Responsive web design

Having a responsive website is no longer optional for businesses. Many people now access the internet from their mobiles and tablets rather than desktops and laptops, and your business could easily lose customers if your website isn't ready to be viewed on these devices.

Web design which is responsive means that your website reacts to the device it is being viewed on. This means that regardless of the platform, product, brand or browser, your site acknowledges and responds to the capabilities of the device.

Should someone open your website on a mobile, for example, your website adjusts to fit to the size of the screen and links or buttons become larger for ease of access. In addition, the amount of scrolling, panning and re-sizing should decrease, as these all become more difficult for users to do on a smaller screen.

Responsive web design is all about making life easier for the users of the website. A website which is difficult to use or doesn't load quickly enough will lead customers to your competitors. Users now expect the websites they use to be readable and practical regardless of their device.

How do we make your site responsive?

Transcendit take the time to get to know you and your business, and the audience for the website or application. If your target audience is more smartphone based, then we start there. This is called mobile first web design, and uses a mobile phone screen to design your website initially, before moving the design onto bigger screens. This way the design has been built with mobile users in mind from the beginning of the process.

If you need a piece of software or an application to be responsive on larger screens, we use computer first web design. This is usually for applications and programs which will be accessed predominantly from laptops and desktops from a desk. Employees accessing a database, for example, are unlikely to be doing so on the move from a mobile. The design will be responsive to different sizes of larger screens, with the program adjusting and responding just as a website does on a mobile.

Transcendit test all of their websites, programs and applications across a range of devices, to ensure that they always look their best and work well on whatever they are viewed on. You never get a second chance at a first impression - so we make sure that your website will never need one.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
