Here are our TOP 12 (admittedly technical) reasons we like Rigor.
That effortlessly and continuously provides spoon-fed comprehensive web page optimization improvement suggestions
Ability to not just monitor production websites and suggest improvements, but also being able to act as a ‘website front end performance quality gate’ that tests and potentially blocks poor code from making it into production. Better still Rigor helps developers and testers quickly understand what they need to do to address any problems, making it easier to hit demanding release dates whilst ensuring high quality
Their level of detailed analysis, inspection and multitude of ways to slice & dice page performance info is second-to-none and allows users to quickly identify and diagnose issues. This very quickly becomes a source of frustration with most other synthetic testing tools.
This ability is badly lacking in many other synthetic monitoring solutions
To validate that the correct content is returned when monitoring such (usually) business-critical services
Can be easily created and maintained with very little technical knowledge
Ability to easily deploy your own private Rigor monitoring agent wherever you wish via a Docker container
Which is usually an expensive cost option
Which instantly allows the User to identify and hopefully rectify performance degradation / make further improvements
Imperative for any competent software tool. Rigor has a great habit of clear explanation and navigation of info, so is easy to use
The ability to easily share results, issues and information with unregistered colleagues & external stakeholders is also key to extracting value from any monitoring / optimisation solution. Rigor does this with aplomb
