Globopolis.com, the first multilingual content and commerce website providing lifestyle information and online commerce for cities in Central and Eastern Europe, has chosen Pyxis International to lead the redesign of its highly touted site.
Pyxis, an international web service company with offices in Chicago, Hyderabad, Prague and Zürich, will be using its international experience to help its Prague neighbor Globopolis.com provide its customers with enhanced services including faster site searches and easier navigation.
Fresh from their US$6 million venture capital infusion, Globopolis.com continues to expand its network of city coverage, offering both tourists and city residents insider information on how to get the best out of some of the world's most interesting cities.
To help accomplish this, Globopolis.com chose Pyxis. Having successfully completed projects with Nestlé Worldwide, the Chicago Transit Authority, and 12Snap.com, Pyxis brings with it the international experience and technical expertise that a multilingual and user-responsive site like Globopolis.com demands.
"After working on projects throughout the U.S. and Western Europe, we're happy to be working with Globopolis.com, our neighbor here in Prague," says Julia Bryan, Vice President of European Operations. "The Internet, e-commerce, and wireless access are the biggest things happening right now in Central Europe, and Globopolis.com is leading the charge by leading its users to the local and regional information they need."
"We were extremely impressed with Pyxis' comprehensive knowledge of available technologies, professional process and 'do-whatever-it-takes' attitude," said Scott Rogers, Globopolis.com CEO. "We look forward to working with this team that has the very same attributes as the Globopolis.com team."
The first phase of the new design is scheduled to roll out by September 15, corresponding to the launch of a major ad-campaign for Globopolis.com.
