Once upon a time, the authoring experience (AX) in Drupal left much to be desired. Content editors using Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 glanced longingly across at WordPress editing screens wistfully hoping for some of that ease of use. The flexibility of Drupal from a content management standpoint was never in doubt, but we all just wished the edit screen looked so much better and behaved in a manner we were accustomed to when using other modern digital products and services. Well, finally the wait is over!
Congratulations! You have a beautiful, shiny new website that has many bells and quite a few whistles. It got launched on time and under budget! Phew, thankfully that is over and done with…
Er, not really.
You could let it sit on the world wide web and do its thing. “Build it and they will come” and all that – but seriously, your shiny new website does need to be maintained. It needs to be polished; it needs to be updated; it needs to be managed to ensure you are getting the best possible return on your investment.

Websites are invaluable to your company’s image and, potentially, the entire business. Finding the right partner to help you conceive and build out your website can be daunting as there are major consequences for choosing the wrong one.

The internet is an amazing medium for building applications. Whether it’s a simple marketing site, or a sophisticated business solution… these applications are accessible on just about any device with an internet connection.

After many weeks and months of meetings, the decision has been made to finally replace your old website with a shiny new one. Out with the old static site from several years ago and in with a new robust, modern web application which will form the hub for your online presence. You have done your due diligence and your platform of choice is Drupal (good choice we say!).
What’s the difference between Drupal and WordPress? Why would a business choose one over the other? Once you’ve seen one Content Management System (CMS), you’ve seen them all, right? These are some of the most common questions we hear from prospects and clients. Unfortunately, there is not a winner-takes-all answer here.

Excellent user experience (UX) is a major part of what makes an online business interaction a customer service win. A multitude of companies and services are at the fingertips of anyone who owns a computer or smartphone - 24 hours a day. If a visitor has to spend a long time trying to utilize the information or services on a website... well, they just won’t. They will move on to a competitor whose website meets their needs.
