So, what is a responsive website and what are the benefits?
Responsive websites are a beautiful form of modern web design that are able to adapt to their viewing environment and are able to display properly across a wide range of devices. Not to be confused with adaptive web design, a responsive site is completely flexible and fluid and can alter the presentation of a web page by simply rotating the display.

Responsive websites reduce the need and cost for maintenance as there is no longer a need for a separate mobile site or a tablet site. Consumers have quickly adapted to using responsive websites and expect that your business will have one as well. At least 90% of web users use multiple screens daily. If you haven't already, the time is now to respond.
