IT ENGINE FEATURES
Alert and escalate IT incidents automatically.
xMatters automates the important task of notifying, escalating, and driving collaboration on an IT incident, reducing response time by up to 80% and leading to faster incident resolution and less downtime. In addition, xMatters provides full visibility into the process to drive accountability and help you optimize the process.
Schedules and escalations
“Set then forget” your on-call schedules.
When something goes wrong, it helps to know you’re covered even when you’re at your kids’ recital. xMatters lets you “set and forget” on-call schedules, define escalation rules, and keep contact lists up-to-date. The ticket’s assigned to the right person. Your (IT management) engine notifies you that he’s accepted the ticket. And you get to relax and enjoy your kid’s, um…“interpretation” of Mozart’s sonata.
Two-way mobile access
Resolving IT issues is a two-way street.
Since IT incidents don’t keep to a schedule, xMatters lets you receive incident notifications – and communicate and collaborate with others to get them resolved – no matter where you are. Whether you and your collaborators want it via email, phone, or SMS, xMatters can deliver. So you can acknowledge or update tickets, accept a change, put a job on ice, update the help desk or monitoring system you use, find help, or instantly organize a conference call…all from your mobile device.
