During Black Friday weekend, Tacit employed additional proactive real-time, eyes-on monitoring, a clear communication plan and a back-up rotation of software engineers and QA engineers to support clients, if needed. In the end, months of thorough preparation paid off and no issues were raised by Tacit clients over the Black Friday weekend.

“Coming out of a new website launch in June, it was great to have strong site stability and performance with very high traffic levels over the Black Friday period. The Black Friday period was the biggest ever for ghd with double digit growth in online sales for the cult beauty brand”, said Ross Leibbrandt, Global eCommerce Director for ghd.
