Coalmarch Productions®, a leading service provider for online solutions, has contracted with the Research Triangle Park Foundation to redesign, develop and maintain a comprehensive Website. The Web site will feature a Drupal based content management system (CMS). The Foundation manages the research Triangle Park with a vision to help provide better life for all North Carolinians through sustainable knowledge and technology-based development that effectively balances human needs and humanities with economic opportunities.
“We're very excited about the direction that the Research Triangle Foundation wants to take their Web presence. The tools we're building for them are going to allow for an unprecedented level of communication with anyone interested in locating in or around the Research Triangle Park,” said Thomas Ingham, chief technologist for Coalmarch Productions. “From calendars for managing events to an online store for contributing to the community through donations, this website will handle everything for them.”
Ingham added that using Drupal as the software basis for the website means that not only will their site be feature rich and allow their marketing team to manage the content, but as the platform matures new functionality can be added quickly. “This creates a sustainable web resource that won't have to be replaced down the road; and that's something we're even more excited about.”
