Say hello to the new Uptrends

If you are logging into the Uptrends website, blog, and website monitoring application today, you’re probably noticing things look a little bit different. They feel a little different. And they perform much more quickly. (And no, your coffee is not the culprit.)

We’ve completely updated the Uptrends online family from the ground up.

These changes are not just skin-deep

We have been hard at work developing updates for our website monitoring application, website, and blog for quite some time now, with the goal of improving your overall website uptime and performance monitoring experience. We confident you’re going to love it.

What’s different?

  • Redesigned interface
    The Uptrends Website Monitoring service, website, and blog, have all been completely redesigned to improve your engagement with the content.Out are the bright reds, dim greys, and thumbnail images of old, replaced with breezy blues, exciting images, and easy-to-read typography. Heck, we’ve even increased the content canvas to span the width of your browser!
  • Simplified navigation
    We’ve made it easier to find what you’re looking for, across the board. After studying the average user workflow, we are confident that we have effectively reduced the time it takes to navigate the application, website, and blog, so you can perform actions in less time.
  • Performance improvements
    The overall speed of the Uptrends service, website, and blog have also been improved. You’ll now spend less time waiting for the page to load up the content that you want to see, so you can get back to doing what you do best – taking care of business.

Getting Started with Uptrends v4

We understand that the Uptrends v4 update looks very different from what you’re used to, and that it could be a bit overwhelming at first. That’s why we have gone ahead and created a ‘Getting Started Guide (.PDF)’ that introduces the new interface, and features.

Hold on. What if I’m not ready for the Uptrends update?

Not a problem!

For those of you deeply invested in Uptrends 3 (the prior version with the red color scheme) – don’t worry. The monitoring processes that you’ve come to know and love will remain the same in the Uptrends v4 update, and we are planning on keeping Uptrends 3 operational for the foreseeable future as you migrate to Uptrends v4.

This all looks pretty great! How can I share my feedback?

We’re glad you think so! You can share any feedback, comments, ideas, and suggestions that you have with us over on the Uptrends website.

You can also follow us on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for future updates on everything Uptrends, including the new Uptrends Blog.

Until next time, Uptrend’ers!
