"@watch has become one of the most valuable tools used by TechEmployment.com," says Matthew C. Hollingsworth. TechEmployment.com has two equally important customers, employers and job seekers, and we provide them with targeted technical recruiting solutions. It's imperative that our web site is up and available as close to 100% of the time as possible. I would recommend @watch to anyone who needs to ensure that their web site is up and running properly. It's an invaluable service that can save you thousands of lost sales dollars.

Chief Operating Officer & CTO

We use @watch's service to audit our website accessibility, assess the end user performance experience, show performance trends, and provide alerts if a problem arises. We have a considerably talented group here who publish and maintain our web sites; developing the sites, updating content, managing the information, and making sure it's available for our site visitors.

One of the main reasons we use @watch is because we need external unbiased monitoring of our sites. Collegeview.com offers information on thousands of colleges and universities including virtual campus tours, criteria-based searches, financial aid answers, scholarships and resources, school applications, career information, and much more. So, take time to wander around some of our sites - @watch helps us make sure it's all there.


MTD Products Inc.
Greg Rice
Web Administrator

Since his company signed on with @watch, server down time has been kept to a minimum. Greg Rice explains that MTD (Modern Tool & Dye) -- which manufacturers Cub Cadet lawn mowers and other outdoor power equipment -- hosts its consumer Web site internally and the site includes the capability for consumers to download service manuals, which is one critical reason why the server must be continually up and running.

Problem is, MTD doesn't have a round-the-clock tech staff to monitor the connections. "Since we started using @watch, it's kept us from having to spend money on personnel costs and other expensive services to keep our server going," says Rice. "It fit the bill for us because it continually polls our server and makes sure response times are good -- and without it, we would have no way of knowing if customers who log on are having a good experience."

Rice says that on the occasions when @watch has detected problems, he's been contacted within minutes. "It sends an e-mail to my pager telling me exactly what the problem is, and I've been able to get the server back up and running within 15 minutes," he says. "It's great, because if it went down on the weekend or overnight, it could be down days before we even knew it."

eMindBIZ Network Operations

eMindBIZ provides customers with web hosting and web development solutions. We tackle projects ranging from a small business website, to a multiserver co-located cluster. That said, keeping tabs on the datacenter is a requirement for any ISP. Internal monitoring system's are a great solution, however using a "looking glass" from another network is necessary to see the big picture. @Watch has provided eMindBIZ this service, coupled with excellent support from their staff. We have, and will continue to recommend @Watch to anyone in need of an external monitoring presence.

First Tracks Software, L.L.C.
Ryan Reichenbach

First Tracks Software is an application service provider providing Hosted CRM and Customer Satisfaction Solutions. Our customers are businesses located all over the United States and depend upon our systems to provide 24/7 access to their hosted websites, CRM data, system integration, and remote backup procedures. Having a monitoring service like @watch is necessary to provide alerts regarding service connectivity issues as well as detailed reports on service uptime.

Aside from being 100% dependable at sending alerts, the tech support provided by @watch is excellent. It's not too often that you get a follow up phone call after an email regarding a tech support request. But this is exactly what I got and is an excellent policy. In my situation, this helped remedy my problem much faster than if I had been dealing with my telcom or internet service providers. Your personalized service is greatly appreciated.
