The Future of eCommerce
PROGRESSIVE WEB APP CAN LEAD TO A 70% INCREASE IN CONVERSIONS
In Retail, a fast and smooth online experience can translate directly into an increase in revenue. It’s the reason why many retailers are now turning to Progressive Web Apps – a hybrid between a web page and a native mobile application. Look no further than Flipkart, India’s largest e-Commerce site, which tripled the time users spent on the site and achieved a 70% increase in conversions when they decided to combine their web presence and native app into a Progressive Web App.

SF APPWORKS PROTOTYPED A PROGRESSIVE WEB APP FOR A FORTUNE 500 RETAILER WITH OVER $4B IN REVENUE
We recently completed a Progressive Web App prototype for a Fortune 500 retailer with over $4B in revenue. We used Google’s Progressive Web Technology to create a web experience that loads with the speed and fluidity of a native application. They were so thrilled with the results that they extended our engagement to integrate the technology into their main website.
WHAT IS A PROGRESSIVE WEB APP?
Progressive Web Apps burst onto the scene after a 2015 Google Chrome Dev Summit speech given by Google developer Alex Russel. In his speech, he introduces Progressive Web Apps as digital experiences that combine the best of the web and native apps. They are useful from the first time a user visits a site with no install required, they improve with each subsequent visit, they load quickly even on a flaky network, and they can send relevant push notifications.
