St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 23, 2009
Dirxion, a leading provider of digital publishing services, recently launched EdgeClix, an impressive new version of its digital directory solution that takes digital publishing to the next level. Entirely Flash-based, EdgeClix comes with expanded advertising opportunities, incredible speed, boundless customization and a consistent user experience across all platforms.
Today's consumer is looking for local information that is at their fingertips - information that's quick and easy to find. Dirxion's digital Yellow Pages solution is just that; one-stop source for a fast, reliable local search. It provides a convenient alternative to the traditional phone book while online.
"Dirxion has worked diligently to produce a new digital directory user experience," says Steve Mitchener, President & CEO of Dirxion. "This new interface addresses our need for a green product. Even more importantly, it positions the publisher to support the print product while driving new revenue through a digital product. The sky is the limit for features to this new platform. Dirxion has met the challenges of many publishers and we expect many more in the future."
The EdgeClix experience begins with a stylish, animated and highly customizable welcome page that allows users to search across one or multiple directories offered by the publisher. Once inside the yellow pages, the user is drawn in by the vibrant, life-like pages that users can flip just as if they were holding the real thing. The dynamic search functionality coupled with highlighted results allows users to find information almost instantaneously. The text, images and display ads pop and can be easily zoomed for a close-up view. Other cool enhancements that you just can't get from the print directory - audio, video, animation, sticky notes, address mapping, hyperlinks and additional real estate to add advertisers throughout the year.
