“Hello Jim, You’ve Got a Problem”: Monitis Announces Live-Voice Alert Notifications

Press release

San Jose, CA – April 19, 2010Monitis, the leading provider of all-in-one Cloud-based network and application monitoring, today announced the launch of it’s Live-Voice Alert Notification program that will compliment its already existing SMS-, email-, IM-, and Twitter-based notification systems.

Inspired by the repeated feedback it was receiving from IT managers who, because they were sleeping, had missed critical alerts in the middle of the night via SMS, email, IM, or Twitter, Monitis has created the Live-Voice Alert program to insure IT managers world-wide are always in the know. By giving IT managers a simple phone call, regardless of where they are in the world, Monitis’ Critical Alert team will personally inform customers of critical issues the moment they happen.

Using advanced notification rules to set-up priorities, escalation rules, contacts, and more, the Live-Voice Alert program turns Monitis into an even more sophisticated and reliable tool.

Said Hovhannes Avoyan, Monitis’ Founder and CEO, “This is a tremendous gain for IT managers around the world. Now they can be absolutely, 100% sure that they won’t miss an alert. Monitis is innovating at warp-speed to help save IT managers around the world massive amounts of time. The Live-Voice Alert program is another testament to our customer-driven culture.”

Every Live-Voice Alert is only US$0.50 per call, and users can re-fill their account balances on-demand within the application.
