Bermad China (www.bermad.com.cn), Bermad’s subsidiary in Shanghai, has been in China for more than 20 years.
To embrace the mobile age and to provide a better experience for mobile users, BERMAD China decided to build a mobile website.
Bermad Chinese website uses traditional design, totaling over 700 web pages. There are more than 500 models of hydraulic valves as well as PDF manual for each product.
After taking the job of Bermad’s mobile site, we divide the work in four parts:
1. Build the website with responsive web design. The website will automatically adjust its structure automatically to suit smart phones, iPad, other tablets and desktop computers.
2. Use an advanced content management system (CMS), and MySQL for database.
3. The mobile site is hosted in the sub-domain http://m.bermad.com.cn.
4. When the mobile phone users and tablet users access www.bermad.com.cn, the site automatically switches to the mobile site http://m.bermad.com.cn.
After the mobile site is completed, visitors can browse the site with any devices. And the client is very happy with the look and functionalities.

Decker Instruments is an expert in polygraph, whose site is www.polygraphsales.com. Since the site was built with an old design, the company needs a new website.
As the customer still wishes to keep the old site, the new responsive website we built is hosted at a new domain name www.polygraphsales.net. The site automatically adapts to suit computers, smart phones and tables.
In this case, the website uses a new domain, which is also a good choice for mobile website.
