Success Stories

Over the course of just under 50 hours of migration time, Zaxyn Media was able to help one of the largest 4x4/overlanding websites on the net move to the latest version of Joomla.

ExPo-frontpage

In total, we migrated over 2,500 articles to the new platform with very few manual interactions required. This involved ensuring over 3,900 search engine friendly (SEF) URLs were properly redirected to the new format to maintain valuable search engine ranking. Along with migrating nearly 100 users that post content on a daily basis, we were able to add key improvements to the site.

Like the previous cards we did for FunTreks Guidebooks, Zaxyn is excited to add Fly Fishing maps to our GPS data card portfolio.

WAPCardsWilderness Adventure Press has been producing amazing Fly Fishing guidebooks and map books for years, so adding full-featured data cards to their lineup is the next logical step. These cards correspond to statewide map books, and can be used with or without the book (although having a printed map books is always advised). By including far more waypoints than can be added to a paper map, any data-hungry angler can get plenty of info right from his GPS. On Garmin units, WAP has included freely available TOPO maps from GPSFileDepot.com as a service to their users. So Topo + thousands of POIs for fishing in an entire state makes these cards a steal for under $30. Many POIs include detailed information on fishing access, phone numbers & websites for outfitters, and even gauging station information.

FunTreks GPS Data Card

Using freely available tools and topo maps sourced from GPSFileDepot.com, we were able to help FunTreks Guidebooks create GPS Data Cards that include waypoints & tracks from their guidebooks. While FunTreks has offered waypoint downloads for years, adding the full tracklog (breadcrumb) along with topo maps for Garmin units makes this a really great add-on product for their amazing guidebooks.

Using the power of Joomla! Content Management System, excellent graphic design, and an amazing product line. Zaxyn partnered with FunTreks Publishing to revise their website while maintaining their legacy eCommerce system. We were able to create an easy to use web presence that allows FunTreks to update the site from anywhere, even on the trail!

Zaxyn was able to partner with BudBuilt.com to redesign their website and create an all new eCommerce shopping cart system. By using the open source Joomla! and VirtueMart applications, costs for the new system were minimal while providing a very exciting user experience. The old system strickly used PayPal as the payment method, and was very tedious to update. Now the team at BudBuilt can focus on being more productive without the website holding them back.

After using the Joomla! & VirtueMart system for over 2 years, the ToytecLifts.com site was in dire need of a facelift. Since the Joomla! system separates the content from the style, it was trivial to create an entire new look and feel for the site.

Other improvements included enhanced navigation to support a growing product line, fully integrated analytics and statistics packages, and click tracking. Overall Toytec has increased sales an average of 39% per month since the new design was deployed.

 

I first started synchronizing my desktop calendar with my PDA when I bought my first Palm Pilot (The Palm IIIc) over 10 years ago. Back then, I was thrilled that I could create an event on the Palm, plug it in to my computer with a SERIAL cable, and 5-7 minutes later, it would be all synchronized.

 

I took over a barely working Content Management System (CMS) website for Toytec Lifts and within 3 weeks drastically improved their website e-commerce process. I successfully integrated their online shopping cart software (Virtuemart) with their Quickbooks and shipping solutions. This allows Toytec to automatically import all shopping cart transactions into Quickbooks and UPS Worldship software for much faster processing. I eliminated several redundant tasks and greatly improved efficiency.
