Launch Project

Sick of facing the turbulent nature of client work alone, the prestigious drupal design and development shop Forum One simply asked for help. And DrupalSquad answered. Since 2013, a dedicated engineering team has bolstered Forum One’s existing resources providing the support necessary to manage fluctuations in customer needs. Feast or famine, we eat together.

NICD

Soon after its establishment in 2011, the National Institute for Civil Discourse needed to establish its web presence. After building their site, our partners at NuCivic recommended them to DrupalSquad for launch support. Confident they were in good hands, the NICD signed to a standard plan that continues to this day. Allowing the NICD to work to depolarize discussion and inspire elected officials to collaborate, all with the confidence their site is updated and secure.

Firmstep

In 2014, the U.K. based consulting firm, Firmstep, realized they had a problem we all wish we had. Their growth outpaced their capacity. As long time users of our a la carte maintenance and development ticket system, they turned to DrupalSquad for help. Happy to take the relationship to the next level, DrupalSquad managed the migration of over 30 of Firmstep’s client sites to one of our optimized drupal hosts, Pantheon. Then instituted a full time engineering team to give Firmstep the flexibility to match their growth. And the confidence to keep that growth growing.

MIT

In 2013, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) standardized on Drupal. As issues with the new platform popped up, the resources of the Office of Information Technology became split between support tickets and their project to develop a private cloud service. MIT quickly realized they didn’t have the appropriate capacity to meet their strict timelines. With deadlines looming, they contracted DrupalSquad to relieve the support and maintenance burden, and allow the OIT to focus on the cloud service development.

OCA

When the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) relaunched their website in 2014, they trusted DrupalSquad with the construction of a clearinghouse to service several thousand businesses across the natural and organic foods market. Built entirely from scratch on Drupal 7, the site was populated with over 25,000 articles migrated from a proprietary ColdFusion based content management system and integrates various third-party systems including Salsa CRM. The OCA site now serves as a hub to hundreds of thousands of activists who are looking to inform communities and activate consumers to change how we interact with food.
