About The Client

The client is a well-established Brussels-based platform of more than 130 regional stakeholder organizations from 24 European countries. It is composed of regional authorities, universities, research organizations, chambers of commerce and clusters. It basically facilitates regional collaboration and knowledge exchange for the benefit of all its members and partner organizations. Their mission is to strengthen the regional and local dimension in the EU Research and Innovation policy and programs using the 4Ps approach - project development, policy, profile-raising, and partnership building.

Background

The goal of the project was to first set up a perfectly lined up content management system for the client's growing content needs. The site was content-rich with news, events, partners, working groups, etc, which contained intricate relationships amongst each other. Apart from that, we needed to set up some complicated functionalities like invoicing, content moderation and approval mechanism, and calendar features. An extensive search for various content was a must for this project.

Solution Design

Foundation Level CMS Setup & Reusable Content Sections

The client, being experienced in Drupal already, wanted to explore the power of the Drupal CMS to the limit. He wanted to be able to create and conjure up elements on the fly through various reusable sections; content types that can be placed on any page; and new pages with new designs could be created. We came up with a concept called sectional data in which we created a set of content types that had a certain set of fields. Each content type allows the selection of a certain number of templates. Finally, nodes of these content were exposed as blocks. The block, when displayed, will pick up the template selected in the node. The blocks were made reusable through the Reusable Blocks module. The end result was a powerful display system giving the client the power to create and design standard pages on the fly.

Yearly Calendar

The client wanted to display all his events in a yearly calendar format. We preferred our usual calendar plugin - Fullcalendar. However, in the Drupal Fullcalendar integration, the full calendar version that was available did not have any yearly calendar view. We found one fork of the fullcalendar, but that version was very different from the one used in drupal integration. Our team wrote a full integration of the new fullcalendar fork and finally enabled the client to have a yearly view. We also enabled the click event details to feature for the events through the fullcalendar API where the events displayed as title, but on clicking it, the details would pop up in a model.

In-depth Invoicing System

The client wanted to have an in-depth invoicing system and preferred his own custom solution as opposed to standard plugins available as it had a lot of constraints. We wrote the invoicing system from the ground up providing all the standard features to raise an invoice, price calculation, reminder, drafts, etc. It covered all the functionalities asked by the client and our team engineered the solution to make it extremely user-friendly and easy to use.

Content Moderation

As a base, we used the awesome workbench moderation module for this. But this was heavily customized through its APIs and through rules integration.

Future Plan

We have been working together with this client for the last 2 years on various other endeavors for various portals of its members and stakeholders and we continue doing so till now. We also continue to maintain the portal to date.

Outcome

The client was extremely satisfied with the outcome. This is not the first time we were working together, so throughout the project, we developed great coordination. Our team constantly exceeded expectations in terms of the features that needed to be rolled out. And finally, once things were completed, the client appreciated our work especially the content management flow we did for reusable content sections was super helpful to the client and he was surprised how easily he could make use of it. That is what success means to us!
