Uptrends’ growth continues: Revenue up 25% in Q2 2016

Following a strong first quarter, Uptrends’ growth continues in the second quarter of 2016 with a 25% increase over the previous year’s revenues. Along with increased revenue, Q2 saw the addition of many new features, the publication of the French website and application, new checkpoints, and 116 new customers.

New Features

Uptrends never stops improving their services. Q2 saw many new features.

Operator based SMS settings

The available SMS providers vary based on the operator’s location. Just like with Uptrends, many companies have employees in multiple countries, so setting the SMS provider at a company-wide level doesn’t make sense for all employees. With Uptrends new operator based SMS settings feature, companies can override the company-wide default for each operator based on the operator’s location. Learn more.

Expected HTTP Status Codes

Sometimes only one status code is acceptable. For example, if a company permanently moves a page, the expected return status is a page redirect (status 301). Anything other than a 301 status is an alert situation, so the new content matching feature makes alerting on specific codes possible. Learn more.

Mobile website monitoring and multi-browser monitoring

With the large variety of mobile devices and web browser available, companies need to know that their responsive designs work properly for all of their site’s visitors. Mobile and multi-browser monitoring allow companies to choose the screen size, screen resolution, and the browser type and version for their monitoring. Learn more.
