CHICAGO, IL– November 18, 2015 – Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced the winners of the 2015 Partner Site of the Year awards. In its third year, the competition serves as a platform to showcase the best examples of digital innovation from Acquia partners.
Caxy submitted its work on The Field Museum for consideration in the entertainment category. A small committee selected 16 winning projects from 48 finalists, evaluating each site’s visual design, functionality, integration and overall customer experience to identify the winners in each category.
Caxy worked in collaboration with The Field Museum’s internal marketing and development team as well as Table XI to create the site. The process involved moving thousands of pages of content from the old site, and developing the backend using best practices for Drupal.
Our goal was to leverage as much value from the Drupal community’s work on core and contrib projects as possible to make future maintenance, security and other updates as straightforward as possible. We also needed to implement Table XI’s design faithfully and without significant compromises. This award affirms that we accomplished these goals.
What this means for Caxy
Caxy has been a proponent of open source projects since its inception and is happy to be a part of making Drupal a flexible, cost-effective, and powerful option for an organization looking to improve how they engage consumers as well as internal teams.
Our partnership with Acquia makes working with Drupal at scale much simpler as well as delivering the power and speed large sites need to be successful.
“It’s a pleasure to work on a project with such talented teams, interesting content, and technology we love,” said Michael LaVista, Caxy CEO.
“There’s a tremendous opportunity for brands to redefine digital strategy, engage visitors, and achieve maximum business impact through personalized Drupal-powered digital experiences, and we commend Caxy on the incredible work,” said Joe Wykes, vice president of global channels at Acquia. “The winners of the Partner Site of the Year competition are constantly pushing the envelope, and we believe their work is exemplary of how the stakes are being raised for digital experience delivery.”
“Selecting winners from among the finalists was extremely difficult given an amazing body of work,” said Scott Liewehr, CEO and co-founder of Digital Clarity Group, who served as a judge in the Partner Site of the Year competition for the second consecutive year. “This year’s winners exemplify what can be done with great technology, beautiful design, and a customer-first mindset.”
