Earlier today, OfficeSpace.com announced the launch of its new mobile website. Mobile users can now browse commercial properties and contact brokers with greater ease and efficiency.
The new website is built as a single-page isomorphic web application, a cutting edge concept in web application development. Typical single-page web applications have to load application code before a user can see anything, but an isomorphic application renders the page before the application code is even downloaded. “This leads to a significantly faster experience on mobile devices, especially when using slower mobile internet connections,” says Amol Kelkar, CTO.
Only a handful of major sites on the Internet are built isomorphic today, and OfficeSpace.com is the first one in CRE to utilize this technology. “OfficeSpace.com’s goal is to elevate the technology and user experience standards that are expected from online CRE services,” according to Kelkar. “We are leading the way with this new site.”
OfficeSpace.com plans to share their new isomorphic web platform with the open-source community.
Mobile and tablet users already account for nearly 33% of OfficeSpace.com’s traffic. “We’ve seen a 240% jump in mobile users in the first quarter of this year compared to last year. We are excited to see how our investment in mobile will empower our rapidly growing user base,” says Susie Algard, CEO.
The mobile site is available by navigating to OfficeSpace.com from any mobile device.
