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 ensured that smartphone users would receive content that was tailor-made for people on the go.
With the introduction of “responsive design” technology, the customized mobile version of the website was retired.
