Groupon has deployed Limelight Network’s web site acceleration services to maximize site performance and improve its online experience. After implementing these services in August of this year, Groupon noticed a substantial increase in site speed — a crucial factor to the success of their daily deals. “Site speed is critical to our customer experience and online conversions,” said Shinji Kuwayama, Director of Engineering, Groupon. “After evaluating several options, we found Limelight to have reliable, flexible services to meet our business needs. Since employing their solution, our performance has increased, and we look for more ways to use the service.” In just two years, the deal-of-the-day company has expanded to nearly 300 cities and 31 countries. To meet increased demands and ensure optimum site performance for their growing user base, Groupon turned to Limelight Networks.
