Standard Specs – GTxcel Platform

GTxcel’s digital edition platform allows members to engage with their roster publication at home or on the go. Produced as a pure digital replica of the print edition, the page view in GTxcel allows you to engage with product and service listings or member information in the format it was intended.

With the option to view in a 1-page or 2-page format and ability to identify zoom level, GTxcel allows you to determine your best preferred reading experience. Also included is the ability to pull a PDF of the publication, or search by keyword to find specific listing details in one or across all of an association’s publications.

With GTxcel’s page view, there is also a number of digital ad opportunities to help you engage with your audience in a way that works best for you.
