How Status Pages Can Help You Retain Customers in This Digital Age

The impact of 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic collectively upended customer behavior with sweeping and immediate changes that we are still feeling the effects of now.

7 Ways Your Status Page Can Save You

Having a Status Page is like having a dog. A dog alerts you to an incident; sudden noise, approaching neighbor, squirrel… A dog sounds the alarm on an intruder. A dog even alerts you to maintenance by barking at every handyman, garbage truck, and gardener within sight. As a dog fetches the same stick over and over, so does a status page fetch the attention of your users – especially during a live incident – with each browser refresh they wait for the status to change.
