Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Today, Wages and Sons Funeral Home and Crematory, announced the launch of their new website http://www.wagesandsons.com which has been rebuilt with a responsive design to provide better service to families no matter what kind of device they visit on. The rising prevalence of mobile phones and tablet devices has meant, until now, every user was having a different experience depending on screen size.
Responsive design is beginning to emerge as the web layout technique of choice. Large corporations such as Starbucks and the Boston Globe use Responsive Design technology. Google has even announced that Responsive Web Design is its recommended approach for mobile search engine optimization.
Michele Fagan, President of Leap Tie, Inc. who built the site for Wages and Sons said “Responsive design was the perfect solution for this website. You may have visitors looking at obituaries for maps and directions to a service from their car on a smart phone, or you may have people who are using a tablet, or mini tablet device to research options for a dying loved one from a care facility. How your website looks and works on the device someone chooses to use, and how much information you provide them can directly affect whether a family will call you or someone else. We now only manage one body of content that flows across all devices the viewer may select. In addition, because of the single URL Google can more easily index site content and establish our relevance in online searches.”
Jeffrey Wages, owner of Wages and Sons Funeral Home and Crematory agrees. “Responsive design makes a website “device friendly” by eliminating the need for pinching and spreading a small screen to see content. To solve this in the past we used to maintain a five page standalone mini mobile site. Now we have one site to edit and all of our information is always available to families who need it. I believe we are the first funeral home in the country to use this technology. Feedback from the community has been really positive.”
