Mobile Site of Office Depot Inc. (NYSE:ODP) Gets Higher Marks in Speed Than Availability

Boston, MA 06/20/2014 (wallstreetpr) – These days most of the retailers don’t find it easy to come up with a site that is good in imagery as well as in speed. Most of them use ‘image sprites’ feature to improve their efficiency. According to mobile performance specialist at Keynote, Matthew Agnoli,” Image spirits feature helps companies to combine multiple images into one file, which not only improves efficiency but also reduces loading time.”

According to a recent survey, Sears Holdings Corp. was declared as the best e-commerce site on the Internet Retailer-exclusive Keynote Mobile Commerce Performance Index. People witnessed a new name in top five companies in terms of better speed. According to reports, Office Depot Inc. (NYSE:ODP) grabbed a place in top five companies by kicking Walgreen Co. out of the group. The main reason behind ODP’s success is image sprites.

Keynote evaluates 30 companies each year on a blend of 4G, 4G LTE and 3G networks. Out of 30 companies, 28 are standalone m-commerce sites for mobile devices and 2 are  responsive design sites on mobile phones. According to a senior manager, e-commerce strategy of ODP, Gabriel Cabrera,” We are using image sprites for some time now and trying to improve our speed without putting overall performance on stack.”

Office Depot Inc. (NYSE:ODP) is looking forward to trying everything to take its performance on newer heights. These days it is working on Vector Graphics for mobile screens to make sure that users have a second to none experience while working on mobile devices. According to Keynote, the success rate  and an overall score of ODP are respectively 98.86% and 915 out of 1000. The average score and success rate in the mobile performance index is  699 and 98.27%.
