Making sure your website is up and running 24*7 is vital when running any kind of business.

Slow load times can mean lost revenue and also dissatisfied customers who – in today’s digital world – are likely to take their complaints to social media as easily as they are to contact you and report a problem.

With SmartBear’s AlertSite Website Monitoring you get an up-to-date view of the health of your key business transactions.

Here are the top 10 reasons to use AlertSite to monitor your website:

  1. The scripts are easy to create

Record transactions directly inside your browser using the DéjàClick toolbar and start monitoring without the need to add custom scripting or wait for vendor approvals.

  1. It has the most reliable alerts available

Its alerts are triple checked so you don’t have to worry about false alarms that wake you up in the middle of the night unnecessarily.

  1. When website problems happen it has the complete picture

Each time an error or alert occurs AlertSite Web Monitoring captures screen shots, header info and source code to help you find the root cause and get the problem fixed faster.

  1. Stay competitive with industry benchmarks

Track how your website is performing against the competition with detailed performance rankings.

  1. Ajax, Flex and Flash ready ‘out of the box’

No custom scripting, timings, or coding is needed to monitor Rich Internet Applications. In addition, AlertSite has just added advanced image validation capabilities to make it easier to determine if Flash or other images on your website are displaying correctly.

5.It monitors using real Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers

With AlertSite you can capture monitoring results across multiple browsers to quickly identify performance differences and optimisation opportunities.

  1. You’ve heard of ‘rollover minutes’ . . . AlertSite has ‘rollover measurements’

Most vendors take away unused measurements at the end of each month…with AlertSite it lets you rollover up to 20% of your measurements in to the next billing cycle.

  1. Save time re-scripting with the most stable scripts around

With most AlertSite scripts there is no need to re-record every time there is a small change on the webpage. The smart recording technology lets you record it once and automatically determines the best (and most stable) way to navigate your Website.

  1. Flexible usage plans to meet your business needs

With AlertSite there is no need to call your sales rep to change your monitoring mix, simply configure it the way you want to meet your current business needs. Increase monitoring frequency during peak times or add, subtract, and switch monitoring locations at any time.

  1. It will save you money and help you monitor more of your website

With AlertSite your monitoring budget will go further so you can monitor more of what matters to your business.
