Google recently launched an initiative to encourage mobile site development: its goal is to provide businesses with the tools, guidance, and resources necessary to make a site mobile-friendly.
We are incredibly excited to be a part of Google's strategy for mobile - we believe the next step in the web is its availability everywhere, and we're determined to help it reach this goal. It's incredibly important that companies have a place to turn to when they're thinking of going mobile, and Google is perfectly placed to help.
Many of our customers have benefited from going mobile with Moovweb. 1800-Flowers certainly saw the benefits of Moovweb's technology. The core features of the desktop site work perfectly on the mobile site – things like the real-time local inventory and availability. Take a look at this video:
Numerous other customers have found success with Moovweb: from Macy's to the American Cancer Society; Chico's to Fred Meyer Jewelers. They all realized that mobile is the way forward.
The statistics back up the importance of mobile. For example, did you know that by 2013, it's predicted that more people will be using mobile phones than PCs. 40% of users have turned to a competitor's site after having a bad mobile experience. 59% of users visit a business after searching for local information. With these kind of stats, it's essential that a great mobile experience is provided.
We hope that many more businesses, large and small, realize the importance of mobile and join the mobilization of the web with Moovweb!
