 Why SIGNL4

Retrace helps developers monitor the performance of their applications.  It also provides server data and critical warnings.  These notifications are sent via Email or SMS.  SIGNL4 takes those notifications to the next level.  Not only will users be notified but with on call scheduling, these alerts will go to the right people at the right time.  Alerts will not be missed in an email inbox thanks to SIGNL4’s multiple notification channels and persistent alerting.  With escalation procedures built in, SIGNL4 will ensure that time critical alerts are responded to quickly.

 How it Works

SIGNL4 retrieves detailed alert information sent from Retrace via email notifications. On-call users responsible for such incidents will receive mobile alerts where they can take ownership and even collaborate with peers if needed.
