We’re delighted to be working with 3chillies to ensure our world leading device detection solution is an option for Sitecore 8 users and partners

• The fastest and most accurate device detection solution from 51Degrees is now available for Sitecore 8 and beyond
• 51Degrees device detection enables Sitecore users to optimise content for many different properties including: screen dimensions; touch screens and desktop
• Free extension is available to all Sitecore users to ensure they continue to benefit from the very best device detection

Reading, 21 September 2015: 3chillies, a digital development agency, has updated an extension for Sitecore 8 to integrate device detection services from 51Degrees. The extension enables Sitecore users to tailor content by screen size, touch screen, desktop and hundreds of other properties - complementing responsive web design techniques. Example use cases include positioning advertising effectively to increase click through rate or promoting products that are more popular on smartphones.

Whilst Sitecore has embedded basic device detection services in the past, 3chillies’ 51Degrees extension upgrades the product to the most efficient, accurate extension available. Sophisticated Content Management System (CMS) customers are increasingly aware that this functionality is crucial to remain competitive and deliver optimum web site return on investment.

Bryan Archer, CTO and founder of 3chillies comments: “Device detection provides an element of personalisation that enhances the user experience when interacting with a complex website. A professionally maintained database is required to ensure both performance and accuracy. 51Degrees provides such a database, offering both free and commercial options.”

Unlike other device detection solutions, which acknowledge up to 0.1 second delay caused by device detection, 51Degrees can process a single detection in 0.0016 milliseconds –this is many times faster than competitor solutions. Its patent pending technology delivers more than 99.9% accuracy and eliminates false positives. Over 28,000 active web enabled devices are fully researched and catalogued compared with around 10,000 from other device detection solutions. Combined with versions of web browser and operating system 51Degrees recognises more than 320,000 unique device setups.

James Rosewell, CEO and founder of 51Degrees comments: “We’re delighted to be working with 3chillies to ensure our world leading device detection solution is an option for Sitecore 8 users and partners. Sitecore 6 and 7 users now have a clear upgrade path to ensure they can benefit from the very best proven device detection. Sitecore users will clearly see the performance and accuracy benefits of 51Degrees when compared to other solutions.”

The basic detection solution is freely available from both 3chillies and 51Degrees under the Mozilla Public Licence. Paid for device data subscriptions, updated daily and weekly, are available which contain the most comprehensive details of devices and device properties. Subscription discounts are available to Sitecore users with the coupon code 3chillies2015.
