SIOUX FALLS, S.D., June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Industries Applied Technology Division (Nasdaq:RAVN) announced its newly designed responsive website, Ravenprecision.com. Visitors to the new site will have a consistent experience from any internet-enabled device. The move comes as more and more businesses are realizing the benefits of optimizing web content for mobile devices like tablets and smart phones. The ability to access information in the office and in the field is vital to agricultural producers. Michelle Lavallee, Raven Applied Technology Division's leader of marketing and sales, had this to say about the unveiling of the new site, "We are a technology company, and staying ahead of the curve is always a priority. Our goal is to give visitors to our site the most user-friendly experience possible. Now, Raven information is available across devices in one easy-to-read site. Our precision agriculture products are color agnostic, it follows that our website is screen size agnostic as well." In the past, many businesses had a standard site for desktop browsing and a mobile site that may or may not display properly. As mobile web browsing is expected to surpass desktop internet access by 2015, the importance of responsive design is increasingly important. The new design works by building a site based on ratios, so that elements are not fixed but rather relative to each other. This allows better rendering of content on mobile devices and eliminates the need for multiple versions of a company's site.
