Senior-Friendly Website Uses Responsive Design Technology to Deliver Fantastic User Experience

Sunrise Senior Living Mobile Site Experience

The award-winning mobile site experience for Sunrise Senior Living, designed and developed by Delphic Digital

Sunrise is a perfect case study for responsive web design because the site must appeal to two distinct audiences

Manayunk-based digital agency Delphic Digital has received the Sitecore Site of the Year Award for Best Mobile Solution. As the Interactive Agency of Record for Sunrise Senior Living, Delphic Digital provides full-service digital marketing efforts, which, in 2013, included a website overhaul and relaunch in responsive design to create a more senior-friendly web experience.

Delphic leveraged Sitecore as the platform best positioned to execute the client’s wish list of geotargeting visitors and providing support for nearly 300 individual Sunrise Senior Living community pages. Custom Sitecore enhancements allowed each community to seamlessly upload dynamic content to provide a more personalized web experiences for visitors seeking information about a Sunrise location in a specific region.

“Sunrise is a perfect case study for responsive web design because the site must appeal to two distinct audiences — the potential or current senior resident as well as the decision maker, who is most likely an adult child,” said Lance Hollander, Delphic Digital’s Managing Partner. “These visitors often have very different comfort and confidence thresholds with using various Internet-connected devices and even navigating the web.”

In addition to the national award recognition from Sitecore, the Sunrise Senior Living website relaunch resulted in a 17% increase in pages per visit and an 11% decrease in bounce rate. The data show that the decision to use responsive design technology drove a richer user experience that allowed readers to find what they were looking for and engage more deeply with the website content.    

“Responsive design and Sitecore created a winning combination that allowed us to build a powerful solution for both seniors and the adult children involved in this important stage of their parents’ life,” said Hollander.

In 2012, Delphic also received a Sitecore MVP award (one of 41 worldwide) as well as the Sitecore Site of the Year Award for its work on the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa website relaunch.
