Invention & Technology Magazine had a technology problem. Even though it's the only popular magazine in the US about the history of innovation and engineering, its website was out-of-date and not mobile-friendly.
The magazine turned to Valuebound, an Open Source Technology company with deep expertise in both Drupal 8 and the publishing Industry, to upgrade its online presence.
"This is the second major job we have done with Valuebound," notes Edwin Grosvenor, President of American Heritage Publishing, the 70-year-old company that owns Invention & Technology. "We had worked with them on our other website for American Heritage Magazine, and knew they could handle a large, complex site that needed to be easy to navigate and also attractive."
"Invention & Technology's website was built on failing Drupal 6 code that was no longer supported and needed to be replaced urgently," notes Sujit Kumar, Marketing Head for Valuebound. "In only four weeks, our team was able to migrate the site so it has a modern design, can handle more traffic, and provide fast and responsive user experience."
"Valuebound worked well with us with through the entire development cycle, from initial architecting to rapid build of the code and then cleanup of last issues," says Mr. Grosvenor. "They are truly great to work with."
"We appreciate that American Heritage has shown faith in Drupal 8 and in our firm since the relaunch of American Heritage website," said Neeraj Kumar, CEO of Valuebound. "We look forward to adding more features and performance upgrades powered by Drupal 8."
