growing strongly - Forrester research firm research shows that mobile commerce sales are expected to increase dramatically over the next 5 years as more consumers look to their smartphones to make purchases.

While 'smart' phones, as the name suggests, already contain optimisations in their browser software to render existing websites in as user friendly manner as possible. However, even with these in place, almost all websites are unwieldy, have visibility issues, and are difficult to navigate when viewed through a mobile. This will lead to a negative user experience, and loss of potential traffic.

We understand that mobile applications development for web sites is an arduous, long and costly affair - we have to take into account the different screen sizes, navigation mechanisms, controls and capabilities. One of the challenges is also to design the site using reduced content, because mobile resources are scarce (bandwidth, processing power, screen real estate). Deciding what is important vs. what to hide are recurring themes and are tough decisions for business owners.

We at Archimedes, can assist you in tapping the tremendous potential of this massive user base, and in turn extend the reach of your business and improve brand visibility, efficiency and effectiveness. Our expert team of mobile website designers and engineers can:

  • Develop a mobile web site that will take into consideration your brand, theme (or native platform look and feel guidelines) and content distribution mechanism, and run on a variety of mobile browser platforms. Whether you are a serious, established business or a start-up, we'll guide you on how to retain existing customers and get new ones using a new mobile strategy.
  • Mobile-enable your existing web application very quickly, for a fraction of the budget you spent designing your existing web site. We will endeavour to reuse any existing content you have already and optimise it for a seamless user experience on every mobile platform, be it a smartphone or tablet.
  • Take advantage of the underlying mobile platform hardware by leveraging HTML5 - offline support, CSS/CSS3 style animations, GeoLocation services (user location, what's near me type features), multimedia services (video and audio streaming), persistent server side communications etc.
  • Develop m-Commerce solutions - We can integrate with existing commerce software such as Magento, Virtuemart, Konakart and other systems or build completely bespoke, secure m-commerce solutions, complete with administration control panels, product catalogues, checkout and shipping options, real-time marketing (coupons, offers), payment modules (integration with merchant services e.g. Authorize.net and paypal) and order management.
