Poor website performance online florist Prestige Flowers on Valentine’s Day

Since it is Valentine’s Day today, Uptrends Website Monitoring will be releasing the results of a website monitoring performance study concerning 23 online florists. Over the last 24 hours, we monitored the home pages of these online retailers to determine if their web shops were available for (potential) customers.

Of the 23 surveyed online florists, 20 scored an excellent performance rating with an uptime of 100%. Some of these shops are ArenaFlowers, Debenhams Flowers, iflorist, Interflora and Simply Thank You.

3 of the monitored shops showed a poor outcome. The website of eFlorist.co.uk showed an uptime of 98.59% which resulted in an inaccessibility of 21 minutes in the last 24 hours. ValentinesFlowersDelivery.co.uk was the second least available with an uptime of 98.16% (27 minutes downtime). Online florist Prestige Flowers showed the worst performance with an uptime of 94.22%. In the last 24 hours this florist was inaccessible for 1 hour and 26 minutes. Yesterday afternoon between 1.00 – 3.00 PM, customers could visit the website already poorly, but the main inaccessibility was this Valentines morning between 10.00 – 12.00 AM. 

Because visitors could not achieve the website of Prestige Flowers optimal, this should have led to a loss of revenue since they were less able to receive orders via the web shop.
