Achieve Internet Portfolio

Achieve Internet is proud to have been an integral part of the development process for the new FastCompany.com business community site. We provided custom Drupal software development and project management leadership to deliver a world-class union of award winning journalism and online community. The site incorporates a professional grade content management system and editorial workflow controls, along with a full suite of cutting edge Web 2.0 applications.

The Achieve development team created customized user registration and profiling ability. More than just allowing community members to build profiles, we extended the ability of Drupal to facilitate members' ability to search for common interests, keep track of all their contributed content along with interacting with contributions of other users and editorial staff. With this expanded capability, FastCompany.com offers business professionals a unique opportunity to collaborate with other business people and professional content creators in building a next generation business community.

Another piece of custom functionality provided by Achieve was to extend the Drupal RSS capability in unique ways. Community members of FastCompany.com have the ability to send their own submitted content out onto the web as an RSS feed, they can also integrate various off-site feeds and browse stories, blogs and editorial content from the entire FastCompany.com site. This customized evolution of Drupal RSS capability is unique to the FastCompany.com experience.

The new FastCompany.com website expands the tool kit of today's business professional, by giving them a variety of powerful Web 2.0 applications. These collaborative tools allow them to leverage the best of interactive media and provide access to a larger global audience.
