Visual Commerce is compatible with Annex Cloud’s Progressive Web App (PWA).
PWA is a website which has a look-and-feel like an application, but without an actual need of installation. Native experiences can be available on desktop and mobile devices, offering a better user experience than traditional websites.
Progressive web apps successfully help businesses increase conversions, page visits, and session length.
Leads to faster loading time of websites for end users.
Compatible to work in any browser.
Provides a custom offline page for end users to browse.
PWAs are installable as an app
These can also provide push notifications like native mobile apps.
Notifications in PWA would be supported. Annex Cloud can trigger the notifications to the end user’s application based on the user parameter. The notifications can be directly triggered to the end users upon predefined actions.
There is also a provision where the customers can use Annex Cloud APIs to trigger notifications to the end users. Customers can use API to trigger notifications after desired events. An option can be provided where Annex Cloud would push updates to the customer using their APIs or Webhooks.
