Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is an American multinational retail corporation which deals with chain of large discount department stores and wholesale stores. It has an interesting feature. As a culture they do not bother much about following the chalked out strategies considered to be the best practices when judged from the point of view of recommended mobile performance blue book. But strangely the site is always positioned very close to the top 10 performers every week from the point of Keynote Mobile Commerce Performance Index.
Matt Agnoli, a well known mobile performance evangelist at Keynote, a mobile and web performance testing, monitoring and analytics firm, said though Wal-mart is not considered as a top ranking organization from the aspect of mobile performance, it has enough facets to offer a comfortable mobile Shopping experience to its new and existing customers. Angoli also commented that Walmart’s site is very well built and rich in content which also supports its mobile site performance. However Wal-Mart professionals were reluctant to make any comment on this particular issue when asked.
Mobile performance index is dependent on various factors like response time, availability, total page element and many more things. Keynote measures smartphone versions of various sites. It works on behalf of Internet Retailer and also other m-commerce websites. They also consider Wal-Mart as s successful player in mobile performance.
Wal-Mart has a good score though it is not following the hard and fast rules of enhancing mobile performance. This indicates in mobile performance the various technical factors like quality, speed availability matters a lot. And that is why it always has a good score that reflects desired performance gradation.
Therefore, in this technology driven society where more and more people are inclining towards smartphones companies like Wal-Mart which automatically scores high in mobile performance will always be in a scoring height.
