(PRWEB UK) 12 November 2013
PEER 1 Hosting, the global web infrastructure and cloud hosting provider, announces its November webinar, "Solving eCommerce Issues."
Site performance is, and always will be, the name of the game when it comes to eCommerce. In fact, KISSmetrics says 47 percent of consumers expect a web page to load in two seconds or less and two of the biggest issues plaguing eCommerce sites are page load times and speed of checkout.
In addition, according to the Baymard Institute, the average shopping cart abandonment rate of eCommerce websites is 68 percent. That means shoppers did not complete the checkout process 68 times out of 100.
The webinar panel discussion will look at these issues facing eCommerce companies online and the steps they can take to ensure their platform and infrastructure are prepared to deal with customer demands.
Dominic Monkhouse, PEER 1 Hosting's senior vice president of customer experience, will be leading the panel discussion joined by industry thought leaders and eCommerce experts, including:
- Karen Moss, editor, Retail Systems
- Martin Newman, CEO, Practicology and expert in the science of eCommerce
- Alistair Stead, technical assurance manager, Session Digital a leading Magento Enterprise Development Company
