Description

Thanks to TwicPics and its connector for Akeneo, deliver perfectly optimized images directly from your Akeneo PIM to boost your websites' performances and offer an optimal experience to every user.

WHY TWICPICS?

Websites are heavier than ever, and the main culprits are images. They eat up network bandwidth and increase the time visitors spend waiting for pages to load. Because every passing tenth of a second reduces the overall conversion rate of your website, it dramatically impacts your brand's reputation and revenue online.

That is where TwicPics comes in.

TwicPics is a real-time media processing service that enables individuals and businesses of all sizes to deliver rich and optimized visual content.

TwicPics resizes images, reduces their file size with adaptive compression, and automatically applies the WebP Next-Gen format to boost your website performances and its SEO by delivering pixel-perfect media on the fly.

With TwicPics, your images are now perfect in every circumstance.

WHAT IS TWICPICS?

TwicPics is a Responsive Image Service Solution (SaaS). It offers on-demand responsive image generation combined with a well-thought-out and unobtrusive JavaScript library, all based around a URL-based API.
