Canadian tech leader Voices.com recently implemented responsive design to make their online marketplace for voice talent accessible to users across all platforms.
LONDON, Ontario, June 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Industry-leading Voices.com is celebrating the registration of its 100,000th voice talent member with the launch of a new website, rebuilt from the ground up. Part of the project included the implementation of "responsive design," a design technique that accurately resizes the contents of a web page to any screen, regardless of its scope or device.
Responsive design is a win-win for both the company and its customers. Traveling down the road of responsive design became an absolute must for Voices.com following a substantial increase in visitors accessing the site via mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad and the Android-powered Galaxy SIII with mobile visits increasing 43% year over year.
"As a result of our responsive design implementation, visitors to the Voices.com site are more engaged and staying on the website for longer periods of time," says David Ciccarelli CEO and co-founder of Voices.com. "People are visiting more often with 86% of members visiting daily. Of those visitors, they are also staying 17% longer on the site than they were just a year ago."
Why did Voices.com incorporate responsive design? Consider the following statistics from a recent Forrester Research report:
- Mobile web browsing is projected to take over desktop Internet usage by 2015 - or sooner.
- 90% of people use multiple screens to access the web.
- 90% of smartphone searches result in a purchase or a visit to a business.
