Contact/Directory Import

May 01, 2008 | 02:30 PM

Linear has a system for importing mass contact information into the database. This allows our clients to upload thousands of companies rather than keying the information anew.

Now we've added the ability to simultaneously create a business directory listing during the upload process. For example, you might want an imported business to appear in the Restaurant Directory (See here).

For clients using Linear as their primary contact management system, this means rapid adoption of new data.

Especially with new clients, bringing their existing data into the web site quickly is paramount to launching a successful web site. Of course, Linear still provides custom import for existing editorial, obituaries, etc.

times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
