Why we like Rigor

Having started with a blank sheet of paper in 2010, Rigor have created a website front-end optimization solution that not only monitors performance of webpages and APIs but suggests in easy to understand language exactly how to speed things up for your users.

Here are our TOP 12 (admittedly technical) reasons we like Rigor.

Optimisation solution

That effortlessly and continuously provides spoon-fed comprehensive web page optimization improvement suggestions

Lifecycle support

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

Granularity of Analysis

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.

Monitor Single Page Apps (SPAs)

This ability is badly lacking in many other synthetic monitoring solutions

Parsing of API calls/content

To validate that the correct content is returned when monitoring such (usually) business-critical services

Simplicity of scripting

Can be easily created and maintained with very little technical knowledge

Containerised Private Agent

Ability to easily deploy your own private Rigor monitoring agent wherever you wish via a Docker container

Extensive and inclusive global coverage

Which is usually an expensive cost option

Compare optimisation scans

Which instantly allows the User to identify and hopefully rectify performance degradation / make further improvements

Intuitive User Interface (UI)

Imperative for any competent software tool. Rigor has a great habit of clear explanation and navigation of info, so is easy to use

Shareability

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

Alignment with Google Lighthouse(GLH) scoring

Which has now become a widely accepted and used web performance metric
