The company is founded in July at a small location in Saint Charles, Mo. as Concept 2000 LLC. A small group of software engineers had teamed up to develop technology to turn print pages into a digital presentation.
Concept 2000 developed "look and feel" digital versions for white pages directories. These digital directories were being created and published onto CD-ROM for distribution to regional locations covered by the directory companies. The company outgrew the location in St. Charles and moved to Creve Couer, Mo.
Concept 2000 continued to grow in size and developed a similar product for look-and-feel yellow pages for the directory industry. The company moved to Fenton, Mo., its current location.
The year 2000 was in the past, and the company renamed itself from Concept 2000 LLC to Dirxion LLC. The new name (durr-ex-shun) is a nod to the company's foundations in the directory industry.
Dirxion developed an Adobe Flash version of the previous look-and-feel executable that was being distributed on CD-ROM's and USB flash drives. The new Flash version contained more rich media and interactivity, while being a web application that could be distribution online via dedicated URLs. Dirxion started producing online catalogs for retail and B2B publishers.
The company added travel guides, flyers, journals and magazine to product offering, creating industry-specific features to support its Flash interface.
Dirxion developed its first HTML-based interface and started supporting both the Flash interface for desktop usage and the HTML interface for mobile compatibility. Dirxion adds newspaper e-Editions to the product offering and develops searchable archives and subscription system support.
Dirxion acquires the assets of Immersifind. Immersifind was a digital publisher that specialized in its Internet Yellow Pages platform. Dirxion redeveloped Immersifind's existing product, transforming it into the Local Search product its customers use today.
A new, fully HTML5 interface is released to customers, making its predecessors (the Flash and Flash/partial HTML version) obsolete. The new look-and-feel interface provides needed mobile compatibility and flexibility to develop for variety of industries.
Dirxion continues supporting HTML5 interface with variety of feature and product releases, including but not limited to Tear Pages for B2B publishers, the bookshelf with library search for content libraries, integrated order forms, Quick View/e-Lightbox integration of e-commerce pages and additional interface designs including the new Minimal UI.
