As a matter of fact, though Cbazaar was a popular brand among ethnic fashion lovers and had a responsive website in place, the brand wasn't not able to generate the expected sales.
The user interface of the mobile responsive website was supposed to be created in such a way that it provides an app-level convenience. However, the most challenging part was bestowing effects that are native in a mobile app development environment into a mobile-website.
The design team of Contus had to come up with quality alternatives that could provide a polished experience for users while using the website through their smartphones.
Contus suggested cbazaar.com to go for a mobile website instead of a mobile-responsive approach as a dedicated mobile website could serve better the purpose of rendering a great use experience across mobile devices instead of just responsiveness.
