2013 is the year in which mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most widespread internet access point worldwide. According to a study made by the NPD Group, 37 percent of consumers who used to access content on their PCs switched to their tablets and smartphones.

If you want to serve your consumers wherever they are, your website needs to go mobile!

Consumers are increasingly using their mobile devices to browse the internet looking for information, products and services as well as to buy online.

However the web accessed from mobile devices has many limits.  Navigation is a problem for websites not optimized for mobile devices as the content area is large, the screen size is small and the bandwidth speed is very slow.

On the other hand implementing a mobile site has many benefits: improved user experience, faster download speed, better engagement with users and therefore a competitive advantage.

A study on mobile optimization made by the Internet Advertising Bureau (UK) reveals that 57% of the top 100 brands now have a mobile optimized site.

The mobile version of your website must be much simpler than much of your website-your menu structure may wish to be redone completely, and you might want to eliminate many of the graphics that this main site contains.
