This is one of several larger Drupal sites we’ve rolled out this year as our clients are seeing the benefits of building on an open source platform – including WordPress for the smaller websites and Umbraco when we need to develop bespoke functionality using the Microsoft .NET framework.
The RCoA team had a very well defined set of requirements and an enthusiasm for the open source ethos. We worked with them to refine the project scope before deciding on the final CMS – and Drupal came out on top.
The website uses some of Drupal’s more advanced features and modules and functionality includes a searchable document store with filters, forums with secure areas and a calendar and events system.
It’s always a pleasure to receive positive feedback at the end of a major project and after launch we had the following email from Bob Williams, The RCoA Professional Standards Manager…
”We have received many compliments about the new website from College staff, College officials, clinicians, other medical colleges and outside agencies. There is no doubt without the superb working relationship we had between our teams; we would not be where we are today. Please pass our thanks on to all your team members”.

One of our oldest clients, Lee Valley Regional Park, had a very important part to play during the Olympics, as four world class London 2012 venues were within its boundaries.
The VeloPark, White Water Centre, Hockey Centre and Tennis Centre saw incredible action during the Games and now the venues are being handed back for everyone to enjoy.
S8080 were contracted for a major website redesign, from the ground up, to be completed in good time for the Olympics and our own Microsoft .NET CMS was deployed due to the Parks very bespoke requirements.
The bespoke applications we developed include an itinerary planner, photo gallery, wild life sightings, news and events. Our taxonomy system makes it very easy for the Lee Valley team to share content across the sites.
We are currently working on several very large website design and build projects for NGO and public sector clients. Our User Experience (UX) team have been travelling the length and breadth of Britain undertaking stakeholder engagement workshops, focus groups and in-depth interview sessions.
These engagement exercises enable us to gather complex requirements to ensure the new websites are designed with the user experience at their heart.
During the design phase, lab based usability testing plays a very important role and allows us to hone the wireframes and creative treatment.
The unique and robust UX processes we have developed have been vital in offering publicly funded organisations real value for money – saving egg-on-face and costly re-dev’s due to websites not performing as well as they could.
We are now adapting our methods and tools, scaling them to enable us to offer this level of UX service to organisations and businesses of all sizes, so if you would like to take a user centered design approach on your next website project, please get in touch with Matt or myself.
