Rivet Works Accelerator

You feel the need.

The need.

For speed.

Users love fast websites. Google ranks snappy websites higher. Merchants may sell more if their sites perform more quickly.

 

At Rivet Works, we like things to move fast, too.

 

Introducing Accelerator. Accelerator is a powerful trio of technologies that are purpose-built to ensure your customers stories load lightning fast.

 

While beautiful and compelling to your customers, photos and videos can sometimes take longer to load than consumers want. Accelerator solves this problem by combining three cutting edge capabilities — media edge caching, photo scaling, and video playback optimization — to ensure those engaging visuals shared by your customers are fast … really fast.

Will Google give me credit for a faster-loading site?
