Enterprises that invest in website performance are investing in their business.

In an era where shoppers expect lightning-fast experiences online, it comes as no surprise that brands are leaving millions of dollars on the table due to slow load times:

  • Amazon found that just 100 milliseconds of website latency causes a 1% drop in sales.
  • Google's traffic dropped 20% after they slowed by 0.5 seconds, resulting in a significant ad revenue loss.
  • Microsoft Store found 25% more revenue in 2015 from improving speed.

Whether you’re a developer looking for ways to improve speed, a marketer trying to drive higher conversion rates, or an executive growing revenue and market share, website performance is a worthy investment. Instart Logic and Blue Triangle's joint offering will reduce bounce rates and increase conversions by improving the speed of your site, validating those improvements with actual dollars, and uncovering additional performance and revenue-related opportunities.

How it Works

By combining the power of Instart Logic’s endpoint-aware application delivery solution with the unique capabilities of Blue Triangle’s real-time performance management and monitoring, the two companies are poised to make their customers more profitable than ever before. Implementation requires a simple DNS change for the Instart Logic service and a five-minute JavaScript tag insertion for the Blue Triangle solution. You are up and running in minutes rather than weeks. Together the two companies operate in a seamless 3-step process:

Step 1: Use Blue Triangle to identify what one second means to your business.

If you are not an Instart Logic user, Blue Triangle will measure your site’s performance, create a baseline, and uncover the impact that latency has on your business. The granular analysis takes 2 weeks or less depending on your traffic volume and provides you with a clear ROI calculation. The recommendations are directly tied to Instart Logic’s power of the platform and feature capabilities (such as Image Transcoding & Adaptation, HTML & JavaScript Streaming).

Here is Blue Triangle's Business Overview Report for an outdoor retailer:

For this retailer, focusing Instart's performance improvements on the content pages will bring little additional revenue, but improving the home page by just one second would result in $40K of additional revenue per week. This unique insight allows customers to invest budget where there is the highest revenue impact.

Step 2: Implement Instart Logic and measure the business and performance improvements.

The Instart Logic team will activate the service as needed and customers can choose to either run an A/B test (Instart Logic vs current) and compare the results or drive all traffic through Instart Logic. In addition, customers can use Blue Triangle’s revenue attribution and before/after performance metrics to measure the improvements.

Here’s an example of an A/B test between Instart Logic and a legacy CDN.

Step 3: Monitor and fine tune your website's performance and Instart configuration.

Now you can reap the benefits of the joint solution. Easily manage your site’s performance all within one customer portal and find additional opportunities to speed up your site. This includes third-party tag governance, session-level analyses, and advanced reporting, as well as business and performance alerts.
