OpenSRS faced a number of challenges that integrating a mobile website builder into their reseller platform would address.
Mobile web usage has exploded: With 91% of all people on Earth owning a mobile phone and 50% of those using it as their primary Internet source*, mobile could no longer be ignored. Businesses were seeing more of their web traffic coming from mobile, driving the demand for mobile solutions.
Provide new value-added services: OpenSRS strive to provide their reseller channel with compelling new value-added services. OpenSRS looked for a new offering that could be easily added to a shopping cart, not only driving additional revenue per user but also helping develop deeper customer relationships.
In-house development is not sustainable: Web hosting companies were realizing that building and maintaining their own web publishing solutions, were both a costly and an ineffective use of time. OpenSRS felt it was worth the investment to integrate a solution that enabled their customers to offer a competitive mobile web publishing solution without having to invest much time or money in development resources.
