"Being mobile friendly isn't enough. People expect instant access to information—and page speed is critical to getting customers to engage with our clients' mobile sites." says Sergio from SCF. A Google study armed them with concrete data: 53% of users will leave a mobile site that takes more than 3 seconds to load, and bounce rates increase by 123% when mobile page load times increase from 1 to 10 seconds.
After researching AMP ability to combine blazing speed with rich functionality, SCF considered implementing AMP pages as part of the plans for developing their mobile site. In fact, in 2018, the majority of traffic for SCF was on mobile. Then, they built a full PWA experience to continue engaging customers beyond the AMP landing pages. They supposed AMP pages would engage potential customers at the beginning of their journey, and then PWA functionality would help customer remain loyal to the brand.
AMP by Ampify me enables SCF to build pages that always contain the essential e-commerce elements, including product specs, brand attributes, product photos, etc.
Since Progressive Web AMPs load instantly, are extremely stable and smooth, and most important keep the customer's attention, they created a ultimate mobile experience.

Implementing AMP delivered significant speed improvements to SCF's mobile web experience. Page-load speeds decreased from more than 6 seconds to less than one second with AMP."
For all their web traffic, SCF saw 65% faster page load times, 27% longer session duration and a 24% more pages per session, on their new AMP pages with mobile users going about one page deeper into the website when starting out on AMP pages.
