To fully understand how your customers’ complex behaviour will impact your site at peak or following new releases, today’s websites require a more realistic and accurate approach to performance testing.
Our service uniquely creates a real world load model, based on a mixture of end-to-end user journeys. We script dynamic journeys that make choices from page content as real users would – exposing all bottlenecks and performance issues. Our User Journey Load testing is performed from the user’s perspective simulating an increasing number of concurrent users carrying out multi-page transactions.
thinkTribe’s approach to testing is to reflect as close to a real-life scenario as possible. This is done through building a realistic set of user journeys, often with complex bespoke weighting calculations, that are based on the latest site usage information.
The results possible with such a representative approach are much more precise than those achievable with traditional load testing.

Most online businesses experience a peak in traffic, be that sales led or general seasonality, and need to have a preparation plan for the big day. But why do some strategies simply not work as planned and cause lost sales and bad customer experiences?Download E-book
“We were impressed by how quickly thinkTribe grasped the technology and infrastructure of our website and put together the test scripts. Their User Journey approach tested typical routes that our end users would take to purchase online. This enabled us to replicate a rare user experience problem, and provided us with hard evidence which helped to pinpoint the cause of the problem, and to later confirm it had been fixed.”
What we found in the first pass of our testing is we had a limit on capacity. ThinkTribe helped identify what we needed to work on with our Systems Integrator. By putting those changes in place we actually we were able to double the amount of volume, through from a page transaction point of view – as well as the number of customers on our site at any one time. Dramatically helping our Black Friday sales.
Consultancy was a key factor in us selecting to work with thinkTribe. Thanks to their experience, they had an in-depth understanding of our tech stack and how our supplier ecosystem operated, as well as how each tech partner integrated into our systems and each other’s.
This meant they could coordinate and brief each supplier on the exact requirements needed for all parties to comply, at the right times, with the testing procedures. Allowing the pre-test and test itself to run smoothly, allowing us to extract the most value and insight needed to enhance site performance.
