If you regularly browse the internet on your mobile, you may have noticed something a little different about our website: we have adapted our existing design to make it responsive. So, whether you're browsing our website on your desktop computer or on a smartphone, the page will ‘respond’ by adjusting the design elements to better fit the given space.
Give it a try right now: simply grab your mobile and visit www.defactosoftware.com. Alternatively, you can visit the same page on your desktop computer and resize the browser window to the size of an iPhone. Watch as the page elements move and resize simultaneously – this happens because the new website has been coded in such a way that it can detect a different window size and respond accordingly.
Every page on our website looks great on mobile devices and desktop computers alike, thanks to our new responsive design
Because our website is now responsive, it’s easier than ever before to access product information or get in touch with us when you’re on the move. The responsive site also has SEO benefits for us: Google strongly recommends responsive web design as the ideal mobile SEO solution.
Companies without a responsive website run the risk of their content not being seen by mobile users. According to a recent study, the majority of mobile users will close web pages that have not been optimised for smartphones.¹

In addition to making all pages on our website responsive, we’ve also introduced a brand new careers section. Previously, all vacancies were listed on a single page. Now, job seekers can navigate to the relevant page for their level of experience – whether they’re a graduate, school leaver or have already worked in a similar role to the one being advertised. Each page also includes links to interviews with current De Facto employees, providing their personal insights into what it’s like to work here. Take a look at the new careers section here.
Our brand new careers section provides plenty of information for job seekers
We hope you enjoy using the improved website. We’d love to hear your feedback – please feel free to contact us at any time with your comments.
