GT Metrix for Reporting Accounts


 GT Metrix


We used GT Metrix all of the time to check our progress with site performance, sadly as you can see the team still have a lot of work to do as the server Latency is awful at prestent it really is holding back the site.  The target always was an remains < 2 seconds

The good think is that we are aware of the code that is causing the delay and the team are working slowly on a resolution of the issue.
