Merkle 5th Finger Launches New Technology, ResponsiveJS

February 20, 2014
Columbia, MD

Merkle 5th Finger (www.5thfinger.com), the mobile technology division of Merkle, the leading technology enabled, data-driven customer relationship marketing (CRM) firm and the nation’s largest privately held agency, has announced the 2.0 launch of ResponsiveJS. ResponsiveJS is a powerful suite of JavaScript-based technologies that can easily transform a traditional website into a responsive design site for mobile and tablet optimization.

The ResponsiveJS Suite was recently ranked as a strong performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Commerce Solution Providers, Q4 2013,” (December 2013). The high-speed, easy-to-implement JavaScript framework transforms an existing desktop website into a highly optimized, responsive website, without requiring a full rebuild. In addition, the ResponsiveJS Suite delivers faster page load times utilizing the Responsive Image Optimizer to deliver optimized images for each device type. Updates are also simplified with a Development Environment which allows for testing and viewing site changes across screen sizes in real time.

“Although Responsive Design is a high priority for many enterprise companies, rebuilding their sites from scratch can be a time-consuming and costly exercise,” said Patrick Collins, SVP, Customer Experience Group, Merkle. “In ResponsiveJS, we created a powerful set of technologies that not only offer the fastest path to a full responsive site, but really deliver the ultimate customer experience through site speed and device optimization.”

Innovative baby product company, Munchkin, Inc. is the latest organization that has utilized the ResponsiveJS technology to successfully build and launch its responsive website for smartphone and tablet devices. Merkle’s industry expertise across insurance, wealth management, banking, life sciences, travel, media and entertainment, as well as CPG, high technology, and B2B, enables Merkle 5th Finger’s ResponsiveJS to address customer experience strategies beyond its customary focus on the retail industry.
