The Unify Stack Program builds in resources and touch points with Better Stack experts on two related paths – one focused on technical success, the other focused on business success.
Simplicity for the administrators. The Unify Stack Program includes the tools, processes, and partners you need for a frictionless technical consolidation.
Architecture workshops: Our experts and yours will take a fresh look at where you are and where you need to go over the next year to enable tech unification. This interactive session with Better Stack experts will help us focus together on the most meaningful consolidation paths for your organization and dive into the supporting technologies available to make the transition even easier.
Technical migration tools and support: To streamline your consolidation, Better Stack can help you with exporting and importing critical data from other tools to Better Stack. These remove the majority of manual and tedious work from the consolidation and allow for clean and stress-free migration.
Product training workshops: Part of the consolidation is also the onboarding of new teams or team members onto the Better Stack platform. Our customizable and fully-remote online training workshops allow a smooth transition from other tools, even for less technical team members. Making new Better Stack users into power users within weeks.
For executives and team leads, it couldn’t be more clear when it comes to showing tangible business value and cost savings that impact your business's bottom line.
Return On Investment (ROI) calculation: We value showing, not just telling you about the value from Better Stack. We want to make sure customers recognize the quantifiable business impacts that can be realized by unifying their tools into the Better Stack platform.
Escape your current contract: Don’t let your existing contract be a stopper to your long-term software modernization. Better Stack is committed to making the consolidation process as cost-effective as possible – which means tools and flexible financial options for customers to reach escape velocity from other tools and land safely with Better Stack. You won’t regret this interaction come renewal time.
Why consolidating tools with Better Stack just makes sense
More and more organizations are choosing Better Stack as their main incident management and observability platform. They typically cite our strengths across a few key evaluation criteria:
User experience: Engineers, administrators, and even non-technical teams cite ease of use as the main benefit. Better Stack offers a single, unified control plane that helps your organization to progress towards its development goals.
Simplicity and integration: Customers value the unification of capabilities into a single product. Better Stack removes obstacles posed by the administration, finance, and legal management of multiple tools and cuts those tasks to a minimum. The same goes for removing risk for maintaining technical integrations and ensuring they work correctly.
Increase developer velocity: Customers love the fact that cross-team collaboration is no longer a problem as teams across security, support, development, platform, and more are all working in the same place. Working on a project together or onboarding anyone is straightforward and allows for radically faster workflows.
Cost-savings: Customers appreciate significant tech spend optimization posed by this consolidation. This comes in the form of direct savings: having one tool fully utilized is cheaper than having multiple tools where the plans are not fully used. And also in the form of saving compliance, security, procurement, and legal team’s time and hustle.
