Seattle, Wash. (Gawkwire.com) Fuze Digital Solutions announced today that its hosting infrastructure experienced only 74 minutes of unscheduled system downtime and 60 minutes of scheduled downtime during all of 2008. Since its inception in 2002, Fuze has experienced less than 300 minutes of downtime, which equates to an industry leading uptime exceeding 99.99%.
Fuze provides a web-based customer care software solution, the Fuze Suite. Says Chuck Van Court, president and founder of Fuze, "We clearly understand that our infrastructure supports mission-critical applications that can impact our customers’ brands and profitability. For over six years now we have proven that we know how to deliver a fault-tolerant environment that our on-demand customers can count on."
Says Christi Graybill, Customer Service Director at Calendars.com, "The cost of our customer care solution being unavailable is significant, especially during the holiday season. We’ve been a Fuze client for over 4 years, and they have proven to be a partner we can count on to provide a stable and highly performing application."
Added Michael Taylor, Senior Operations Services Manager for Careerbuilder.com, "Fuze has been a solid partner for us during our 5 years working together. Their product is robust with reliable and consistent performance, and their support is attentive and flexible."
Online consumers have little tolerance for poor system performance and will quickly move to another company if they have a poor user experience. A recent survey completed by close to 1,000 consumers on the GetHuman.com website regarding online expectations reinforced this with over 90% of consumers expecting service levels to be posted online and 60% expecting responses to their questions within 4 business hours.

"At Fuze, we recognize that the end-user experience is everything, and service uptime is one of the most critical elements of this experience," added Van Court. "We’re glad to provide the system uptime and performance that our clients and their end-users demand."
