Drupal’s popularity compels us to elect it as the administration system for many projects. It’s been community driven for the last 12 years to become one of the most powerful in the market. The team at BLISS have used it to develop numerous feature-rich websites and have developed modules and techniques that streamline the development, management and use of the system.

Portability

It is important to us that our clients are not tied to us because of our use of technology. We therefore insist on using software, platforms and development techniques that ensure our applications and websites are as portable as they can be.

In addition, we sign appropriate intellectual property rights over to you, ensuring that you have full rights to use the software you have paid us to create.

The result is that you don’t need to work with us if you don’t want to. We are confident that you will continue to partner with us because we contribute to your business, not because technology makes leaving unaffordable.

A modular approach

Our development approach is modular, meaning that functionality we create for one site can easily be plugged into another. This keeps your website easy to upgrade, cheap to maintain, portable and great value for money.

Performance

CMS systems require a lot of processing power to allow the website to remain dynamic - with Drupal this is no different. We configure our applications to run just as quickly as a static website by implementing a static paging cache. When a page is generated for display we create a physical copy of the file on disk. Then when the web server software requests the page again it simply retrieves the static copy we made.

We can even configure specific pages to return with a cached copy or a live copy. This means you can have something such as a contact form which rarely changes load exceptionally fast whilst allowing other pages to remain more dynamic.
