To steal from David Fincher's excellent film Fight Club, what's the first rule for your website? The answer is, of course, to never have any downtime. When your server or browser  is down and you don't know about it, there's a pretty good possibility that your visitors will go elsewhere and possibly not come back. Appfail is a cloud-based error monitoring system that enables online businesses to discover, diagnose and track failures in their websites and immediately let's  you know about it with an email or message straight to your device.
Organizations invest significant resources to encourage  customers and traffic to their web sites but then risk losing them due to unforeseen web site errors. With Appfail’s error detection and in-depth analytics, organizations can now know when their site fails and react quickly, to prevent impact to their business. Appfail brings rich visual analysis akin to Google Analytics to monitor website failure. In the past, the discovery and tracking of web failure has tended to be rather data heavy and cumbersome and consequently near ineffective. Many times, web failure is down to isolated incidents that you can do little about but this SaaS application focuses on the important ones - failures with the highest business and revenue impact, Appfail’s suite of analytics is designed to help developers and administrators quickly diagnose and address problems with real-time notifications to email or cell phones allowing administrators to know the moment there is a problem. Appfail’s website integration is seamless and unseen to the end-user and takes only a couple of minutes to plug in Appfail and monitor your server and browsers for failures. Appfail monitors web servers built on the Microsoft ASP.NET platform (including WebForms, MVC and Web API). Unlike most failure monitoring solutions Appfail also supports JavaScript error monitoring. A user’s web browser is the too-often forgotten component. Browser failures often go unnoticed for long periods of time and present cryptic errors to users. With Appfail an administrator knows every time a user experiences a JavaScript failure in their browser. It will even identify the user individually so you can contact them and try to rebuild your online relationship.
Many similar downtime analytical applications tend to be a little over detailed and over complicated and cloud the issue so it's quite refreshing to come across one that concentrate on the more important ones. If you tried to solve every failure and problem that comes along with server and browser downtime you'd be up all night. Appfail analyzes everything but concentrates on the ones that affect your revenue intake. A message to your cell phone or an email is sent when problems arise and full analysis is right up there with the depth of Google Analytics. Appfail is an easy to use and cost effective way of keeping your website up and running and reduce downtime losses.
