Welsh Government - Wales.com

Wales.com is the Welsh Government’s official gateway to Wales. Discussing life in Wales and why it’s a great place to visit, live, study and do business.

The site uses Drupal Content Management System allowing us to customise many elements for them without the cost that enterprise level CMS platforms tend to introduce.

Building on the Drupal core CMS and community modules we developed additional functionality required very quickly in a very agile approach that worked well for the client.

The site has recently been updated with a responsive mobile version and iPad and iPhone friendly interactive elements.
