However, due to the unique nature of the China internet ecosystem, the dynamic and powerful CMS tools that powered these websites were unable to be properly reflected when loading the website from China. The problems that Novotech encountered with its tech stack and its subsequent access to its website from China included:
Slow loading speeds for users in China due to geographic hosting of the site and optimization of their assets.
Inaccessibility for users from China. Due to code based incompatibilities, some assets and resources are not accessible from China, leading to missing content on the site if not causing the site to fail to load altogether.
Their website built on Pantheon and Drupal was taking an average of 24.5 seconds to load, if at all, for their visitors in China.
Facing the urgent need to make their website accessible and optimized for China, a key market, Novotech needed Liquid Digital and the support team at Pantheon to find a solution - and fast.
This is what brought Novotech to seek Chinafy’s expert knowledge and dedicated support in making sites accessible and optimized for Chinese audiences.
Almost immediately, Novotech saw an improvement in their website loading speed.
After Chinafy, the Novotech website saw an average improvement in speed by 3.82x leading to an improvement in website engagement metrics such as reduced bounce rates.
Not to mention, it took less than two weeks to launch this website with Chinafy.
Comparing the original website against the Chinafy version in Beijing, the average Page Complete time is as follows:
Before Chinafy: 24.5 seconds
After Chinafy 6.4 seconds
