Since BMW focuses on customer centricity in everything they do, same was the plan for attracting maximum car enthusiasts towards the new website. Built around high-performance technologies, the new data-driven website incorporated high-quality images, full-screen videos and interactive design to meet the high expectations of users.
1. Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)
Being an open-source HTML library, AMP enables developers to create compelling yet fast web pages. Currently used by tech giants such as Google & Twitter, it offers interactive capabilities such as filters, product search and infinite scroll. Leveraging AMP, BMW was able to deliver high-quality content to its users without compromising load times. Since speed plays a key role in terms of ranking a website, BWM’s digital agency considered it at the heart of every decision.
2. Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)
PWAs offer rapid, reliable, seamless and secure web experiences, enabling businesses to attract more users, drive engagement and augment conversion rates. By adhering to best indexability practices, progressive web apps are given preference by search engines. Offering immersive experiences, PWAs drive engagement and ensure security at scale.
By using both of these advance technologies, BMW’s website enjoyed tangible business benefits. AMP served great when onboarding users and serving valuable content at a rapid pace whereas PWA components help users to transit swiftly and smoothly into more dynamic sections of the site. BMW raised the bar for other automotive brands by offering an unparalleled website experience to its users and experienced the best outcomes after adopting a consumer-first approach.
