Our data and external studies have consistently shown that web page performance is a critical factor in online retail success. Especially on mobile phones which is where we see almost three-quarters of our customers’ traffic,” said Darin Archer, Chief Product Officer of Yottaa. “With the launch of Cache Experience, Yottaa reaffirms its commitment to advancing the frontier of eCommerce technology. It enables brands to accelerate the entire digital shopper journey. As a result, shoppers get more engaging online experiences and brands experience higher conversions.”

Enterprise Times: What this means for businesses

Retailers, brands and online merchants experienced record-level online traffic during the recent holiday season. As a result, enterprises now find themselves with numerous challenges across their eCommerce eco-systems. With lower traffic levels, digital marketing teams need to drive more shoppers to the site, which is very expensive. At the same time, these brands are seeing conversion rates drop.

Additionally, their eCommerce teams are required to find new tools to convert browsers to buyers once they are onsite. Hence Yottaa launching its Cache Experience solution. Its new prefetching capabilities are expected to support retailers and brands to enhance shopping experiences for faster shopper engagement. Yottaa say this will lead to higher conversions. While this all sounds good in theory, solid customer journeys across all digital touchpoints remains essential for brands and retailers.
