Flipkart is India’s Biggest E-Commerce Company serving over 100 Million Customers and also Flipkart gets millions of visits each month. The website design and all the responsive factors of a site play a very crucial role in the success of any online service providing company. So, companies generally prefer UX/UI friendly websites and Flipkart has made a big move to achieve this in form of Flipkart Lite.
To get a high conversion rate from its large amount of Mobile phone users, Flipkart with the help of Google has developed a Light-Weight Version of Flipkart which is actually an App designed as Website. This type of Web App is known as Progressive Web Apps (PWA).
The developers at Google have given it a better term as;
PWA + Web Sites = Progressive Web Sites (PWS)
Flipkart aims at achieving high conversion rate and if the reports are to be believed the outcomes are very fruitful with around 70% jump in the conversion rate for actual purchase as compared to earlier mobile site version.
Fact: This Web App is built by 5 Engineers in 42 days.
Progressive Web Apps are regular web pages or websites but they appear to the user like traditional applications or native applications developed for mobile. The PWA is faster than natively built App.
