Simply put, responsive design is a website’s ability to detect the size limitations of the device on which it is being viewed and optimize visually for that device size. What that means is that companies need only design and maintain one website now. No longer is it necessary to create a website for computer browsing as well as a mobile version of that website. With responsive design, a company can create and maintain one responsive website which can be optimally viewed from any device - that means computers, iPads, iPods, iPhones, Droids and Tablets. Responsive design is still a new concept in software. However, it’s become wildly popular in the past year. In 2012, .Net Magazine named Responsive Design as the #2 Top Web Design Trends.
But why has Responsive Design become so popular so quickly? The answer is simple - usability. With the high influx of web browsing via smart phones and tablets, software companies have identified a user pain point - the user’s inability to read what they are browsing on their phones. Responsive Design developed as an answer to that customer pain. As a company, this means their responsive website will make their customers happy. No longer do users have to struggle with pinching and scrolling side to side to read or access the information a company provides on their website. And happy customers make happy companies.
Envoc, a Louisiana-based custom software company, loves to implement Responsive Design on their clients’ websites. Most recently, Envoc implemented this flexible design with IMM, an eSignature and workflow solutions provider to the financial industry (immonline.com). Envoc was able to give IMM a stable, usable website with built in content management that is also responsive. Implementation time was minimal and in the website re-design process, adding the Responsive Design feature did not add a considerable amount of time or money to their project timeline or budget.

Since implementation of Responsive Design on the IMM website, mobile device views for the company’s website has grown and continues to grow. IMM’s customers have now become accustomed to viewing their website on a mobile device and those customer are assured that the information they are seeking is easy to access on this new design. Of the new Responsive Design, Michael Ball, IMM’s Vice President of Markets & Strategy said, “We were very pleased with the outcome of our new website project with Envoc. Not only was the team great to work with, but the new site has exceeded our goals in both receptivity and in lead generation. We continue to get excellent feedback regarding the responsive design allowing the site and critical content to be available and presented professionally on virtually any device.”
