Business Impact:

  • Once I moved our static HTML site into Drupal CMS, requests to join the team increased dramatically.  As well, the organization now was able to show its current and future potential sponsors the  strength and talent of the racing squads via the race journals, results page, events calendar and many more features. Membership increases yearly and team members feel they have ownership of their site as a way of showcasing their local, national and international accomplishments. Finally, the team director and the team captains can manage their own content on the site with their own admin accounts. The Drupal content management system has given the athletes and the directors easy access to update the site content.
