This month has been a very productive month here at Virteom. Weve had 4 websites go live! The first of the August website launches was Ingot Metallurgy Forum (IMF) (ingotmetallurgyforum.org) -- IMF is a forum for technical discussions on producing steel and alloy ingots. IMF is headquartered here in Lorain, OH, but its reach is nationwide. The case of the MILK-CARTON DEVELOPER IMF came to us in need of routine website maintenance. The developers they were previously working with were not as responsive as they needed. Since the organization has two events each year, they need to keep the website up-to-date with information regarding their meetings. They reached out to Virteom for assistance! Since we are a full-time web development firm, were able to respond to inquiries quickly, and keep their members in the loop.

A website is more than a place to find a phone number or email. Its more than product and service details. Its more than a place to boast about your company employees, history, and experience. Its more than an extra for your business or marketing, its a necessity. Websites are not what they used to be, they have to be both a foundation and driver of your web presence growth. Thats why Virteom creates Smart Sites. With technology advancing at warp speeds, traditional websites are quickly losing ground. Mobile devices and their streamlined, quick responding, draw-us-back app technology call for websites to join the cutting edge, modern front runners or dwindle into antiquity. Are websites fighting a losing battle? We believe not. SEO, bandwidth, browser technology, screen sizes and user expectations continually change around us and lead into a better future. It is time to recharge our creative thinking caps and utilize the technologies at hand. Traditionally, websites retrofitting
