IRVINE, CA (BRAIN) — Shimano says its retailer tech training website now loads as fast as "Di2 electronic derailleurs shift."
Shimano launched the TEC site in June 2011. Since then, user traffic has slowed page load time to a crawl. The company worked with its web partner, Sparc Retail, to make some major code changes to speed up performance wihout taking the site down.
The company said its speed increase comes just in time for employee-purchase holiday shopping. Users get increased discount points for completing training modules, but those point levels reset at the end of the year, so the company is reminding participants to shop now.
