SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CDNetworks announces Cloud Image Optimization for ecommerce websites that utilize high quality product images to engage shoppers. With CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration and Cloud Image Optimization, North American retailer Blinds to Go is decreasing image download times and improving overall website speeds, which leads to a better shopping experience and higher conversions.
High resolution images provide a great online user experience where customers can see product details and usage scenarios. But, they can also slow a website down. Slower websites are proven to decrease conversions as busy shoppers lose patience and leave for the competition. CDNetworks Cloud Image Optimization allows ecommerce websites to automatically optimize image performance on the fly, depending on device, thus ensuring a fast user experience whether accessed on a desktop, tablet, or smart phone.
North America retailer Blinds to Go is the perfect ecommerce candidate for Cloud Image Optimization. With big, beautiful product images and inspirational photos of the products in use, the website would often load slowly on mobile devices. Blinds to Go started on CDNetworks global network and immediately realized gains in speed for the overall website. Implementing Cloud Image Optimization reduces download speeds by another 50-80% on desktops and mobile.
"We realize the importance of a good user experience," said Govind Kanara, IT Project Leader, Blinds to Go. "Our online customers not only want a clear picture of the product, they also want an efficient experience with the website. Our two-pronged approach of employing a CDN and optimizing images enhances the user experience, thus increasing conversions from browsing to purchasing."
Cloud Image Optimization is Integrated with CDNetworks, so no engineering is required. Images can be stored locally in a customer's data center or in CDNetworks' Cloud Storage. Cloud Image Optimization works for any image heavy website including ecommerce, travel, consumer goods, fashion, luxury goods, and consumer apps.
