When Dex One merged with SuperMedia, our long-time client turned to us to develop a WordPress website for the new blended companies. Since it was imperative to get new corporate and investor information online quickly, our teams combined forces to unveil the new site at www.dexmedia.com in under a month. A national powerhouse providing social, local and mobile marketing services to more than 650,000 small businesses, the new Dex Media launches with our best wishes.
