PacketZoom’s Mobile Expresslane eliminates 70% of mobile disconnections and increases image views by 10%
SAN MATEO, Calif., April 6, 2017
– Today, PacketZoom
released its case study with Sephora, the leader in global beauty retail, on the integration of PacketZoom Mobile Expresslane, improving mobile engagement and sales for Sephora’s international customers.
Sephora’s newly launched mobile shopping app for South-East Asia was experiencing latency issues, a common problem for apps on cellular and wifi networks in any region. PacketZoom’s SDK was integrated in less than an hour and immediately improved mobile performance across the app.
“As pioneer in the use of mobile in beauty we always look for new technologies to enhance our mobile app and benefit our customers,” said Lorenzo Peracchione, Regional Director of Mobile Commerce at Sephora Digital SEA. “PacketZoom’s simple integration showed immediate improvement in speed up and continuity, allowing our mobile app users to enjoy a smooth experience without interruptions.”
Sephora saw an immediate ROI and significant boost in user engagement, including a 10 percent increase in image views. Sephora’s app immediately ran two times faster across 3G, LTE and WiFi networks, and 63 percent of sessions with network-driven disconnections were rescued.
“PacketZoom’s in-app networking technology allows us to improve our app speed, reduce disconnects and offer our customers the optimized user experience they deserve and expect,” added Peracchione.
With Asia-Pacific boasting more than one billion mobile users, the market is ripe with opportunity for retailers that have an optimized mobile presence. The mobile phone penetration rate in the region is expected to reach 69.4% by 2019. Disconnections are highly disruptive to the end user experience and PacketZoom quickly eliminates and optimizes mobile performance to improve sales by complementing and automatically offloading mobile content caching from the CDN; also resulting in lower CDN bills.
