Orion Creative Group is committed to developing websites that are:
- Highly functional
- Unique; and
For this reason, we focus primarily on the Drupal platform. Drupal is the cutting-edge open source content management platform already powering millions of websites and applications, including 24% of the top 10,000 sites on the web according to the most recent report from BuiltWith.com. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world.
Because a website built on Drupal can be edited and managed by staff with little to no web development experience (just ask our copywriter!), it is the ideal platform for both simple brand sites and complex, highly functional applications. Social community sites, complex data entry, subscriber databases, multiple editors, internal search functions, high volume content storage, and integrated e-commerce are all possibilities within Drupal.
What sets Drupal apart is its collaborative and hands-on nature. Whether you have a large staff of editors or a small, founder-based enterprise, we will most likely recommend Drupal as a web solution. Our business is not to “hold the keys” to your website – the more dynamic and personal your web presence, and the more your internal team is integrated into site management, the more you are able to get out of your investment. And also, we love Drupal and use it to power our own site!
The key benefits to a Drupal site developed by Orion Creative Group include:
- The best of both worlds - A site that's easy to maintain on a day-to-day basis, plus a knowledgeable partner to help with future upgrades and improvements.
- Faster development timeline through leveraging open-source community modules and tools.
- Focus - Since many common website "basics" are provided by the Drupal framework, this lets us focus on the key aspects that differentiate your site and your company from competitors - not on building yet another login system or drop-down menu!
- Reduced maintenance costs - Your staff can handle the bulk of routine updates; and every build from Orion Creative Group includes free training on your site to ensure you can manage it with confidence. Anyone with basic computer experience will be up and running in no time and making edits, creating new content, and managing your site effortlessly.
- Expandability - The freedom to add more components and functionality to your site over time with ease; the Drupal community provides literally thousands of contributed modules to enhance your site.
- Security - The commitment of Drupal's enormous developer community helps to make it the most secure platform we've worked on; and any necessary security patches and updates are freely available on a regular basis. Compare this to a commercial CMS built by a single company with limited resources, and Drupal will win out every time.
- Portability - While we certainly hope you'll always be with Orion Creative Group, we believe a website owner should have the freedom to choose any service provider, rather than be stuck with a proprietary design that can only be edited by its original creator, and Drupal is a standardized platform that makes this possible.
- Participation - With a little training, we think you'll have a blast keeping your website up-to-the-minute with all the great news about your company!
