In order to more easily communicate the details of our projects we moved our site to a robust content management system. Joomla was an ideal choice considering the amount of content we plan to have and the computing resources needed to provide this content.
Grafware completes migration of zForum based message board to Ploneboard. This is the second major Ploneboard migration executed by Grafware. zForum uses MySQL for its backend.

Grafware commisioned to develop Plone product to track team performance of teams in a soccer league.
Several enhancements were completed relating to both performance and functionality.
The requirements for our website was complex. We needed a website that could grow potentially to 16 million objects with full text search and RSS capabilities. Earlier attempts based on other CMSs including WordPress had failed. Grafware implemented the system using Plone with a unique architecture and also provided custom scripts to facilitate content creation, helped us take the website live and maintain the site particularly during periods of high traffic.

We were delighted to find the PloneboardSubscription add-on created by Grafware! It is thoughtfully designed and provides users with a great deal of flexibility in self-managing their email subscriptions to whole discussion forums, or just individual threads. We commissioned Grafware to enhance the product to provide some specific additional functionality that we required, and they completed the work promptly and to a very high standard at very reasonable rates. We look forward to working more with Grafware on other Plone add-ons.

Grafware was there when we needed. They gave a hand to our team to meet tight deadlines. Their developers offered good availability, excellent follow and met expected results.
Grafware successfully upgraded our Plone website almost two years ago, and has maintained it to peak performance since. They have also implemented our functional specifications into applications that our site visitors find fast and easy to use.

Grafware was a pleasure to work with. They provided the quote right away, were available immediately and the work was done quickly and accurately. They even handled the few tweaks that we needed upon installation of the software. Grafware will definitely be our first choice for further Zope/Plone development.
