It’s very rewarding to see our retail brands grow and shatter past holiday performances and know that Virid played a key role in that success.

Virid, a leading provider of eCommerce solutions for retail brands, announced record setting performance for its’ customers using the end-to-end marketAgility cloud solution that includes platform, responsive website, hosting, and support.

Shopping on mobile devices increased significantly this holiday shopping season. According to Adobe Digital Insights, Black Friday became the first day in retail history to drive over $1 billion in mobile revenue, a 33% growth from 2015. For retailers using marketAgility, mobile revenue increased by an average of 50% from 2015 to 2016. Conversion rates on mobile devices exceeded the industry average by 42%.

Built with industry best practices in mind, Virid’s award winning, fully responsive websites are designed to maximize conversions and streamline the online shopping experience across all devices. The marketAgility platform is built to seamlessly handle spikes in traffic and order volume by taking advantage of the stability of Microsoft Azure cloud hosting.

Unlike some large retailers, marketAgility customers enjoyed 100% uptime during the holiday weekend, as reported by third-party website monitoring service Site24x7. Customers’ websites had an average response time (time to first byte) of 288 milliseconds (0.288 seconds) during the five day shopping period, exceeding the industry average of 500 milliseconds.

“At Virid, we succeed when our customers succeed,” said Steve Deller, CEO of Virid. “We work closely with our customers to make sure they are prepared for high volume periods, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s very rewarding to see our retail brands grow and shatter past holiday performances and know that Virid played a key role in that success. We congratulate all of our customers on their strong performance.”
