The Marukin Steak & Sushi restaurant had an appealing website, created in 2009. When the restaurant branched out to include Thai cuisine; the restaurant’s owner was unable to contact the original web designer to update the website. JEM Software was retained to redesign the site to accommodate today’s responsive and mobile themes and to incorporate the extended menu in the process.
The Marukin Steak & Sushi restaurant website marked the first implementation of a web-based database to identify the visitor’s device (rather than relying on the browser). This ensures that smartphone users received content that is tailor-made for people on the go.
Since then, the site has undergone another redesign to incorporate the newer “responsive design” strategy, where a single website design is served to mobile users in a slightly different format.
JEM Software took over hosting duties in early 2020 after the original hosting company began making plans to close down.
