Soliant’s integrity impressed me: rather than write a website and database from scratch (which would have been a larger, costlier project for us), they implemented a free open-source system that not only met our needs but set us up with a wide range of future options.
The non-profit needed not only a website in support of their directive, but also an authoring tool. Soliant’s team turned to Drupal, an open-source content management system, which would serve both as a platform and as a publishing engine for the organization. Once deployed, volunteers and staff members could then write articles, select templates, and post new content to their site directly from a web browser.
The result dramatically extended Colorado Preservation, Inc.’s ability to deliver information to members, reach communities across the state of Colorado, and drive traffic to their site.
Founded in 1984, Colorado Preservation, Inc. is a statewide organization dedicated to promoting and advancing historic preservation in the State of Colorado. CPI’s Saving Places Conference, with more than 1,200 participants annually, has grown to be the largest statewide gathering of preservationists in the nation. Our quarterly newsletter, Colorado Preservationist, has blossomed into a magazine. Colorado Preservation, Inc. has also embarked on efforts to rehabilitate several historic properties across the state.
