When an organization spends CAC (Cost of Acquisition) to acquire a potential customer through various channels, all it takes is the LTV (Life Time Value) of the customer to decide the future of the upcoming company and its growth initiatives. Ideally, we would expect the LTV > CAC for the business to thrive and grow or acquire a more extensive user base for future anticipated growth. However, when the customers have unlimited choices at their fingertips to choose from, it becomes imperative to design the product for a better user experience and latency compared to the competitor. The paper looks at various design approaches to latency and how the technology landscape is changing around latencies.
