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 that when 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!
An effective web presence is not “set it and forget it.” Indeed, your Drupal site is a living, evolving application which must be properly and professionally maintained in order to properly serve your needs, both now and in the future.
Our team of Drupal experts provides the critical support role your business needs, allowing you to focus on your business - not site maintenance and management.
The REAL Drupal Experts
Drupal sites are built on Drupal for good reason - they are mission-critical applications that are the hub of the site owner's business. Unfortunately, the majority of our clients came to be our clients because they found out the hard way... their "expert" Drupal developers turned out to be… well… not quite so "expert", after all.
Drupal Site Maintenance and Management
Having a team of Drupal specialists available to provide expert advice, support, and issue resolution is fundamental to maintaining a purposeful digital presence. We can customize a defined package of support hours or be available as and when you need us.
Drupal Security Updates
As with any software, security updates must be performed to ensure you protect your site, users and business. In Drupal, it’s easy to click a big bold update button and cross your fingers…until something goes wrong and takes your site offline. Our security update process involves senior Drupal developers who understand the current state of your website, the maintenance and update needs of your site relative to security concerns, and then implementing changes in a methodical process using a multi-tier release workflow, which minimizes downtime and ensures your live site is secure.
Drupal Site Audit
Have an existing Drupal website? Perform a Drupal Site Audit executed by a team of Drupal experts to provide an objective understanding of the state of your site or application. We provide a comprehensive report that covers:
- Information Architecture
- ...and much more.
Sadly, we often on-board new clients who were completely unaware of the problems with their current Drupal site until we perform this site audit. Our objective reporting is a cost-effective way to ensure your digital presence remains efficient, effective, and manageable.
We offer only Drupal-specific hosting solutions. We do not try to be all things to all people. There are plenty of hosting providers that offer inexpensive hosting solutions that fit a variety of site technical requirements. Our hosting solutions are optimized for Drupal and allow our clients a single point of contact for their website or application needs. Our team is seamlessly woven into the unique requirements of the project, whether that is e-commerce, 3D rendering, or HIPAA compliance. Our hosting solutions are customized to you and can grow in real time as the needs of your business grow.
Domain Registration and Management
As part of our suite of support services we offer full or partnered management of your domains. When we manage your DNS configuration, we alleviate headaches for clients that rarely need to access or interact with these settings. This ensures a smooth release and management of sites and applications.
HTTPS is becoming the norm for all the right reasons and sites that do not have a valid SSL certificate are starting to be flagged by Google as “Not Secure.” Gone are the days where SSL is expensive or problematic. We offer full management and support of SSL certificates which allows your site to benefit from not only the encryption benefits, but also the SEO benefits it offers.

- Drupal in a Day

This library is invaluable to us at Thinkbean as it allows us to integrate into our internal Symfony based devops application which among other things, we use to monitor application status and health.
