Today Vancouver-based Strangeloop Networks announced its latest product – Mobile Site Optimizer – the first website acceleration solution designed from the ground up to meet the specific needs of mobile users.
Mobile Site Optimizer (MSO) – which is currently in beta and will be available in Q4 of this year – is the latest in a series of industry firsts for Strangeloop. The company was also the first to offer advanced site optimization via the cloud, as well as the first to integrate Google’s SPDY protocol into its products.
“As industry pioneers, we’ve been leading the charge since the early days of front-end optimization, and we’re thrilled to be ahead of the pack when it comes to mobile,” said Strangeloop CEO Jonathan Bixby. “Our Mobile Site Optimizer isn’t our desktop Site Optimizer with a new label. It’s a brand-new product that was built from the ground up to respond to the many unique challenges of mobile environments.”
Companies such as eBay, PayPal, Visa, PETCO, and Travelocity use Strangeloop’s advanced optimization solutions to accelerate their websites and enterprise applications. With Strangeloop's help these companies have seen significant growth in key performance indicators such as online revenue, conversions, page views, customer retention, and Google search ranking.
As is the trend right now Strangeloop was kind enough to include a handy infographic with their release today. Check it out after the jump.
Last January Strangeloop inked almost identical strategic partnerships with two significant players in the competitive content delivery network (CDN) space - Industry gorilla Akamai Technologies and upstart Level 3 Communications - companies with a combined market capitalization of $7 Billion.
Founded in 2006 by Jonathan and Joshua Bixby, Strangeloop Networks employees 45 in downtown Vancouver and are looking to add 15 new employees in the immediate future. The Bixby brothers previously co-founded IronPoint Technology which was acquired by The Active Network in 2006.
