CDNetworks chosen by Made.com to accelerate furniture buying throughout Europe

Made.com increases website performance just in time for January sales

Made.com, the London-based provider of direct-from-the-maker designer furniture, chose CDNetworks to enhance their user’s online shopping experience all over Europe.  CDNetworks is helping Made.com achieve this by decreasing website page load times during and after their peak holiday shopping and post holiday sales period.

“The online-only shopping model offers designer furniture for a fraction of the price, but also requires our website user experience to be the best possible,” said Jonathan Howell, CTO, MADE.COM. “This is why we chose CDNetworks to accelerate our website throughout Europe, offering customers a fast online shopping experience.”

Made.com’s website showcases great furniture design using rich content including high resolution photos, videos, color swatching and granulated searching. All of these enhanced website features could cause slower web page loading. By utilising CDNetworks, the content is brought closer to customers at a lower cost than running it in multiple datacenters. Made.com will perform in France, Italy and the Netherlands at the same speed as in the UK, even during January sales traffic spikes.  CDNetworks will also manage traffic fluctuations automatically.

“We are pleased to have such a prestigious online shopping site running on CDNetworks,” said Alex Nam, Country Manager, EMEA, CDNetworks. “With CDNetworks quick implementation services, we will have Made.com ready for their busiest season.”
