Here's a small cross section of what we do:
Sugarloaf Mountain Resort, owned by Boyne, is the largest ski area east of the Rockies. It sits atop Maine's second highest peak at 4,237 feet and is the only lift-serviced above-treeline skiing in the east. Sugarloaf has more than 54 miles of trails. We built/maintain Sugarloaf's websites — the Blue Room, Sugarloaf2020, TrueBlue, Downhill Supply Company, U.S. Alpine Championships, and the main website.
SJCME is a private Catholic liberal arts college with roughly 3,000 students. Saint Joe’s was founded in 1912 by the Sisters of Mercy and sits on 474 acres on the shore of Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine. It is one of a handful of Catholic colleges in the Northeast. The college found their way to Dirigo because we’re an experienced Ektron / EPiServer enterprise website CMS system shop. We’re helping St. Joseph's to create digital experiences, to reach new audiences, and to grow admissions.
For the past 20 years Portland Discovery has offered narrated trolley tours of Portland Maine and scenic cruises on Casco Bay. The firm operates five trollies and two charter boats and can accommodate as many as 1,000 sightseers per day. Tickets are sold from custom-built POS software/terminals on the waterfront as well as the website. We manage both on and off-line ticket sales and perform a 24/7/365 support role.
The Santa Catalina Island Company was formed in 1894 to develop one of California’s Channel Islands southwest of Los Angeles. It is known for its wildlife, dive sites, and an awsome resort town. The company, founded by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, controls much of the island property. We continue to build success in the ski, resort, and hospitality sectors where we’re delivering more guests, more sales, more often.
Forbes & Condé Nast consistently rank Telluride Ski Resort as one of the top places to ski and stay in North America. In the summer of 2014 we launched Telluride on Dirigo's Ski Resort CMS Platform and our Trail & Resort Map Platform. We're constantly refining the website. We also maintain and develop The Peaks Resort & Spa. The ski and outdoor hospitality vertical is one of Dirigo's specialties.
In 2016 Big Sky Resort (Montana) hired the Dirigo team to markup its new website. Big Sky Resort is really big! It has one of the largest vertical drops in North America with some gnarly exposed slopes. The resort is known for giving skiers and riders access to more skiing than anywhere else in the United States. In 2016 we also worked with associated resorts Loon Mountain and Sugarloaf.
In September of 2016, Apple’s iOS 10 Mail app started supporting a line of code Email Service Providers (ESPs) use in the header of their emails that enables an instant one-click unsubscribe feature. It is called list-unsubscribe, or native unsubscribe; meaning the action to unsubscribe happens directly from within the mail app.
Did you see a jump in unsubscribes in the fall of 2016? We'll explain to you why that isn't necessarily cause for alarm.
We take these shots with our smartphones and they magically appear on our website. How cool is that?
