Drupal Website Development & Database Integration

Our custom-designed website solution is built specifically for your company and services in mind. Membership management, industry-specific business practices, or external data import - possibilities are endless.

Midsize Web Development

Advantages of Drupal are scalability, flexibility, and security, when compared to other CMSs. We utilize Drupal for advanced content management and complex database integration.

Drupal as the framework

We utilize Drupal, the most trusted Content Management System. It's so trusted that it's used by Nasa and Tesla's websites. Using Drupal enables us to implement any features you may need now and in the future. If your current website's functions are not meeting your expectations, please consider our custom Drupal website development service.

Providing functions that are tailored to our client's needs

We build a website with the best features for your business needs, and add new features and make changes to existing features when you need to implement them.

Feature Examples

  • Membership services
  • Member permission management that members can manage their own profiles
  • Customized forms such as user questionnaires, job applications, or customer support inquiries
  • Google Analytics, SEO, linking to SNS
  • Connecting with online services via API
  • Special event page, targeted landing page, posting by external writers

Maintenance, updates, security, and more

CMS website maintenance is essential for retaining your customers. To ensure your website in a relevant condition, we need to perform regular check-ups. We will support all of your maintenance needs once the development of your Drupal website is done, such as module updates, system updates, security updates, and changes in hosting environment.

Database

 

Database

Database integration on Linux server

For customers who need their own data management, we provide installation, configuration and migration services of a system using a MySQL database on a Linux hosting server. We integrate your data into the website and build a system, such as linking your own database to the website, importing external data from a third party, processing collection of data sets, and creating a report.

Consultation on system structure

We provide consultation for cases, such as the website created with a template moving to a fully customized website, the existing system becoming obsolete and being difficult to maintain, or the original web developer being no longer accessible. We analyze your current system and suggest the optimal system configuration.

We also support more complex structures - connecting multiple databases and web servers, optimizing for performance, and interweaving multiple systems.
