Uptrends performance monitoring for your company.

Your website should load fast, be always available and function correctly

As a company with an online presence, excellent uptime and site performance are critical. As soon as your visitors, users or customers experience downtime, slow web pages, failures with shopping carts, servers that are not up or registration forms that aren’t working properly, they will often resort to another service provider, resulting in a loss of site visitors, leads, customers and revenue. Most companies are using applications on their sites from a number of different providers such as internal search engines, registration forms, shopping carts and payment solutions. Everything on your site can work perfectly, but a single application from a third party solution provider can cause problems during the order process. Uptrends can verify all the steps of any online transaction and verify the full availability and page load time of each page on your site.

Forrester Consulting published a research report showing that two seconds is the new threshold in terms of an average online shopper's expectation for a web page to load. Additionally, research from Google and Microsoft shows that a delay of just 0.5 seconds will cause:

  • More bounce rates
  • Lower search engine ranking in Google
  • Less pageviews
  • Less revenue per visitor

The following table shows the impact of downtime:

Annual Uptime Annual Downtime Business Days 95% 438 hours Almost 3 weeks 99% 87 hours, 36 minutes Almost 4 days 99.9% 8 hours, 45 minutes A whole business day 99.99% 53 minutes

Uptrends can monitor your website, shopping carts, internal search engine, registration forms from an end-user perspective. With data collected and reported by Uptrends, you can improve the uptime and performance of your website and online shop. You will have more visitors, more satisfied customers and even an increase in revenue.
