WP Engine, a company that powers digital experiences for Web sites and applications built on WordPress, today introduced Page Performance to focus on delivering performance intelligence for Web sites across its 47,000 customers and agency partners in 133 countries.
With Page Performance, WP Engine offers a Web page speed performance tool integrated into the user dashboard through which users can gain actionable insights to improve the speed of their Web sites.

The speed of your site has a significant impact on these metrics and now with Page Performance you'll have expert recommendations to make your site perform even better," said Heather Brunner, CEO of WP Engine, in a statement. "But the visibility into the data and improving page speed is just the beginning. Our vision for Performance Intelligence is to empower our customers by arming them with the tools necessary to deliver the best digital experience possible."
