F5 Helps Averitt Express

SEATTLE -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced that Averitt Express increased performance of its web-based self-service freight booking applications using the F5 BIG-IP® WebAccelerator™ solution. Upon deployment, Averitt’s customers reported a measurable improvement in website responsiveness almost immediately.

Averitt Express, which services over 100 countries, is a leading freight transportation and supply chain management company. Following an upgrade of the company’s web self-service applications, Averitt customers experienced a slowdown in online booking performance, which led to a 30 percent drop in traffic.

“We live in a ‘serve me now’ society,” said Tony McBroom, Internet Development Leader at Averitt. “Our customers mandate that we provide efficient web services.” Averitt chose BIG-IP WebAccelerator to boost site performance and improve user experience. WebAccelerator is a web application delivery solution that helps organizations overcome performance issues involving browsers, web application platforms, and wide area network (WAN) latency. “We saw an immediate improvement in site performance when we deployed BIG-IP WebAccelerator,” added McBroom.
