US-based provider of financial solutions takes incident management to
a whole new level
Our senior management team agrees –
Exigence is instrumental to our incident response processes.

Orchestrate without any change management required due to high levels of integration with existing tools
A US provider of cloud-based financial services was looking to replace its highly manual process for incident management, which was error-prone, time intensive, and couldn’t scale to handle larger volumes of incidents
It was also seeking a solution that would serve as a single source of truth for all incident related data and which would enable the team to manage the process through a single pane of glass. This is because toggling between screens to execute various tasks, such as data upload,
real-time chat, or sending updates, was a great burden.
The provider needed a more efficient, accurate, and automated solution for handling the major incidents that were impacting system performance, service operations, and the customer experience.
The financial services provider came to Exigence
to implement its solution for automating incident management in the InfoSec department that handles cyber incidents, and in the cloud and engineering department which manages the services provided to customers.
The time from implementation to go-live was only at two months, ahead of expectations, and since then incident management has been completely transformed.
Multiple manual tasks have been automated, such as data capture and upload, with all incident related data now aggregated and centralized – for the first time – in a single source.
Not only has this freed up incident personnel to focus
on more strategic tasks. It has also made it possible for them to rely on Exigence as the single source of truth for incident management, as well as to expedite the generation of postmortem reports and to assure unprecedented accuracy.
We evaluated nine different offerings with 75 questions on our RFP that need to be answered.
Out of the two or three who said they offer a single pane of glass, only Exigence had exactly what we needed.
We had a two-fold increase of incidents right after Exigence was deployed. And thanks to the platform we were able to handle them flawlessly.
We wouldn’t have been able to do that had we continued with our manual process.
Among the benefits that Exigence delivers are:
Reduced mean time to resolution
(MTTR), by automating key manual tasks
Handling multiple incidents at the same time
80% less time for drafting communications, at 3 minutes vs. 15, by using role-based automated templates
Optimized communication efficiency without any change management required due to high levels of integration with existing tools
Insights gleaned from improved KPI monitoring, such as incident handling start/stop times
The Exigence-driven flow
A complex process that was never marked by clarity is now something that is straightforward and clear.
Getting the alert
that an incident has occurred and requires attention
Opening a ticket
in the ticketing tool,
the incident team
incident response program head and the rest of the team
opening bridges providing information, and paging out responders
Communicating efficiently throughout the incident,
as facilitated by Exigence
Uploading data to Exigence
for audits, to assure SLAs are being met
with one click as enabled
One of the biggest factors that sold us on Exigence was how flexible the platform is in addressing our different needs and the team’s ability to deliver on their promise in a very short time frame. No other vendor in my 35-year career has responded as fast.
