Development work and training is provided on an ad-hoc basis and is for a set amount of days.

End-of-contract data extraction All data will be returned to the customer via a backup of the MYSQL database and the supporting software, excluding the portal connecter software, which is located in our GIT repository, This extraction can also be performed on an on going basis by the end user at any point of the contract lifecycle.

As we use open source technology, the system can be restored freely on a new platform by another vendor or the end user. The connection to CRM data will no longer function if the SaaS is terminated.
End-of-contract process When a project contract ends, we normally enter into a support contract with our clients, which includes security, hosting, maintenance and ticket management.

In the case a client wishes to seek services elsewhere, a handover meeting is booked in with the new agency and we collaborate with them to ensure smooth transitioning.

Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation Drupal is an open source Content Management Framework, unlike a typical Content Management System (CMS) it is geared more towards customisation and configurability.

Business users can easily author and edit content with no technical experience required.

Out of the box Drupal (7 and 8) provides key features to meet most common requirements such as users, roles, permissions, content management, workflow, clean URLs, a multi-level menu system, user registration & authentication and search etc.

These ‘out of the box’ benefits mean we can focus your budget, not on creating core functionality, but on customising and creating a great user experience and creative design for your audiences.


Independence of resources Due to our services being in the cloud we can add additional resources to a tenant as and when required.

Other tenants on the same platform are restricted to a set amount of resources.
