Is Responsive Web Design Really That Important?
Let's be honest. The credit union industry, as a whole, is not known for being on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to their websites. This conservative approach, while serving members just fine up until now, will just not do as technology -- and the banking industry -- evolve.
The credit union that can put themselves into the mind of the busy consumer, by making their banking interactions convenient & easy on the go – will win in the long run.
Perhaps you are already thinking about creating a new website or redesigning your current site. In your research you have most likely considered responsive design, a strategy where websites automatically resize and reconfigure to various screen sizes and devices.
This means that your website will look the same, and give the same user experience, whether viewed on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Why should this matter?
Because 2014 is the year that mobile internet browsing is predicted to take over desktop internet usage, and according to Google, 90% of people will move between devices to accomplish a goal, whether that’s on a smartphone, PC, tablet or laptop.
