MessageBird Team

Getting the right information to the right people at the right time

PagerDuty is a digital operations management platform that helps companies of all sizes proactively manage their digital ecosystem through monitoring and alerts — enabling immediate action when every second matters.

Alerts and notifications used to be complex and spotty, but PagerDuty works to make them reliable and accessible. Its cloud-based services integrate with virtually any software-enabled system so that the moment something goes wrong, the customer is alerted.

Successfully alerting teams no matter where they are

When there’s an incident — a misconfiguration, a server down, or any technical problem that may cause issues — the right team or individual needs to know as soon as possible, to minimize potential impact on their users. With PagerDuty’s platform, incidents are sent to the right on-call responders using predefined escalation policies to enable faster responses.

But with customers worldwide, PagerDuty must deliver these notifications wherever its customers are located.

“We choose MessageBird for its carrier route optimizations, enabling us to reach our customers more reliably in hard-to-reach areas of the world.”
