Up or Not is Here to Stop Website Downtime

Companies located around the world are being urged to become more aware of the financial costs of web downtime.

Andrew Hilton, Technical Director at QuadroNation, said companies were in danger of losing thousands of pounds in revenue after recent studies showed almost one in four companies have suffered an outage that lasted more than one business day.

In order to combat the problem and after requests from their customer base, Andrew and the team have developed a web monitoring service entitled ‘UporNot’, which alerts businesses the minute they have an issue with their website, email server or any web accessible service for that matter.

Andrew said: “When a company suffers from IT downtime it means that it is having a direct affect on that business. Some firms can lose up to £10,000 an hour or even a staggering £1m a day, which means that the problem needs to be taken more seriously.

“What we have now created is a tool to stop that from happening. The moment there is something wrong with a website, we are alerted and the problem can be rectified as soon as possible.”

The need for strategic IT support is becoming increasingly important as firms strive to provide high levels of service to retain long-standing customers.

Andrew added: “IT support companies are still as invaluable as ever to any business, however, if a site goes down, it has to be treated in a different way than when there is something wrong with an email system, for example and being aware of the issue is really the first step.”

UporNot, which has now gone live, has already attracted global interest as it provides its services to companies around the world.

When did you last paint your garden fence?

If you are a “big change” business, then you are like my garden fence. Leaving it unpainted for so long has created much more work, at a higher cost, than if it had been tended to every year. Ignoring reviews of your online activity for long periods also means you make more work for yourself and raise your costs.
