When it comes to online commerce, factors such as slow websites, poor security and hard-to-find products all combine to increase shopping-cart abandonment, drive away users and hurt the bottom line. Verizon Digital Media Services now offers an integrated solution for eCommerce, aimed at helping resolve these critical issues for online retailers.
This eCommerce solution includes several Verizon Digital Media Services products including acceleration, security, edge intelligence and device detection. At the core of the solution is Verizon Transact, a global PCI-certified acceleration network dedicated to e-commerce customers and partitioned from the global Internet, insulating it from the congestion and security issues that often afflict the web.
One of the largest home-improvement online retailers, Build.com, recently made the switch to the Verizon Digital Media Services commerce solution. Offering more than 700,000 unique products, Build.com uses the solution to provide an efficient, secure platform.
“Build.com delivers smarter home-improvement choices for its customers by making it easier to find the right products and information to complete any type of home-improvement project. Our business depends on robust technology solutions to power a rewarding customer experience at lightning-fast speeds,” says Dan Davis, vice president of technology at Build.com. “Not only does the Verizon Digital Media Services commerce solution ensure high availability of our site and its applications — even during unexpected spikes in traffic — it intelligently serves content based on the user device, and it helps protect our digital assets against malicious activity.”
