Please describe the scope of their work.
I do a lot of the basic updates and content changes for the site in-house, and Celebrate Drupal does all the back-end stuff to make sure it's all working as it should. This is the first time we're using a content management system. We were using something similar to that before, but not as extensive as what we have now. Celebrate Drupal recommended using the Drupal platform, and we really didn't consider another CMS since that was where they had expertise.
They help me when I have problems with uploading multimedia content, for example. They updated our membership directory and really got the site up and running. They maintain everything in the background, and they make sure all my updates are operational and that everything is running smoothly.
They also take care of the visual components of the site. We worked very closely with them, and they gave recommendations as to how they thought everything should look. We told them what we were looking for, and they came up with the whole design. They also provided training for us. We're currently working on some updates to the site that weren't part of the original scope of the project.
How did you come to choose Celebrate Drupal?
The person who first suggested this project to us also recommended Celebrate Drupal as the most qualified agency to undertake what we needed to have done. I did some basic research on their business and reached out to them.
Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?
I think our initial investment was around $10,000 to $15,000, but it'll increase as we continue to expand their involvement.
What is the status of this engagement?
The site was officially completed and launched in June 2014, around the fifth of the month. We still have them on retainer for maintenance and support. I have periodic conference calls with them to discuss ongoing work they're doing for me, like customizations to the admin panels or other features for end-users.
