Create & Customize Alerts To Fit Your Needs

An alerting system is not a one-size-fits-all tool. What works for one company may not offer the services you want or provide a tiered-access system to alert pertinent staff rather than sending out a mass notification. With Liongard, you can pinpoint any piece of data from any system and create specific thresholds you want to alert on. When you automate your custom monitoring system, you can enjoy features that resolve critical issues and give your staff the time to focus on other important responsibilities.

IT Alerting Helps MSPs Work Smarter

MSPs work as extra teams to assist your IT department. If they do not connect with your staff or follow protocol, actionable alerts could fall through the cracks. When you create customized alerts, you can build the infrastructure you need by categorizing alerts and monitoring response times.

IT Alerting Attributes

Consider your communications hub as the central brain of your operation. It functions as part database and part dashboard to help you track your server, generate reports, note incidents, or set new functions for helpful alerting.

Alerts exist for a reason, and it’s imperative that your teams don’t overlook them. To ensure that your customers or teams see this content, alerts can persist at determined intervals until the issue resolves. Additionally, you can set up persistent alerts until your teams read them and respond. The goal is faster action from alerts that your teams no longer overlook.

Normally reserved for incident teams or triage, abnormality alerting can focus on system failure, incident crisis, or anything else out of the ordinary. This kind of alerting can stop you from wasting time with a restart that just slows down productivity. With an elevated alert, you have monitoring capability for notification receipt and review.

If every alert carries the same weight, how will your staff know what is outstanding and what is completed? With prioritized alerting, you decide which alert to escalate and which general notifications to automate. A priority database of SMS, voice, or email alerting can help your company communicate smarter. It's also a useful tool to keep track of each lead and resolve each incident ticket.

Do you have staff to dedicate to escalating alerts? Our custom alerting does it all for you. After building a database of incidents and monitoring tools, you can see just how helpful an IT alert can be. It can also reduce downtime when you learn how to utilize alerting to your advantage.

Rely on an IT alerting system that integrates with the way you communicate. Voice, email, and SMS give you multiple channels to broadcast your alert. You can also use our monitoring protocol to generate reports about the efficacy of the channels you use to streamline your processes.

Incident Analysis After the Alert

It’s one thing to automate alerting to capture and address incidents, but how do you know if your staff can resolve issues or investigate a positive lead? Get the answers to evaluate how each alert works and learn where your company can improve.

Issue Resolution

How do you know if a team member overlooked a notification? Analysis is the key to determining the effectiveness of your IT alerting, and without it, your company may not learn from its mistakes.

By reviewing an issue and corresponding alert, you can see what changes you need or if you should restart a broader alert. Additionally, your company can benefit from issue tracking to reduce alert fatigue and frustration.

Case Studies Show You Why It Works

Want to learn what our clients think about our custom IT alerting? These case studies identify how our process helps teams answer alerts with minimal instructions or delays. We couldn't say it better ourselves. One example of a thriving business that saved big with Liongard is ES Consulting. Instead of searching manually for issues such as unused or duplicate Microsoft 365 licenses, out-of-date security certificates, disabled multi-factor authentication and critical changes, ES Consulting uses Liongard to silently inspect data and send alerts when it finds these (and many other) concerns.



An IT alerting system can contact team members regarding any action deemed necessary. You can send an alert message as a notification to your entire staff to keep them aware or elevate an alert to your incident management team to monitor problems.

An incident alert notifies IT technicians or other appropriate teams of any actionable events or leads. It could involve something routine like a power failure or something more significant. These alerts require action to prevent downtime or any other issues that impact working efficiency.

System-wide alerts reach everyone simultaneously to keep your whole team aware of any operations changes, system outages, or other incidents. You can determine where these alerts originate from the service desk, IT environment, or management to inform your staff of the correct information they need, any time of day.

Notifications are more along the lines of quick FYI memos, while alerts are worth a quick interruption to ensure everyone sees the pertinent information. With both alerts and notifications distracting your team, you may notice that alert fatigue takes over. When you observe your staff members missing key details or overlook a response, it’s time to differentiate and minimize over-alerting.
