News – January 2013

We start the new year with a bunch of changes to speed up responsiveness.

Performance Improvements

As the web site has become more popular, we’ve noticed that responsiveness at peak times has not been as good as we like to see. Hence, we have made a substantial number of changes to the web site to make pages load more quickly and to speed up page updates. In particular, loading key pages of the web site, such as the home page, tenancy balance page, property account page, should now be significantly faster.

The following chart shows the average response time improvements from our tests.

The tests also identified a number of other potential improvements that we will roll in over the course of the next few months.
