Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
WinSports is a new sports local tv channel that recently adquired television rights of profesional soccer in Colombia. They picked Dayscript SAS to develop the website and to provide real-time soccer data integration.
All the main CMS systems were evaluated, and we decided Drupal as the best choice because a lot of factors:
- Full integration was needed with other systems, and we need total control over that interaction.
- SEO technical aspects were crucial for quick positioning.
- We wanted a platform that can respond perfect to the growth we were expecting.
- Security and updates.
- Editorial staff already had experience with drupal and were fan of it.
The project needed to be launch in less than 3 months period, including all major functionalities if possible. The main goal was to create a user experience that didnt exists in Colombia before, specially with the real-time gamecast of every soccer match and detailed statistics.
We started by getting together a team with all the people needed, designer, developers, information arquitect, editorial chief, and comercial guys, and worked hard during the first weeks to get to a solid arquitecture and design concept. Once that was solved, the implementation process took almost two months and we managed to get online two weeks after planned but with a great number of functionality online for our users.
From day 0, every week has been a constant growth in traffic and registered users.
Every day we are aplying some upgrades to many details, creating new sections, and integrating new modules and features thanks to drupal easy of use and strong code base.
