The problem

Chiltern Railways website had previously been developed offshore and had an unstable website which would go down irregularly and would take 20 seconds to load the homepage.

The solution provided by FC

We applied code optimisation and caching to reduce the homepage loading time to just over 1 second.  We also helped stabilise the website and reduce the downtime by applying technical efficiencies and coding updates which reduced the load on the site with the existing hardware.

Technology

Chiltern Railways website is managed by Chiltern railways staff using a well established Content Management System.
