Advantages of Shopware PWA

Why do you need Shopware PWA? To answer the question, let’s take a look at the Shopware platform’s features and advantages to evaluate whether Shopware PWA is significant for your online business:

1. High Loading Speed

Shopware PWA offers high performance

The slow loading speed of an E-commerce site can cause low conversion rates as customers leave the site if it takes much time to load. In contrast to that, Shopware PWA offers high performance for your online store. Shopware PWA uses advanced techniques like ‘data prefetching’ and ‘edge catching’ which makes it possible to bring data closer to the user’s device instead of a server with a network. They make use of the Cache API and JS Service Worker files to provide text, pictures, and other content quickly and proficiently. The loading time is reduced to milliseconds and the E-commerce store operates flawlessly with or without connectivity.

2. Reduced App size

Users usually refrain from installing mobile applications with large storage sizes as they may slow down the phone speed. PWAs efficiently address the issue of native apps that are extremely high in size. When compared to native applications, PWAs take up very little space.

3. Easy device installation

Instead of going via the Play Store, App Store, Windows Store, and other stores, users can instantly access the service or content through a desktop icon by installing the app directly through Shopware PWA. You get the “Add to Home screen” option. Thus, you can simplify and speed up the installation process, making it easier for your customers to use. Also, PWAs get updated automatically.

4. Shortened process

In the E-commerce business, the restocking procedure is always challenging and difficult. But Shopware PWA can handle it smartly taking advantage of some amazing technologies. Since it puts the webshop to the shelves and eliminates any intermediary steps, getting out-of-stock items from the warehouse has become simple. It also has a barcode scanner option that integrates with your customer’s mobile cameras for making “Add to cart” and paying options quicker and easier.

5. Offline mode

Shopware PWA can impeccably work offline without any internet connection. The content is stored by the in-built service workers, so users do not have to download it again and again, and they can access it even when offline.

6. Cross-browser and cross-device compatibility

Whichever device you use, smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, etc., PWAs can operate perfectly on every device. They can also run seamlessly on every browser and can connect with your device’s internals, such as the camera, GPS sensors, and so on, just like native mobile apps.
