The website

The Challenges

Like the majority of websites in China, the Probi site initially faced a number of web incompatibility issues. This resulted in various pain points including -

Their CMS Umbraco’s themes not displaying fully, as intended.

Their videos & media assets not delivering via inaccessible players such as YouTube

Slow loading times, often taking 12+ seconds for anything to load visually

Timeout errors correlated with a high bounce rate

Even with its use of the Microsoft Azure CDN, Probi’s visitor experience was still notably slower in China than elsewhere, if not broken for the most part.

Note: Not all CDNs perform the same, especially in China).

As China continues to grow more health-conscious than ever, Probi was determined to turn 1.3 billion population into its biggest APAC market.

And where better to start, than a functional website.

The Numbers

Before Chinafy: Visually broken and loaded at up to 20 seconds

After Chinafy: Visually complete at 6.3 seconds

After Chinafy, Probi achieved notable improvement across multiple indicators.

This includes Page Complete times that are 3.2x faster than before Chinafy.

After Chinafy, the website looks and feels almost the same as the original from China – with the notable difference being that the website is now 3.2x faster and more optimised, visibly with Chinafy.

Looks just the same, except better.

Their improvement in China came with an additional bonus.

After Chinafy, the website now loads fast and fully including video content delivery. Chinafy applies rule-based smart action to convert YouTube videos on the Probi website into their non-branded China-friendly versions.
