Where we can help

If the connection is fast, you could display an extensive informational video. If a user’s smartphone has a slower speed, you can detect that and automatically show them an informational graphic instead. Your website doesn’t grind to a halt, but keeps running and keeps customers engaged.

You can send your customers on a desktop or notebook a specific layout that looks good on a larger screen. Customers using a tablet may see a different design optimized for that device, perhaps offering simplified navigation or displaying larger buttons to make it easier to use with a touchscreen. Mobile devices don’t necessarily need to download a fully responsive website. You can send them a third design with smaller images and more nimble content that is designed to use less bandwidth over a mobile connection.

Netbiscuit’s Device Detection allows you to decide from the server what content to display, improving performance for the customer and reducing your company’s bandwidth costs.

With Netbiscuits device detection parameters you can for example:

Detect the customer’s local time and display a breakfast menu in the morning and lunch and dinner menus at the appropriate times.
Display regional information based on the user’s geolocation
Identify whether the device has a fingerprint sensor or sensors to detect the user’s heart rate or gestures; use this information to customize the design to incorporate these features
Create an optimized touch-enabled website for touch-enabled devices, as BMW Motorcycles did
Make sure your site is compatible with older cell phones, like PayPal’s site, or Develop an adaptive, optimized mobile site, like Diageo Careers did

No matter what the product or service, Netbiscuits device detection parameters allow your website to automatically adapt to the user’s device. Your site becomes smarter, your customers have a better experience, and you can save on bandwidth costs.

In addition to products, we offer Professional Services such as project management, implementation and cloud hosting to provide our customers with a comprehensive service! Our experienced engineering team has been working on large-scale and high-traffic web applications for more than 10 years with customers like kicker and BMW Motorcycles.
