6 Whats Unique about Our Site? Uses iPhone standards and design Optimized for smartphones and dumb cell phones First mobile site on campus

7 Positive Reviews I work at the Providence College Library and have been working on designing a mobile site. I've used your site as a reference and it's been invaluable. I really like your design... My name is Alison Miller and I am working on the InfoQuest pilot project - a collaborative text messaging service. We would like to make our main site mobile accessible and it was recommended that we contact you to learn your "tricks" and possibly get some input or assistance. I had a question, who did the design work for this? I'm looking into the mobile piece for Central Web and was wondering if this was done in-house or via a vendor?
