Intechnica to reveal results of four years of monitoring Grand National betting sites and apps

Intechnica, the IT Performance Experts, will reveal the results of four years worth of end-user experience monitoring of the Grand National in a live webinar taking place on Thursday 12th May.

The Grand National drives the largest spike in traffic seen by betting websites and apps each year, with half the adult population of the UK placing a bet on the race.

Each year, many sites are troubled by traffic-related issues and errors caused by the massive interest generated by the Grand National, as evidenced by Intechnica’s monitoring activities since 2013. Common errors include missing content, slow pages and periods of unavailability.

Now, Intechnica are poised to reveal how the market has responded to this challenge, and will once again present findings in a live webinar.

The webinar takes place at 11am BST on Thursday May 12th and is free to attend.

If you attempted to place a bet on the Grand National using a mobile or tablet device, take our 2 minute survey to let us know what your experience was like!

In terms of betting, the Grand National is huge each year. And just as online shopping is swinging towards mobile being the dominant format for consumers, the same trend is being seen year on year in mobile betting and gaming.

In fact, the number of remote bets placed via mobile rose from 54% last year to 63% this year.

Intechnica have been externally monitoring the performance of the major sports betting websites during the Grand National since 2013, and this year the focus of this activity spread to include native mobile app monitoring, thanks to assistance from Perfecto Mobile. But what we want to know is how people feel about the experience being offered by the apps and websites themselves.
