When the RCOA approached S8080, they had a clear set of requirements and a strong affinity for the open-source ethos. They sought a transferable solution and opted for an open-source CMS, with Drupal as the perfect match due to its flexibility and advanced features. Our collaboration began with a detailed user experience phase, followed by designing and developing a website that leveraged Drupal's capabilities.
The website we created for the RCOA featured complex functionalities such as a searchable document store, tiered workflow and moderation system, secure forums, and a calendaring and events system. We also extended our services to develop partner websites for other college bodies, all based on the same Drupal platform. Extensive security testing was conducted prior to launch, and the hosting infrastructure was carefully configured. Throughout the project, the Colleges project team collaborated closely with our experts, resulting in efficient and agile workflows. The positive outcome was further reinforced by feedback from Bob Williams, The RCoA Professional Standards Manager.
