The original site was built in MT4. The business requirements were:
We were eager and curious to understand the REAL business need for moving away from MT4 to JOOMLA. The client's reasoning was that JOOMLA was a better choice for content management and its presentation capabilities were more suited to the new template design of the site.
After understanding the client's true business needs, alongside their project requirements, Alignity was able to make a case to use Drupal as the better technology option. We were able to make a convincing presentation on the differences between the CMSs. and how well Drupal could address the taxonomies and tagging system, along with many other benefits. Based on our analysis the client decided to go with Drupal . We developed a plat that would include knowledge transfer / training them through the implementation, since this was not a known prior solution to them.
In this particular case, Alignity was committed to making our client feel as comfortable and confident with the change in technology from their initial expectations. We ensured the project scope was clear and the proposed solution was properly understood by both parties. Our project proposal included:
We also provided the insight of different components that we had to work upon in Drupal, which were as follows:
We provided weekly status reporting to our client, full transparency of the project at all times and also showcased the output on our test bed to re-assure our client of our progress and end results.
We had no surprises or change requests from the client, as everything was clearly defined in the initial scope of the requirement. The client was updated regularly with the project status reports and corresponding deliverables on the test URL. The final results were as follows :
It was a thorough and successful project implementation, and in this particular case, it goes to show that it really does help to understand the client's needs well and suggest alternate options that may solve their business challenges more efficiently and seamlessly.
