Enhance Customer Experience with RIA

in Website

Do you like visiting a website that is plain and simple? Would you like a website that is static and has the old conventional style of links on one side and loads of scrolling information on the rest of the page? These kinds of websites are boring and very cumbersome in today's age. Moreover, getting a share of the Internet market also becomes difficult in such a situation. A simple static website is no longer a good option to attract page views. To enhance customer experience on your website, it has become almost impertinent to include rich internet applications (RIA) on your website.


Rich Internet Applications are web applications that are similar to desktop applications but are accessed via site-specific browser. Apart from improving user satisfaction, RIA provides a wide range of controls specially designed for efficient interaction that engages and guides users in the site. Popular examples of websites with RIA development are Adobe Flash, Adobe flex, Microsoft Silverlight, Ajax and JavaFX. You must have visited some sites that open with Adobe Flash and have special graphics and interactive designs for your convenience. RIA developers are taking special care to include as many features into the website as possible. Thus, today it is common to find word processors, spreadsheets, online games on sites running on RIA. 


Special Features of RIA


  • When these applications are created through offshore development centers, it is ensured that the website is richer in term of content and look.
  • They are faster, engaging and much more usable. However it is not easy to design such a website. Most of the time, you have to take help of RIA developers who can help in custom development of your site.
  • Such websites enable users to directly interact with page elements like dragging and dropping elements within the site. Information is presented to the user in less time as most of the content is on one page itself.
  • There is lesser navigation from one page to another in the website and users can send their feedback, confirm something and get error messages in the same page. You have to decide how much richness you want in your site. Though you have the option of adding as many features as you want, you have to be careful to restrict yourself.

If you are planning to outsource your custom development project, keep in mind that the needs of your user is kept in mind. Hire the services of a professional offshore development center to get impressive RIA developed for your website like at http://evontech.com/flash-flex-development.html.
