Flipkart's Progressive Web App (PWA) is driving 50% of new customer acquisitions (and transactions) from rural India.
“This (web app) results in very low data consumption and subsequent page loads for repeat visits happen in less than one second, even on 2G and 3G networks or lower-end devices. Around 60% of visitors to Flipkart's mobile web had uninstalled the app earlier, primarily due to lack of device storage space," said Amar Nagaram, vice-president, engineering, Flipkart (via).
