Zycada Recognized By CB Insights And Tech Trailblazers For Industry-First E-Commerce Technology


Zycada, the company that empowers the fastest online shopping experience in the world, announced today that it has been named to the 2020 CB Insights Retail Tech 100 list of the most promising startups in retail. In addition, Zycada has been selected as a finalist in the Networking category of the Tech Trailblazers Awards, which recognize technological innovation and entrepreneurial excellence.

Zycada empowers the fastest online shopping experience via its industry-first white hat botnet technology. Zycada bots learn user interactions and use that information to work ahead of them as a personal concierge – dramatically accelerating the shopper’s experience and increasing online retail revenues. Zycada’s novel approach drives TTI (Time To Interactive) speeds 10X faster than Amazon, empowering merchants to achieve faster online shopping experiences than Amazon for the first time.

“We’re honored to be recognized by CB Insights and Tech Trailblazers for leveling the playing field in retail,” said Subbu Varadarajan, Founder and CPO, Zycada. “2020 has been an inflection point for e-commerce, and many retailers have had to scramble to accommodate the sudden shift to online shopping. We are dedicated to providing our customers with the fastest e-commerce experience using innovative technology and are proud to help them succeed.”

“The rate of change in retail is accelerating, and the Retail Tech 100 showcases the tech companies that are changing every facet of retail - from store automation to supply chain robotics to personalized merchandise discovery. Spanning 13 distinct technology markets, they address key challenges retailers face today while also helping them adapt and be ready for changing consumer habits,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “The honorees also underscore the fact that the best technologies driving retail transformation may come from anywhere as they hail from 21 countries ranging from Canada to Singapore to Brazil to Sweden. As we head into 2021, we are excited to see the impact the Retail Tech 100 will have on customers, retailers, and markets.”

Zycada launched from stealth in June of this year to introduce an innovative approach that eliminates performance bottlenecks by employing the scale and power of bot technology. By utilizing the Zycada platform, customers gain substantial improvements in TTI and page load speeds, driving higher conversion rates, revenue per session and total revenue lift. The speed boost has led to an average of 8-10% increase in revenue gains, and customers have seen revenue gains up to 33%. Delivered as a SaaS, Zycada can integrate to optimize sites or apps in under a few hours.
