Through Responsive Delivery, the Moovweb platform empowers businesses to go mobile by taking a fundamentally different approach to unifying their web and mobile development. With Moovweb, a business's mobile sites and apps inherit and stay in sync with a desktop site's content, features and business logic. This approach allows powerful mobile experiences to be delivered in days, not months and drives radically improved business agility over time.
Moovweb is a next generation mobile platform for Responsive Delivery. Moovweb transforms desktop sites in real time for phones, tablets, kiosks, and future touch-points. Moovweb eliminates the need to maintain multiple sites or technology stacks, dramatically cutting cost and improving business agility. Enterprise developers, design agencies, and systems integrators can use Moovweb to deliver mobile sites and apps faster and improve their mobile experiences more quickly. The Moovweb platform is one of the world's busiest, with more than 15 billion mobile pages transformed this year alone for many of the world's largest mobile sites and apps, including Macy's, 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Sur la Table, Golfsmith, Vitacost, Kroger, Accenture, Cox Communications, Chico's, Sharpie and dozens of others. Moovweb is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in New York and London.
