Project overview

SFWMD needed a platform that was modern and user-friendly. Because they have a lot of content to share with site visitors, they needed a content management system that could comfortably handle large amounts of information. Their previous site had hard-coded pages, which were cumbersome to update, so they also needed a site that could be updated without having to touch code when information changed.

SFWMD also wanted to minimize the usage of custom modules and code, so a decision was made to utilize existing Drupal 8 modules and code whenever possible, instead of developing or depending upon custom modules. In order to help SFWMD schedule budgeting and management needs for the project, Promet Source took a phased approach to the project, and set phases and milestones so that both parties could keep track of the project progression.
