(SD) Company Directory is an application designed for leading Invision Communities looking to build a set of local listings, stores, restaurants, shops, and attractions.  It can be used as a directory of any place with a physical location, powered by mapping services and user reviews.

  • Are you a brand?  Use Company Directory to showcase partners, vendors, and recommended suppliers for value-added relationships.

There are some industries that will especially benefit from the power of (SD) Company Directory:

The Company Directory can be used for anything which has a geographic location. It is perfect for us.

Our site has to do with foreigners who visit or live in Turkey. With this application we now have a directory of all of the places foreigners need to go to get a residence permit, a driver's license, etc... the water companies, the electric companies, shopping malls, etc.

Not only that, but we can also create pages for the numerous ancient sites of Turkey, as well as the entertainment locations, beaches, everything.

Local businesses have now expressed a strong desire to be in our directory. Many have referred friends to us. And a page, if you have all of the info and photos ready, only takes around 30 minutes to make. I'll be traveling around this summer showing our directory to various business owners and selling pages to them.

This application will be a real money-maker for us.

The support is also good. While we've have had a few implementation problems, Spanner has been quick to respond and get things working.

Works like a charm, this App adds value to my community and can be easy fitted for your needs.

In my communitie it´s like yellow pages for a centralized database of companies which offer services and products for my users.

Another benefit are the possibilites you get with search engine users, sometimes there are companies which haven´t a good ranking at google.. or are difficult to find, so you get extra clicks from the search engines when you know how to handle with the entries and descriptions.

Company Directory is used for pub´s restaurants, garages and dealers, retailers which are relevant for motorcyclist and tourist which are from or come to the region my community is for.

I was hesitant to buy this because of the previous review. I took the risk and I have to say I've been really impressed. There are one or two small things that I had questions on but the developer was quick and responsive to me. There's quite a big of a time difference so when I would wake up I would have a response which is great as that's when I tend to work on my board.

This is a good powerful addon but is very difficult to use because it is so comprehensive...the biggest and most important issue with it is that it doesn't have a community support thread here at Invision...for any support you really need to be able to read and write Polish. Before you buy just click on the support link and see if you can make sense of the developers web site as you will find once you buy the addon you will become extremely frustrated trying to find helpful tips, hints, help etc on using it...I would score this higher if there was a community support thread here at Invision

This is a very powerful application and well worth the money for any community trying to create a directory of anything.

While there were a few quirks... the developer has been very much responsive and open to feedback.  I look forward to continuing to implement this in our community and see the app grow more powerful.

Simply one of the best apps in the marketplace with many possibilities beyond a simple company directory.  This has allowed me to add a features to my site that my members (and non members) have been wanting for years.  Spanners support has been fantastic throughout the long developmental process.

My use of the app is to create an online database of tip sites for free wood chips and timber in the UK.

This looks really great so far! 

I am now looking at how i can use this in setting up our directory to have a free listing option and premium option. I am having trouble though as it seems the only premium option i can offer is highlighted.

Is there no way to add/remove fields and/or options for free and premium listings?

So far wasted all afternoon trying to this up and got absolutely no where. Google Maps API not accepted, once you post one company you cannot post anymore, insistence on using "state" function, 240 countries added, I only need 10...can't delete over 230. To top this up when visiting the "support" it is in Polish! Any chance of an English manual or read me?!?

I need the option to disable Maps for a category. I want to have both types. Submissions with maps in a category and no maps in others.

Not satisfied at all, at the moment. Edited setting disabling maps, countries and location. But they are still there when adding a company.
I want to create a websites directory and I can't do it until it's fixed.

Je n’arrive pas à faire fonctionner avec la version 4.4.2.

Response from the author:

Newest version ( working fine with Invision Community 4.4.2. What's the problem?

This would be perfect if I could take all the other businesses off the map. We only want to list the businesses from our members. 

And I'm not seeing the benefits of the packages. I'd like to have a free package, but also packages that provide more options but it doesn't seem like you can add options.
