Product Update: The Need for Speed


We recently completed a huge upgrade for Banjo and you probably have already noticed the difference. 

We made a variety of improvements and upgrades to our servers that resulted in the speed of Banjo increasing in a major way. Some average page load times are below to give you some context.

Most Banjo users visit the following pages or perform these actions each time they log into Banjo, so we are using these to showcase the improvements. But all of the different pages and features of Banjo benefited and will load with similar speed!

Home page:

  • Old page load time was 3.5 seconds.
  • New page load time is now 1.2 seconds.
  • That’s a 2.3 second improvement or about a 192% increase in performance!

Checkout page:

  • Old page load time was 6.6 seconds.
  • New page load time is now 1.2 seconds.
  • That’s a 5.4 second improvement or about a 450% increase in performance!

Document rendering:

This happens when you customize a document and preview it. When you do that, Banjo actually takes the document template, the custom content you’ve entered, and merges it all together in real time to create a print-ready document. So it’s somewhat of a complex process, as you can imagine.

  • Old rendering time was 14.7 seconds.
  • New rendering time is 10.9 seconds.
  • That’s a 3.8 second improvement or about a 35% improvement in performance!
