Faster Page Load Times = Better SEO,
Lower Bounce Rate and Higher Conversions.

Faster page load times are always a good goal for your website, but did you know the impact of load times on conversion and bounce rate?

Users expect pages to load in 3-5 seconds, or they will start to abandon, but the average image-heavy website takes at least 8-10 seconds. This disconnect can cost eCommerce sites millions in lost sales!

Google and other experts agree that since more than 50% of payload is images, then cutting image payload is one of the best ways to improve web performance. ImageEngine helps its customer cut seconds off page load time, improve SEO, reduce bounce rates, and most importantly, increase revenues.

Streamline Image Management

Streamlined Responsive Image Management

ImageEngine drastically simplifies your image development process. Only one master version of an image is needed. The rest is automatic.

Streamline your responsive image workflow. With ImageEngine, you can cut huge portions of responsive image code down to a single image reference, but still get the same responsive benefits.

No more manual calculation of breakpoints and appropriate sizes for each of your images. ImageEngine detects the device model and its screen attributes to generate an image perfectly optimized for that device.

ImageEngine eliminates 90% of the responsive image process and costs so developer resources can be used on more strategically valuable projects.
