Rebuild their current site (built in Drupal) in a modern, agile and intuitive system that is easy to update and maintain. Drupal has many limitations and concerns due to it being outdated compared to newer content management systems. One of the most significant concerns for using Drupal CMS, or content management system, is the lack of developers who specialize in the system, which leads to costly updates and outdated/vulnerabilities. Another large limitation is the difficulty of making custom page templates on this CMS, as well as updating existing pages.
We were honored to work with Maillie on their website creation, and help their vision and goals shine with a new and modern CMS, or content management system.
New Content Management System
We build all of our websites on the same content management system (WordPress) that was implemented for Maillie. The CMS offers the ability to create new custom templates without going through the design, development, and quality control process. This was a substantial improvement for Maillie’s marketing team as they needed the ability to develop and modify their page templates quickly and efficiently (which was not possible through their old Drupal system).
Before / After
Our WordPress websites all include an agile page builder, and intuitive interfaces that allows for quick and efficient updates without needing an entire design and development team. We also imported a massive template library, that helped Maillie seamlessly create, add, and alter pages to meet their wishes. Syndicate Marketing also implemented analytics that provide instant feedback to the company. These analytics can be used to make data driven decisions to help redevelop their pages to better match SEO trends and the current markets for the certified public accountant business.
Working with Chris David to convert our website from Drupal to WordPress was a pleasure. He provided great advice and delivered more than he promised. Maillie LLP will continue to use Syndicate Marketing Company to host our site and for future projects.Laurie Harvey
I worked with Chris of Syndicate SEO and Marketing on Maillie LLP's website development project. We were transitioning from a Drupal website platform to WordPress. The website redevelopment was no easy feat with over 1,000 pages to transfer, hefty lead generation requests and many key stakeholders to appease. Throughout the entire project Chris was proactive, detail-oriented and empathetic to the firm's needs. He went above and beyond the scope of the project and was always available to answer any questions I had, no matter how quick or time consuming. He made an extremely complex and lengthy project run smooth. I highly recommend Chris David and Syndicate SEO and Marketing for all of your web development needs!Erin Mariani
