    Great website monitoring service! I have it integrated with other apps and I get notified right after an incident occurs on my page.

    Squadcast vs PagerDuty opinions
    Most users think Squadcast is a great alternative to PagerDuty.

    Simple UI/UX and a few great features to eliminate unwanted alerts. The alert suppression and maintenance mode is a smart way to filter the critical alerts from the noisy ones. Particularly liked the configurable Deduplication feature. Their free status page though basic is still a good add on at no extra cost. Overall when we compared Squadcast to others like Pagerduty, Opsgenie - found to be a better fit for our use case and budget.

    Squadcast is accurate in reporting incidents and their metrics. It integrates well with existing monitoring solutions, so it does not cause a lot of overhead while setting it up. The integration of JIRA ticketing is a huge plus, as it automates the creation of tickets for issues to be addressed.

    Ability to configure SLOs, SLIs. Rules engine to deduplicate, suppress and auto route alerts, tagging as a way to configure literally anything including severities or incident types, in-built postmortem templates and both public (free forever) and private statuspages.

    We've been using iLert every day for years. This is a very good and stable platform. And for us it is also a big plus that the servers are in Germany. #GDPR
