Alabama’s student newspaper just came out with an e-Edition! It’s published four times a week during Spring and Fall terms. This is the first newspaper that’s requested a bookshelf and it looks great.
Dirxion thrives on our commitment to customer service and we want this to be the easiest decision you have ever made. Whether you have just left your current digital solution or you are finally ready to embark on a new journey for your first digital publication, we will provide you with all the information to make your big move that much smoother. We have six simple steps that cover exactly what the process will be once you decide to use Dirxion as your digital solution.
Step 1. We’ll match you up with one of our customer success project coordinators. With a combined experience of over 40 years (we’ll explain below), these folks know how to make things happen.
Step 2. Once we receive the files you will have one of our seasoned production engineers custom build your interface to match your company/brand and create your first digital publication.
Step 3. The proofing process is very easy once we send you the proof link. Our Quality Assurance team has already checked everything you can possibly think of to make sure that once you get it in your hand it is ready to launch. You will also participate in the review process and send us any changes/edits you feel necessary. We want this to be exactly what you imagined when you chose to work with us.
Step 4. We are more than halfway finished. Now we want you to pick a URL or CNAME where your digital catalog will live. This will make it easy for your customers and clients to find your new dynamic publication on desktop, laptop or mobile devices.
Step 5. Our great marketing team will provide you with some extra brand name awareness. We want everyone to see your new digital publication, so we post on all of our social media outlets and we will also put up a blog post to reach our followers. Your success is our success.
When you’re ready for launch we will set up your analytics so you can track the growth of your publication. We’ll review together the key performance indicators and schedule reports you need to show ROI.
Six simple steps to Dirxion. We cannot wait to have you onboard!
Tell me a little bit about yourself.
I am part of the Local Search team and serve as the Google Analytics admin for the Look & Feel products at Dirxion. I work remotely from Asheville, North Carolina, which means I have a very short commute and don’t always have to put on shoes to go to work! I’ve been married almost 6 years to my husband AJ and we have 2 cats, Buster and Bella. We moved to Asheville from Houston, TX, about a year ago so I’m still getting used to living in a much smaller city, but I’m enjoying the fact that we actually have all 4 seasons here and I like the emphasis in this area on everything local from food and art to biodiesel in the furnace.
How did you get started in Local Search at Dirxion?
I had been a customer of various local search services throughout my career on the print side of yellow page directory publishing so I was very familiar with the product and local search customers. I had an opportunity to transition from print directory publishing to local search in 2010 and I was excited to make the move. I joined the Local Search team at Dirxion in 2012 as part of the ImmersiFind acquisition.
What do you love most about working at Dirxion?
Since I don’t work in the office with everyone, I have a different view of what it means to work ‘at Dirxion’. I like the company’s focus on family, health and happiness; and I am grateful for the opportunity to work for Dirxion from home. I’ve really been enjoying helping out in Marketing with the blogs and social media posts for Sciddy during the 35 hour week trial—that has been my favorite thing recently.
What keeps you up at night?
Not much, but when I can’t sleep it is usually because I can’t stop thinking! Sometimes it is about work and sometimes I get too excited about something fun I am planning.
We try to stay active and fit here at Dirxion, what is your favorite workout to relieve stress?
I like to go to the gym, and I usually go at least 3 days a week. I also like to ride my bike and go hiking. AJ and I also do a lot of what I call urban hiking around town. We try to walk everywhere we can, especially when we go to events downtown because it is only about 1 mile away and that way we don’t have to hassle with parking.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love to cook and try new recipes. I’m obsessed with Twitter at the moment and there is always something going on in Asheville so I’m always looking for ideas. I enjoy going to art galleries, live music shows, new restaurants and local events. I also like to go camping and kayaking.
What are you looking forward to most this year?
I’m looking forward to seeing all the leaves change color from the beginning of the season. We moved here at the end of September last year so I didn’t get to see the whole process. I’m also looking forward to seeing Owlbert again. Our neighbor has an owl box in their backyard which butts up to ours, and there is a screech owl that lives in the box during the fall and winter. We named him Owlbert!
Anything else you’d like to add
I’m very sentimental and cry during sappy commercials. I drink espresso instead of coffee with my breakfast so don’t be surprised to find me extra alert in the mornings!
Branding is much more than a logo or graphic. Your brand is a representation of your company’s mission and personality. When you showcase your brand, you are leaving a lasting impression on your customers. Chances are you already have a logo, color scheme and website design by the time you are sending your digital publication files over to Dirxion. And we love to use all of these elements to personalize your digital publication to reflect and extend your brand.
Dirxion is hands on when it comes to designing your interface. We take all of our customers input seriously, from the toolbar, to the tabs, to the footer, and even the help file – we customize your digital publication to your highest of standards. We have some samples below to show you how far and wide we go in getting you the best representation in your Compass interface.
Starting off with Sams Club, who services over 47 million members and is the 8th largest U.S. retailer, they wanted a simple and clean look, branded nicely to match their color scheme.
Next we will showcase Stihl, the world’s best chain saws and other handheld power equipment. Their digital catalog reflects a sleek and strong design, just like their tools. They wanted to add customization into their product detail pop-ups. Once you find a product, you can click the item and view the layout, a product video and instruction manual. All the information you need is in the product details box.
Baker Furniture has a style that is sleek yet classic and they wanted to extend that style to their digital catalog interface. Our design team made custom modifications to the landing page; including the toolbar, custom buttons and logo size. Baker was more than happy to send over design files for us to modify and fit into our product and the end result is simply breathtaking.
Ballard Design has captured the look and eclectic feel of a European open-air market! They obviously wanted to showcase this in their interface and make it feel as though you were still walking thru the market and shopping, only online! To keep their custom unique look Ballard Design requested a unique landing page with a search option, a transparent toolbar, and customized email and share message.
MSC Industrial Supply is the leading North American distributor of metalworking and maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) products and services. Go to any page on their website and their blue catalog tab will always be on the left. Easily access their digital catalog by clicking the tab and it opens directly into their website! Their latest custom addition is the banner in the toolbar. Using your own website is a great way to show-off your digital publication.
We like to use custom interfaces for our digital catalogs that we develop as well! We are not sure if you have seen our 2014 Gift Guide, but we went over the top in giving off that holiday vibe. And even beyond the interface graphics and hilarious gifts, we added a nice little hover effect to the product tags, giving it a some much needed holiday sparkle. And by-the-way, there are only 14 more Fridays until Christmas 2015! We better get to work on our next guide!
The options to extend your brand to the Compass interface are endless. And like we stated above, we take your feedback and ideas and try to create a digital masterpiece. So the next time you work with us, please let your project coordinator know how we can customize your interface. If you need a little guidance our graphics team is here to help. We want you to have a digital publication to reflect what’s truly unique to your company.
As always our friendly sales team is available to answer any questions you might have. If you have any questions please contact us at 1.888.391-0202 or email us at email@example.com.

Just 15 years ago, FaucetDirect.com was created as a class project by Christian Friedland. This young company grew fast in all the right ways and ten years later Build.com was launched. This change was needed to reflect the diverse breadth of products offered. Now Build.com is the third largest online home improvement retailer!
Build.com was in need of a solution that would integrate well with their website and offer the necessary features for customers. Their digital catalog is nestled nicely in an iframe on their website. A few of the main features include bookmarks, e-commerce, search functionality and crop which all ensure that customers can track orders and learn how to build new projects. If you haven’t seen their catalog, it’s a must for homeowners. Their style and suggestions are classy and they have some really cool projects!
