Merkle 5th Finger announced earlier this year 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. In addition, the ResponsiveJS Suite delivers up to five times faster page load time when compared to websites with unoptimized images by utilizing its unique responsive Image Optimizer. This tool delivers optimized images for each device type. In turn, the optimized images served to a device are lighter and the time it takes to render a respective webpage is reduced. Image Optimizer, the exclusive user-friendly tool, is the first of its kind to hit the market.

“Now that responsive design is being adopted by many enterprise websites, a new challenge has arisen for developers and website owners – how to ensure a fast and maintainable experience across all devices,” said Patrick Collins, SVP, digital agency group, Merkle. “We view speed as a critical component to a successful website experience, and are investing in features that not only improve site performance but maintenance and ease of deployment as well.”
