The PWA technology aims to deliver a high level of performance in any network condition. They are fast, reliable, and increase customer engagement. These app-like websites are alluring to many business owners, and many are making the switch.
Here are some of the best examples of progressive web apps in 2022.
The goal was to create a user-friendly online ordering system for their customers. That is why Starbucks built a progressive web app for the ordering system on the web. It offers the same experience as their existing native app, i.e., it runs offline.
Customers can browse the menu, customize their orders, and add items to their carts, even without consistent access to the internet. It is especially helpful for customers who are ordering on the go and may not have access to the internet constantly. They have already seen significant results too! The PWA is 99.84% smaller than the existing native apps, which has doubled the number of users who are placing orders each day.
BMW is one of the leading brands in the automobile industry and still embraces new technology. They opted for PWAs to enhance the customer experience. They wanted to provide quality and engaging content that aligns with their values.
They have added high-resolution images and videos, and it loads almost instantaneously as well. After using progressive web apps, they have observed a 4x increase in the number of people going from the homepage to a BMW sales site. They have also noticed a 50% growth in mobile users and 49$ more visits than the old website.
MakeMyTrip displays one of the best examples of how to utilize a PWA. they have about eight million visitors on their site per month, and mobile users account for two-thirds of the traffic. They decided to switch to PWA as mobile devices were becoming the preferred platform for visiting the MakeMyTrip platform. The PWA is fast, reliable, and provides a sleek mobile experience.
Using a progressive web app has tripled the conversion rate, and the loading time has been reduced by 38%. It has reduced the bounce rate by 20% and also found an increase in user sessions by 160%.
Uber wanted to rebuild its website from scratch as it was going to expand into new markets. They decided to go with a PWA as it provided a comparable booking experience to the native apps. With PWA, users can book a car even on low-speed 2G networks. It is amazing for riders with low-end devices that may not be compatible with Uber’s native app.
The web app is super-lightweight. Developing a PWA enables quick ride requests no matter the rider’s location, network speed, or device. The PWA is about 50kB and loads within 3 seconds for 2G networks.
So, these are some examples of how PWA has proved to be helpful for businesses. These are not all; there are many more,s like Pinterest, Padpiper, Spotify, Yummly, etc., that have used PWAs to their benefit.
