Allard Prize
Just imagine: THE most prestigious awards in the world, in the field of human rights, and us being granted the honour to give the corresponding website a performance boost! And a traffic boost, as well, by improving the user experience provided there, making it easily accessible for visitors all over the globe. We won't lie to you: the honour was…Allard Prize
What we did:
  • we updated the existing allardprize.org website to the latest version of Drupal 7
  • we performed all the necessary updates to Drupal core, to the contributed and custom modules, part of the user interface and the existing set of features
  • we ran the latest security patches, as well
  • we enabled the GTranslate module and thus implemented the translation feature that our client requested
  • we migrated the specified content and found a way of processing the data within the given Pantheon hosting plan
  • we conducted an in-depth performance audit on the website and we identified areas of improvement
  • we did some Drupal performance optimization work, taking a series of necessary measures to speed up the website's page load and reliability/blog/boost-drupal-performance

The result: the Allard Prize for International Integrity website now runs significantly faster and provides a seamless user experience to its visitors, irrespective of their geographical location.

OISE
The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, Canada's prestigious and research-intensive faculty of teaching and learning, assigned us with building their new website. In this respect, the requirements revolved around their overall goal to deliver a better user experience on their new website: the content-packed web pages had load faster…OISE
What we did:
  • a high performance Drupal 8 website, with optimized (content-heavy) page loading times

  • more intuitive navigation for both the professor and student visitors; from graduate programs to news and events, to specific useful information related to leisure, learning opportunities, and support services, users can now easily find the content they search for on the Institute's newly “refurbished” website

  • a user-friendly layout

  • a website packed with all the tools that content editors will need to easily and neatly structure their content (ex. both the Paragraphs module and the Block field module got enabled)

Intelex Community
An online meeting place for EHS and quality professionals, where they can connect, collaborate and share gained knowledge with their peers. Members get to ask questions to leading industry experts and to access highly diversified curated content ranging from infographics to market research to news, to whitepapers and webinars... The community…Intelex Community
What we did:
  • we worked towards improving the cache mechanism for higher page load speed

  • we added 2 new different sections: “Companies” and “Groups”

  • we integrated specific legacy platforms into the Drupal 7-based membership website: Pardot, SalesForce, ServiceNow

  • we connected the Intelex Community website with Axure Data Hub; now every time that a piece of content gets added, removed, or edited on Drupal, it automatically synchronizes on Axure Data Hub, as well, via a custom-built REST Endpoint

  • we integrated it with Custom Windows Azure API, as well, thus turning Drupal into a centralized system

  • we simplified and streamlined the whole content workflow

  • we better structured the existing membership system, organizing both members and content into multiple different groups

Hamilton
Our client needed a new service landing page and content page for the official website of the city of Hamilton, Ontario. In this respect, the plan included enhancing the existing template, to better support their marketing capabilities, and improving the current theme, as well. As for the “new” functionalities to be implemented, many of them were…Hamilton
What we did:
  • built and themed a new landing page listing all the departments (Cemeteries, Museums, etc.)

  • … one which overlaps the existing main header and “lives” within the same environment

  • provided a new page layout, with department-specific branding

  • ensured that the editorial staff could easily update the theme sections

  • cross-developed the new landing page for Drupal 8

  • provided a mobile version, as well, where the editor(s) could easily switch between the 2 versions of the menu color

  • implemented a functionality enabling the user to swap out, according to the specific department branding

  • implemented a functionality that would collapse the main header on Hamilton.ca and trigger a brand new page layout, along with the department-specific branding

  • enabled the editorial team to include up to 5 department-specific items overlapping the main header

  • set up and themed a new content page carrying the same features as the current basic one on the website, but without the side menus

The result: a more user-friendly, visually-appealing alternative to the current website of the city of Hamilton, one that better highlights the services provided there (culture, recreation, museums, etc.)

Mary MacLeod's Shortbread
Ask anyone in Toronto... no, in fact, ask anyone in Canada about "Mary MacLeod". Not only that they'll tell you that it's the name of a highly reputed brand of artisanal shortbread cookies, but they'll instantly... feel their mouths water. Now, you can imagine that the chance to contribute our share of Drupal development experience and expertise…Mary MacLeod's Shortbread
What we did:
  • installed multiple discount, coupon, and checkout extensions

  • integrated the Canada Post shipping plugin, which displays order shipping rates in real-time

  • developed a custom module around a "date pickup" functionality; basically, our client wanted to be able to limit customers' choices of weekdays for picking up their ordered products to specific days (and hours) only

  • ... also, the newly implemented functionality was not to interfere with the one that was already enabling them to block out certain dates from being selected by customers for order pickup

  • created user profile fields and ensured that users could easily edit their own account profile data

  • ensured that users could easily view their order history

  • monthly Drupal maintenance and support: we're regularly updating Drupal core and checking the integrity of the Drupal module ecosystem
