Mobile web traffic surpassed desktops back in late 2015. Since that time, mobile device usage has skyrocketed with 57% of all web traffic now mobile. More than ever before, people have a higher expectation of their mobile experience with brands on their phone. Every experience matters and with users primarily interacting on their phones, it’s more important than ever to get it right.
We have a few observations and tips that you should focus on to help your users have a quality mobile experience. One of the biggest complaints from mobile users is that they have a ‘slow experience’. Google provides a testing tool to address this and will report how well your site performs in a mobile environment.
Finding the information that a user is looking for is also critical for having a successful mobile presence. Simplifying the site navigation on mobile devices is part of the solution. Incorporating a ‘hamburger’ menu with direct links to important information is something we incorporate into all our responsive web sites.
Interrupting the mobile experience should be done with great caution. Pop-ups and full-screen ads that block people from seeing your content contribute to a negative mobile experience. On a desktop it may be easy to just ‘click off’ an ad but on mobile is may completely lock the viewer out of seeing any relevant information. The Coalition for Better Ads provides some good insight into the least preferred ad experiences for desktop and mobile web.
With rapid advances in technology and users spending more and more time on their smartphones, providing a quality mobile experience is key to your online success.
We’ve known Dale at Euro Classics for years and finally convinced him of a much needed site overhaul. His shop was well known in the enthusiast community for their quality and craftsmanship. Our mission was to help him expand his reach to all import car owners regardless if it was a Volkswagen or a Ferrari.
The solution for Euro Classics was based off a Laravel PHP framework. Our custom blogging platform allows Euro Classics to easily maintain their shop news without the need to learn a full CMS. For our web development team, coding the pages directly in an IDE is considerably faster than the drag-n-drop or WYSIWYG interfaces associated with most platforms. This allowed our team to turn the site around much faster and with greater control over the appearance.
We look forward to seeing the site perform well as there is a fair amount of competition among Foreign car repair shops in the Dayton area.

We have a common saying for many here at OmniSpear and it’s “Happy Birthday Porcha.” Well, today is actually the true birthday of Mr. James Porcha, so we had to make sure and legitimately wish him a wonderful day. Our lunch celebration consisted of pizza, sweets, games, and extreme competition (our classic combo). So for our team, it was a success. We can’t wait to wish James many more Happy Birthdays in the future.
OmniSpear is thrilled to welcome Victoria Killebrew as she joins forces with our team for her school internship. Victoria is an up-and-coming design major with experience in web development, and we are eager to get her take on design with the freshest set of eyes we could find. Welcome Victoria!
Our company takes every excuse we can to grill meats and bring in barges of foods. Grilling season is a real thing for OmniSpear and our team recently celebrated the beginning of spring with our first cookout of 2017! While the gourmet menu changes, we are sure to include hot dogs, burgers, an assortment of side items and beverages as staple features. Most importantly, it was a great afternoon to enjoy the company of colleagues, say goodbye to the cold, winter months, and hello to the gorgeous days ahead this spring season.
OmniSpear teammates take a break from the tech world every now and then, but goals do include the automation of our grill and heat temperature alerts sent directly to our phone.
We love receiving amazing notes about our fellow teammates. This latest review on James Porcha from our IT department makes us so happy!
“Every team has that “go-to-guy” that it counts on when the game is on the line. The legendary Michael Jordan was that “guy” for the Chicago Bulls Dynasty in the 1990s. Fast forward to 2016, LeBron James assumes “go-to-guy” status for the defending World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
OmniSpear, Inc. has its own version of “go-to-guy.” Most of us depend on computers daily. So when something goes wrong, we need that “guy” to turn to. OmniSpear’s version of MJ or King James is James Porcha, a help-desk technician at OmniSpear. With over 10 years in the IT field, I know James has the experience to help whatever issues arise.
It is interesting to note that this all started out as a hobby for James. His passion for technology was truly helpful to family and friends who encountered computer issues. It has now transitioned into a successful career. And you can count on James during times of need.
As stated on OmniSpear’s website, when it comes to buying or repairing computers and other technology, James has clearly established a reputation for himself as everyone’s – wait for it – “Go-To-Guy!”
