Speed matters for your website, don't get left in the dust

Do you like fast cars? I must admit I do.  I also like websites that are fast too. In this day and age where Internet speed is now blazing fast, your customers expect everything else to keep pace.  Customers now expect a web page to load in two seconds or less and will abandon the web page if it takes more than three seconds (see chart below). 

 

I believe that if a page doesn’t load in less than one second, your customers have moved on already.  Just remember, in this marketplace, your competitors are one click away.  With these facts in mind, I have a few questions for you:

 

  • How long does your web page take to load?
  • How long does it take to load on mobile devices? 
  • How long does it take to load on the myriad of web browsers? 
  • Which direction is your performance going, are you getting faster?

 

Last week we announced the public unveiling of HP Performance Anywhere, a new Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, that monitors the end user performance  and  availability of web- and mobile-based apps. We are in the midst of proving a free public beta; if you want to know how your website performs then I encourage you to sign up.

 

By signing up for the beta, you’ll get insight into how your website performs.  You can monitor your website from our SaaS data centers or public points of presence so you can see what your customers are experiencing in different cities or markets. 

 

In addition, we can help you detect and determine why your website is not performing as well you would like. Plus, HP Performance Anywhere includes predictive analytics so you can see the instant your website begins to deviate from accepted norms.

 

Take our service for a test drive and hit the accelerator on your business potential!
