NBC Universal is a leader in the entertainment world with hundreds of online properties that require constant attention. Maintaining these proprietary properties in CMS software is a costly endeavor and NBCU decided to make the switch to Drupal. NBCU’s Telemundu division reached out to Achieve for help migrating their HolaMun2.com property over to a Drupal management system. HolaMun2.com is an English language site focused on Latino Pop Culture and directed towards the 13 to 18 year old demographic. Telemundo and NBCU wanted this site to have community engagement capabilities, advanced user permission settings, and sophisticated photo gallery functionality.
In order for Achieve to accomplish the photo gallery functionality the development team first had to tackle a number of other core Drupal modules that are complementary to the Photo Gallery module. Achieve incorporated the necessary modules in order to allow Photo Gallery to operate at peak performance, a few of those modules were: Registration, Commenting and Permissions. User Experience for any site is of paramount focus for Achieve and this site was no different, especially given the highly elegant end result that Telemundu and NBCU desired. Achieve was also tasked to incorporate a search function into HulaMon2.com. The out-of-the-box functionality of Drupal search is sufficient for a small website, but in order to handle the volume of HulaMon2.com, an Enterprise Level Site, Achieve had to install and host a Solr Lucene search solution.
By leveraging our expertise in core and contributed Drupal modules Achieve created a truly engaging site that increased performance and overall user experience.
Delivered a fully functionality website with search capabilities, social networking tools, and an engaging photo gallery tool that allows commenting and sharing for authorized users.
