Responsive Web Design

 

Attendee Interactive is now offering all clients a Responsive Web Design for the solutions that they use to collect data for their conferences.

Why is Responsive Web Design important? A decade ago, everyone was viewing the Internet through the same boxy monitors. Now, traffic to our websites flows from all sorts of devices- desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets, big phones, little phones, phones held upright, phones turned sideways (you get the idea). This year US adults spent more time using the Internet on their smartphones than their computers! We want to make our websites as easy to use for clients as possible, no matter what type of screen they are using. Responsive Web Design allows us to do that.

Is Responsive Web Design just about phones?  Responsive design is a multi-device solution - it aims to provide the best web experience for all users. Tablets and phones are coming onto the Internet at breakneck speed, but so are new computers with high resolutions and extreme detail. Responsive websites are tailored to both sorts of devices. Because of the way responsive sites are structured, its even easy to update them to address new devices that come to market!  

Here are some examples of current clients using responsive websites that we designed.

The National Kidney Foundation has a, user-friendly, responsive web design, abstract collection site for their 2015 Spring Clinical Meeting, #SCM15.

 

The American College of Radiology is using our Submission and Speaker Management solution to build sessions and schedule speakers for #ACR2015.  All information is user-friendly, in a responsive web design.

The Society of Interventional Radiology now has a responsive conference website for their 40th Annual Scientific Meeting. This website, we designed, delivers conference content to each user's device, platform and screen size.
