WebSitePulse Announces Fully Functioning Test Accounts

WebSitePulse, a leading provider of web applications and remote monitoring services, announced today that they are now offering fully functional test accounts for server monitoring. This new feature has been dubbed, ‘All You Can Use in 30 Days’ and does not require the user to enter in any credit card information and no commitment to use the service when it expires is enforced.

“We understand the sales mentality behind the typical free trial that encourages potential Clients to pay in order to ‘unlock’ the special powers of the service,” says Iavor Marinoff, CEO of WebSitePulse. “Until now, our Customers did not have the chance to understand the benefit of some of our features and innovative solutions. Therefore, we decided to offer free access to everything, and to demonstrate our full capabilities to them. With the new – ‘All You Can Use in 30 Days’ – approach, we are setting a new standard for Customer satisfaction in our industry.”

The service includes remote monitoring of server errors and provides users with multi-media alerts when errors occur.
