How to Create a Virtual Team: Our Remote Workforce Checklist

Many business leaders are allowing workers to telecommute, to attract more Millennials and remain competitive in the labor market.

To address this new threat, organizations are now setting up remote workplaces, in days, if not hours.

Has this scenario happened to you? You found a service. A SaaS product or hosted service: it could be anything.

GDPR Episode 2: A New Privacy Policy

What does it take to write a GDPR compliant privacy policy? It was easier than we realized!

StatusCast helps corporations keep their employees happy by providing unified IT status notifications, which gives them the ability to communicate IT status updates with their employees from a single location.

We are based in the United States and don’t actively target European customers.


How much does a status page cost?

Keeping your customers informed of the status of your website, application, or service is essential nowadays. If you don’t have a status page to communicate this, you’re missing an opportunity to improve transparency and reduce customer support burden. This is especially true if you are running an online business and your website is your main source of income, a status page is crucial not only for your business but for your customers as well.


Why Your Status Page Matters and How to Use It

When an outage hits your service, everybody starts talking. Your engineers are talking about what caused the problem, and how to fix it; your management is asking about when it’ll be fixed; and your customers are telling the world that they’re not happy. But there’s an even more important conversation you should be having: communicating with your users about the issue.
