SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 27, 2012--
Competitive Research, the industry analysis group of Keynote®
(NASDAQ: KEYN), today announced that in honor of the London 2012 Games
it will hold its own International Summer Games for Mobile Retailers.
Beginning next week Keynote will publicly announce the top three
performing mobile retail websites from around the world based on its ‘Keynote
Mobile Retail Index – World Edition,’ an index assessing the
download speed and reliability of leading mobile retail sites as
measured on smartphones from different countries around the world.
The company will name Gold, Silver and Bronze winners based on the top
scoring sites on the index each week. The index score is a combination
of each site’s average speed and reliability as measured 24 x 7 over the
previous seven days. Reporters and analysts wishing to receive the names
of the winning mobile retail websites each Tuesday over the next three
weeks should email Dan Berkowitz at email@example.com
and request receipt of the latest results. To view the “Keynote Mobile
Retail Index – World Edition” click on: http://bit.ly/xiWEL5.
Keynote Mobile Retail Index - World Edition shows the average
response times, success rates and a composite score for downloading the
homepage of selected sites of retailers using Mobile
Web Perspective® over Air. Keynote repeatedly tests the sites in the
index hourly and around the clock over two Tier 1 wireless networks in
each country (Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, UK and US) over
popular smartphones. The retail sites that appear in the Index were
selected to provide an industry benchmark for well-known company sites.
“Mobile technology will be put to the test during the London 2012 Games.
Keynote’s ongoing research regarding consumer satisfaction levels for
accessing Web content over smartphones and tablets shows that much work
still remains to be done, not only by retailers, but by companies in
many important industries,” said Ren Bloom, vice president of marketing
at Keynote. “We believe the London 2012 Games is an ideal time to shine
a competitive light on mobile retail; one of the fastest growing and
most important industry sectors benefiting from the consumer move to
mobile, yet still experiencing significant performance pains.”
