What does Uptrends actually do?
Uptrends is a SaaS monitoring platform, started in 2007.
Customers use our products to proactively monitor their websites, servers, or APIs, so they can fix errors faster and give their visitors a better digital experience.
One of the most important aspects is our worldwide checkpoint network. These are servers that automatically check at set intervals whether a website is still available, analyze how fast that website loads, or verify whether processes such as logging in, booking reservations, or payments still work properly.
There is much more; we would be happy to tell you all about it in our first conversation!
