rtCamp newsletter for February 2024

Hello,

We have teamed up with WordPress VIP to help businesses navigate the ongoing third-party cookie phaseout. You get a complementary website audit using the Privacy Sandbox Analysis Tool (PSAT) we built with Google. To understand your current third-party cookie usage, and adapt your site for a smooth transition to the emerging privacy landscape, you can sign-up on WordPress VIP or rtCamp.

We just came back from this year’s WordCamp Asia at Taipei, Taiwan. Our CEO, Rahul Bansal participated in a panel on “How WordPress can better serve the needs of Enterprise“. Watch the interesting discussion, as our CEO highlights how growth of composable solutions’ addresses the single point of failure inherent in proprietary solutions. 

Recently, we migrated FleetNet America’s website from Drupal to WordPress. The platform migration improved their Core Web Vitals by almost 2x! We kept their design and SEO intact, with a streamlined publishing workflow. Read more about this migration project in our latest case study.

Our migration services help you move to WordPress from any other CMS. We tailor the migration process to your specific needs and business goals.
