Protect communication

Between the core incident response team
When an incident starts, Blameless opens a thread in your chat-app, dedicated to that incident. Your team can use bot commands or emoji reactions to assign roles, progress the incident forward, update the incident timeline, and more.

Inform stakeholders

Keep managers and executives in the loop, with the right info, at the right time
Status reports are important but are a huge distraction to the engineers responding to an incident. Blameless allows you to pre-configure message templates and automatic triggers so that comms get shared with real-time data. You don’t need to stop what you’re doing to make sure internal stakeholders are keeping a pulse on your services.
See how CommsFlow™ helps each stakeholder group stay in the know easily.

Work together

Organize incident communication by leveraging swimlanes
Often incidents are a result of more than just one contributing factor. This means you need to break down the investigation into multiple conversations. Blameless makes it easy to organize your thoughts and incident response communication by offering Swimlane capabilities with your dedicated Slack or Microsoft Teams channels.
