Online Directories and Listing Systems
Ionic have Developed a suite of functionality for producing Online Directory and Listing Systems. Like all our web systems this follows our philosophy of employing tried and tested modules to produce reliable and intuitive interfaces.
Types of Online Directories
Listing systems vary from centrally managed systems where administrators carry out and control the process of adding listings to fully delegated systems where the listing owners control and maintain their listings. Each system will lie somewhere on the continuum between control and autonomy; we are able to tailor the level of control to your requirements.
Online directories have a wide range of applications including:
- Directory of Members
- Business Listings
