• Client: Personal Democracy Media
  • Date: May 2015
Launch Project

A few months before their famous, annual New York conference, Personal Democracy Media broadcasted an email campaign promoting early-bird registration. But their website failed to process registrations. With their hosting provider unable to help, each passing moment meant lost business or dissatisfied clients. PDM needed a reliable Drupal developer on the fly. DrupalSquad had helped PDM previously, and were first on their list. We quickly diagnosed a conflict between their version of php and a server upgrade. We instituted a short-term workaround and recommended PDM migrate to one of our preferred Drupal optimized host. Crisis averted for the second time, PDM signed on to a long term maintenance plan so we could keep them out of the ditch and ahead of the curve.

Related Work

Forum One

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.

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.

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.

AIR

As one of the world’s largest behavioral research organizations, we at the American Institutes for Research (AIR) provide data to hundreds of organizations including think-tanks, school districts, federal agencies, and state governments. In 2014 we reorganized to better develop and maintain the hundreds of websites we provide our clients. With Drupal as our preferred platform, we sought a trusted developer with good standing in the community, who could handle the volume of development work we had to offer. Enter DrupalSquad. Currently, we work with a dedicated team of talented Drupal engineers to provide support, maintenance, and consulting to dozens of our client sites. And when a project needs more muscle? The capacity for development is a click away.
