The net-linx story

From Print to Online Publishing

2010 and beyond

Directories are still alive – whether print, online or mobile. Sales Representatives are expected to sell a complex product Suite.

net-linx launched its innovative sales tools, nxPowerPac and nxWebPac, which enable the publishers sales team to drive advertising sales across all media platforms, on-site or via a web-session. net-linx now counts 24 successful installations of Directory Business Management and Publishing Systems worldwide.


The era of the Internet has begun. Directories are almost written off. Quite the contrary, telephone books are still enjoying great popularity. New media formats such as classifieds or Online advertising complement classical print publishing formats.

net-linx is expanding the product portfolio to also comprise electronic media and started with the development of Internet Portal Solutions. Due to the new advertising graphic development system, nxAdSmart, a well-established publisher in Canada can increase its productivity by up to 30 percent.


It all started with Pagination.

net-linx is honored with the prestigious ITEA Award for nxPageSmart, the first artificial intelligence-based pagination engine, and successfully implement the present core product nxDSMP for the first time. Due to the full-featured end-to-end Enterprise Resource Planning solution, publishers are now able to manage their data in only one integrated database.
