What is a status page?
A status page is a public facing website that helps your customer visualize your business’s performance uptime, scheduled maintenance events, unforeseen issues impacting logistics, or even bug reports and their resolution progress.
Why is a status page useful?
Reputable businesses are not afraid of transparency. In fact, studies show that customers are more than 80% more likely to trust a business and therefore buy from a business when it has a history of transparency.
