StatusCake and Slack integration

Are you losing revenue from unexpected website downtime?

If the answer is yes then don’t worry, we’ve got the solution. If the answer is no, we’d say check again, because website downtime almost always loses you revenue. You can see a pretty accurate estimate of how much traffic and therefore, potential customers, that you lost during your downtime and compare that with conversions. The outcome? Lost revenue.

With StatusCake’s website monitoring, we’ll alert you in Slack as soon as your website goes down, in any of your chosen locations, so you can do something about it before you see a decrease in your numbers. Getting website downtime alerts in Slack means that you can get to work on your website issues quicker, so your customers might not even notice.
