Built for Speed
Bundlebee concatenates, minifies and caches API requests from third-party vendors into a single response, called a bundle, significantly reducing both file sizes and load times to dramatically improve the user experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Bundlebee?
A. Bundlebee concatenates, minifies and caches API requests from third-party vendors into a single response, called a bundle, significantly reducing both file sizes and load times to dramatically improve the user experience. Bundlebee makes any site with multiple API calls faster and more reliable, independent of the content management platform you run. The SPAS application did the same job on your site but is being discontinued.
Q. Why do I need Bundlebee for my website?
A. When a page makes multiple API requests to third-parties – Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. – the size of those downloads can really add up and slow your site down, which affects the overall user experience. By significantly reducing and streamlining server requests and time-to- first-paint, Bundlebee makes your sites snappier and more responsive.
Q. What is the transition process to Bundlebee?
A. After replacing SPAS with Bundlebee our team will need to republish every page that utilizes Bundlebee. In most cases, this means we need to publish your entire website. But before doing so, we will coordinate with you to ensure nothing gets published that isn’t supposed to. Your account team will reach out to you several weeks in advance before we start the process to ensure you are fully aware of the transition.
Q. How much will it cost?
A. As a client of BrandExtract, you will be charged a managed price, which is different from Bundlebee’s external market pricing structure. Our clients either fall under our Basic Managed ($25.00/month) or Plus Managed ($50.00/month) price plan. To discuss which plan is right for you, reach out to your BrandExtract account team.
Q. What happens if I don’t start paying for Bundlebee in October?
A. If you decide not to pay for Bundlebee, there are a few different options for your website.
- You can change the way your website accesses the information SPAS is getting for you, such as YouTube videos or other social media content. In most cases, it will cost significantly more to rebuild those interfaces than it would be to use Bundlebee even in the long-run.
- You could choose to eliminate YouTube and social media components entirely, thus eliminating the need for Bundlebee and saving the additional nominal expense.
It is our recommendation that Bundlebee is the most cost effective replacement for managing your asset gathering and still delivering a rapid user experience should you choose not to eliminate those site components.
Q. Does this change or affect SAM any differently?
A. No, Bundlebee will have no effect on SAM. And once installed, as a replacement, you will likely never have to interface with Bundlebee, just as you never needed to interface with SPAS directly. We will configure Bundlebee to manage your site assets the same as SPAS and maintain their compliance with web browser updates over time. The process will be seamless.
