Print Article

Epic Sports is an Online Discount Store that offers the largest selection of equipment, jerseys, and fan gear for soccer, football, baseball, basketball, and more. Epic Sports was looking to create a faster shopping experience on their mobile site in order to offer a more optimal experience for their customers, as well as be prepared for Google’s Core Web Vital roll-out. To achieve this, Epic Sports signed on to use Edgio Expert Services to implement Edgio AppOps.

At a Glance

Edgio's applications provided the ability to cache dynamic assets and pages at the edge, which allows responses to be served nearly instantaneously. By leveraging that cache, pages and assets can also be pre-fetched ahead of the user’s click, effectively serving the subsequent page up at sub-seconds speeds. Continued real-time monitoring of Epic Sports’ cache hit rates, routes performance, and query parameters through Edgio's platform provided easily digestible data for iterations to continually improve site performance and speed.
