Lightbox have worked with Media Contact since 2008 when we were approached to transform their book based product into a database driven web application. We worked closely with the Media Contact team to design and produce a site that enables their audience to access the information in a more accessible and user friendly way. The site enables subscribed users to search for people in the media in Ireland, add them to their own custom lists, make notes and send press releases to their lists of contacts. It is fully ecommerce enabled meaning users can pay for their monthly subscription with a credit card online.
Media Contact is now Ireland’s leading business in its space and the company’s reach continues to expand as more services and products are added all the time.
