The project for this client was over 600 hours.  Because of the exceptional collaborative abilities and technical expertise of Commercial Progression, our project manager was able to bring this project to successful completion within 2% of the original estimate all the while delivering extraordinary client service and world-class web development.

Overview

Bay Mills Community College is Michigan’s first fully accredited, tribally controlled college. BMCC meets the educational needs of a wide variety of students via multiple campuses and online courseware. BMCC secured the services of C/D/H, a Michigan based technology consulting firm, to launch a series of new websites. C/D/H selected Commercial Progression to develop, launch, and support multiple Drupal websites.

Drupal’s high adoption rate for higher education lead C/D/H and BMCC to select Drupal over WordPress as the best option for growing the college website presence.  C/D/H lead with a user-first design approach to support the college’s many online initiatives and student offerings.

Challenge

C/D/H created new designs for the BMCC websites and needed these to be translated into consistent Drupal themes. With 4 websites scheduled for the first launch, a development approach that could maintain consistent and efficient features was a must. Tight deadlines for designers and content managers required quick training to get up to speed on Drupal best practices.

Solution

Having offices in Grand Rapids and the Metro Detroit area, Commercial Progression was available for in person collaboration and training at both of C/D/H’s offices. Being available for training and in person design reviews ensured the project kept to a tight deadline with few revisions. After generating new user stories and website architecture, Commercial Progression translated the provided designs into ready to deploy Drupal themes. The development team leveraged common Drupal features between projects to save time and allow for the efficient launch of multiple websites in succession.

Results

Commercial Progression launched 4 websites on time and under budget for Bay Mills Community College in early 2016. Partnering C/D/H with The Drupal Experts ensured a continuous design process and a satisfied client.
