1-800-Flowers opened its first flower shop over 40 year ago, and has grown to become a multi-brand, omni-channel floral and gifting empire bringing in $1.25B in revenue in 2019. 1-800-Flowers is delighting customers with a lightning-fast mobile experience to customers with an eCommerce progressive web app (PWA) on the Moovweb XDN.

The flowers and gifts giant went from a desktop-first responsive website to a sub-second eCommerce PWA, which lifted conversions by a whopping 50% over the traditional website. These amazing results, along with the unprecedented speeds of their PWA, won the gifting and flower giant the spotlight at Google I/O 2018.

A year later, 1-800-Flowers took advantage of the new support for PWAs in the Google Play Store, and within hours they transformed their eCommerce PWA into one that can be downloaded from the Play Store (i.e a trusted web application, or TWA). This TWA was split tested against the retailer’s expensive-to-maintain native Android app, and was found to boost conversions by 30%. These results motivated the company to pull its expensive, outdated native app from the Play Store in favor for the new TWA, which became the first of its kind to be featured on the marketplace and showcased at Google I/O 2019.

1-800-Flower’s instant PWA on the Moovweb XDN out-performs the traditional website by 50% and the native Android app by 30%.
First page-loads before and on the Moovweb XDN

1-800-Flowers completely transformed its mobile shopping experience with its instant eCommerce website. It went from a desktop-first responsive website with a 4.5 second first-page load time to a sub-second PWA on the Moovweb XDN. With automatic AMP conversion, the PWA’s first-page loads from search are a mere 300ms, and with server-side rendering, the first-page load from every other channel is just north of one second. Not to mention, the site’s browsing speed has a median of 320ms — which is literally as fast as the blink of an eye.  

These speed increases alone drove a 50% conversion lift, market share growth, and double-digit percentage increase in organic traffic and revenue.

PWAs are known for the speedy browsing transitions, but their first-page loads are actually longer than those of traditional sites. Meaning to say that while PWA technology can take a website from slow-to-fast, optimizing the frontend alone simply cannot get you to instant. Only a full stack solution for website speed, like the Moovweb XDN, can get you there.

The Moovweb XDN lets developers easily optimize speed across the browser, edge, and server from a single JavaScript codebase. By combining portable, PWA frontends with a serverless JavaScript platform, a backend for frontend, and CDN-as-Code, the Moovweb XDN lets developers squeeze every millisecond out of every optimization effort across the stack. The result: the fastest websites on the market.

When you browse through 1-800-Flowers.com, it feels like the entire catalogue is already on your phone. This is done by caching the website’s dynamic content at the edge for 5 minutes, which allows the browser to stay 5 seconds ahead of the shopper and deliver immediate results. By caching the content as close to the customer’s physical location as you possible can (the CDN edge) you significantly reduce the effort and load times for the browser to sub-second levels.

The Moovweb XDN delivers no excuses instant eCommerce websites. Have dynamic pricing, real-time inventory, and dozens of campaign tags on your pages? No problem. The Moovweb XDN is the only solution that consistently delivers sub-second speeds for complex, dynamic enterprise eCommerce websites.
