Acquia

Reading Room work with Acquia to provide enterprise solutions to complement their Drupal projects and platforms.

From segmentation and personalisation through Acquia Lift, or Enterprise level fast-scaling hosting for multi-site platforms using Sitefactory, we extend our Drupal platforms to realise the vision of personalised, contextual and real-time customer engagement for the right person, at the right time.

Why we chose Acquia

Reading Room have been working Drupal Open Source framework and technology for over 15 years and in recent years we have created increasingly large and complex Enterprise Drupal builds with high performance and complex features set requirements. For Open Source projects such as this we supplement our Drupal projects with a range of Drupal based products from Acquia which, when combined with the powerful Drupal framework, can compete with any Enterprise Content Management System;

Acquia Lift adds the latest personalisation technology to our Drupal builds, allowing our clients’ teams to personalise user customer journeys across every channel in their platform, unifying data from multiple sources.

Acquia Cloud and Sitefactory, meanwhile, offers our Drupal clients' larger scale regular campaigns a unique platform experience where they can build digital experiences faster and create and deploy multiple sites in record time. In addition it offers huge efficiency in managing the governance and security of multi-site platforms with simultaneous code management.
