Responsive Design – What is it and Why is it Important?

What is Responsive Design?

Responsive web design means that a website has been developed to provide an optimal viewing experience across a broad range of devices including desktop computer monitors, popular tablets or pads, and popular mobile devices.  With a responsive website design you don't have to worry about having different websites for different devices. Responsive sites provide a consistent user experience across devices.

An increasing number of users will access a site via a mobile device.  It is predicted that in 2014 mobile Internet usage may take over desktop usage.  25 percent of Internet users only access the Internet via a mobile device in the United States.  We are finding at MTS that all of client sites are seeing significant access via mobile devices.

At MTS, we are developing all of our new sites to be responsive.  If you have questions about how this may apply to your business please feel free to contact us.
