Prepare for Peak

Peak trading periods put unprecedented pressure on eCommerce business systems, but there is no worse time for your sites or apps to go down.

Our Prepare for Peak solution ensures you can meet the demand head-on for maximum profit and optimum user experience.

The Challenge

Sales peaks and product launches should be the most exciting and rewarding times for online businesses, with IT seamlessly supporting planned and unplanned peaks in demand. But all too often, what should be a business high becomes a headache, thanks to crashes, site outages, load-times reduced to a crawl, and dissatisfied customers.

Significant peaks can mean over 10x higher traffic volumes than normal trading

As more downloads and traffic flow through your site, your ability to meet peak demand is jeopardised

Failing to manage peak demand causes serious revenue and reputation damage

Diverting staff to manage peak demand can incur significant costs
