BOSTON, June 12, 2018 — As brands strive to deliver more engaging digital experiences, Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are gaining momentum. Perfecto, the leading continuous testing and monitoring platform for optimizing DevOps pipelines, is the first cloud-based testing platform provider to support automated testing of PWAs. Perfecto supports early PWA adopters who are testing PWAs across desktop and mobile platforms.
Early reports demonstrate PWAs improve user experience, grow engagement and increase conversions. PWAs offer users the ability to use sites while offline, receive push notifications and access platform features like cameras, microphone, speakers, data storage, and GPS. These capabilities are propelling PWA adoption and enriching website experiences with capabilities previously only available with hybrid and native mobile apps.
PWA adoption is expected to increase. In a recent survey conducted by Perfecto, 41 percent of respondents plan to add PWA capability to their sites already following responsive web design (RWD) over the next 12 months with an additional 32 percent actively researching the shift. Organizations across all industries are recognizing PWA benefits. One major e-commerce site reported a 76 percent increase in mobile web conversions with 14 percent more active monthly users on iOS and 30 percent more on Android. A leading business magazine publisher redesigned their mobile experience as a PWA, resulting in a 43 percent increase in sessions per user.
“PWA is one of the latest web development market innovations being embraced today after responsive web design to enhance user experience,” said Roi Carmel, chief strategy officer at Perfecto. “Our Automation Coverage Extension capabilities provide us the architectural advantage to provide DevOps teams with what they need to automate PWA testing to deliver flawless user experiences.”
Automating PWA testing requires support for unique PWA use cases. Perfecto supports the following PWA use cases. Collectively, they help teams implement continuous testing and achieve velocity objectives.
