As you may know, our ResponsiveJS Technology was recently ranked as A Strong Performer in "The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Commerce Solution Providers, Q4 2013,” (December 2013). The ResponsiveJS solution architecture and mobile web offering ranked among the highest of the evaluated vendors for its ability to turn existing websites into responsive websites, without rebuilding from scratch. Instead of resting on our laurels, we are continually investing in our ResponsiveJS technology. A select team of Merkle technologists and strategists are putting their heads together and imagining ways to make achieving responsive design easier and more efficient for enterprise companies.
Our most recent efforts have turned ResponsiveJS into a true technology suite aimed at delivering high performance responsive sites. The ResponsiveJS suite of technologies now consists of:
WHY: Enterprise websites need responsive design, but are not always ready to rebuild from scratch.
WHY: Updates to a responsive site need to be more efficient.
When dreaming up Responsive Studio, we had one thing in mind – make website updates easier. Responsive design is requiring process changes across organizations. Designing and reviewing updates to a responsive site requires seeing how layouts look and function at numerous breakpoints simultaneously. Responsive Studio is a Development Environment that allows developers to easily test and share changes they make to their websites that utilize ResponsiveJS. Input windows allow developers to modify the ResponsiveJS library and see layouts update in real time, then share with stakeholders.
Responsive Image Optimizer
WHY: Page load time is critical to performance.
The Responsive Image Optimizer helps deliver high performing websites through decreasing the weight of website images. At approximately 70% of typical page weight, images provide the most significant opportunity to decrease the page load time of your website. In the optimizer, simply point to the URL of your image, crop and scale for mobile, tablet and desktop. View stats on the images’ improved load time and file size, and embed the code into your website code. The single line of code will tell your site which image to deliver based on breakpoint.
The ResponsiveJS Technology Suite is continuing to receive updates that deliver a more efficient and higher performing responsive site. We have some amazing product enhancements coming down the pipe soon. If you would like to learn more about the future of ResponsiveJS, feel free to reach out.
