and resolutions

 

You can subscribe to receive updates via Email, Twitter, and/or RSS feed and each “incident” has it’s own subscribe option for those who only wish receive updates concerning that specific event. The dashboard can be accessed from any smartphone.

As always, your Omnilert Account Manager is available to answer any questions and make recommendations.
