With a Projected $44.7B in Online Sales at Stake this Season, Retail Websites Must Run at Peak Performance

“up.time is my own personal ‘time machine’ that lets me anticipate issues and put measures in place before the customer is affected."

With $44.7B in online sales at stake this holiday season, retailers are counting more than ever on their websites to attract shoppers and fill shopping carts. To keep websites working optimally and shoppers buying—especially during the holidays when retailers are most in need of peak performance--many companies are bringing on technology, like uptime software’s, that can proactively monitor performance and resolve problems before the customer is affected.

“Companies must think in advance about how well their site is prepared to withstand strain. Those that don't prepare well for busy times -- like the holidays -- are likely to find out the hard way that there’s a problem with their web site. In order to compete for customer clicks, companies must keep on top of problems that can occur at any time with automated monitoring tools like up.time,” said Alex Bewley, Chief Technology Officer of uptime software.

up.time represents a quantum leap forward for companies that need to drive both IT performance and cost-savings, while ensuring a consistent quality of service. The technology provides IT managers with an unobstructed view of the datacenter to efficiently manage everything from website performance to distributed applications and global services levels, all while maximizing enterprise-wide IT resources. The solution’s ability to span both physical, virtual, and cloud environments has helped hundreds of customers achieve higher levels of IT performance and availability with immediate cost savings.

For Cristian Speranta, President of D8Base Systems Inc., Christmas arrived early this year. Using up.time to proactively monitor the IT health of his website and applications, Speranta was recently able to identify an issue involving a critical application and took immediate steps to resolve the problem, saving the company over $50,000 in lost revenue.

“We were able to pay for our entire investment in up.time with just one averted crisis,” said Speranta. “up.time is my own personal ‘time machine’ that lets me anticipate issues and put measures in place before the customer is affected. I can also run meaningful reports around performance issues rather than relying on speculation or gut instinct. Anyone who is serious about monitoring and performance management should be looking at uptime software.”
