Shopping Carts / eCommerce
There are a lot of traps that can come with the creation of an eCommerce site. Drupal offers us the flexibility to adapt the site to your particular needs.The Ubercart module for Drupal 6 and commerce module for Drupal 7 provide a means for Drupal to handle transactions with end users and process payments through virtually every payment gateway out there. With the help of additional (sometimes custom) modules, we can interface Drupal to most existing ecommerce/punchout/POS systems allowing seamless access to your products and services to the web. Ubercart, like Drupal is robust and highly customizable. Due to the flexibility and power of Drupal+Ubercart/Commerce, we can easily have you selling products online, registering for events online or accepting donations with the security of eMUNICATIONS' PCI compliant servers.
Custom Drupal Module Development
eMUNICATIONS has extensive experience in developing custom PHP modules for Drupal. We work hard to ensure that our sites are built leveraging the power and stability of the community supported modules. But for those situations where there is not a Drupal Module available for integration per the client's specifications, we will custom develop the module. Because we develop to the Drupal standards, these modules are portable, scalable and can be altered by other programmers familiar with PHP and Drupal framework. eMUNICATIONS is so adept at Drupal module development that we have sponsored several speaking sessions on the topic at various conferences and frequently develop Drupal modules for other website developers.
Custom administration interfaces
One criticism of Drupal that you may hear is that the administration is too complex. This is not a fair criticism of Drupal, as the administrative interfaces are created by your web developer - not the framework. As a major Houston Drupal developer, a specialty of eMUNICATIONS is working with clients to discover their workflow needs and designing administration screens to specifically address them. Drupal is a robust environment and can get very complex. eMUNICATIONS designs simple, effective administrative interfaces for our websites so that our clients may take full advantage of the Drupal components and features without arcane, complicated menu structures or obtuse UI design.. You don't want to be a Drupal developer, you want to add and update your content. Don’t settle for out of the box, demand a tailored and simplified approach to management based on your actual use cases. Call on a real, user friendly Drupal Developer.
Multiple user roles for distributing content management duties
Large, complex websites for large complex corporations typically have many people involved in the management of their site content. Some of these people should have access to all of the site, while others should be limited. eMUNICATIONS can set up roles for each minor administrator so that sections and services of the website are maintained by designated individuals. The super administrator can create and assign these roles giving a fine grained level of control to content management.
