Want to #Occupy a top spot amongst the best banking and financial mobile websites? If you look at our Keynote Mobile Financial Services Index, the lesson is clear – focus on the 99%. Smartphone and tablet users should be able to successfully download your website 99% of the time. It’s a valuable lesson for anyone who wants to have their website outperform the competition. What’s more, it’s a lesson that goes beyond Banking and Financial Services websites.
You can largely ignore the other 1% because it might not be attainable for reasons beyond your control. Not because of a conspiracy of the rich, but for the mere fact that mobile networks are inherently less reliable than their fixed-line counterparts. Carrier (operator) networks might let you down up to 1% of the time, but two 9’s of reliability are within your control.
If your mobile website can’t successfully download 99% of the time, chances are that you need to take action to improve the availability of your content for customers. Thoughtful site design and pre-deployment testing are important.
But also know that you don’t have to be a Fat Cat to afford around-the-clock monitoring to ensure that downtime is minimized. Basic and affordable monitoring with Keynote Mobile Web PerspectiveTM will let you know when your mobile website goes down and alert your teams to reduce mean time to repair. Pay a little attention to your mobile website and camp out amongst the top sites in a Keynote index.
