Page load time is money. Amazon found that 100 ms of additional load time cost them 1% of annual revenue – over $1.7 billion every year. Similarly, Google measured that 500 ms of additional page load time decrease ad revenues by 20%. If all shops loaded 1 s faster, the global e-commerce revenue would be $284000000000 higher.
Speed Kit accelerates websites by 50–300% through an easy-to-add script. It optimizes website traffic with novel caching algorithms, to dramatically improve both page loads and navigation. The speed-up leads to increased conversions, time-on-site, and user satisfaction. Once Speed Kit is included, it keeps the website state-of-the-art in web performance. With Baqend Platform, new websites and mobile apps can be developed directly against a distributed cloud backend to achieve optimal performance right from the start.
As a research spin-off, we have the mission to redefine web performance and make instant loading ubiquitous. Therefore we built a team of the best developers we could possibly find. Currently twelve people are working on Baqend's vision of a faster web.
