Why you need Pingdom ?
If you are a business with an online presence, it is important that your website and other online services are available 24/7, all year round. However, all websites have occasional problems, whether the reason is external or internal, and there is a significant risk that you are unaware of these problems. Just because the company website is accessible from inside the company, does not necessarily mean it is available from the Internet.
Poor online availability can become costly both in terms of lost goodwill and lost business opportunities. The Internet is more and more becoming the main point of contact, and if you are not there to be seen, you become invisible.
With Pingdom, any problem with your website will be discovered the minute it happens. You will be immediately alerted so you can take action before it affects your business. You will also be able to see detailed statistics of your website performance, giving you a historical record of all incidents.
Use it wherever you are
