A recognized and certified partner of the Drupal/Acquia community
Velir’s content management experience dates back to our founding in 2000. Since then, we’ve become one of the largest implementers and system integrators of content management solutions (CMS) in North America. We’ve implemented scores of these solutions for our clients and completed hundreds of related projects.
Velir has deep ties with Acquia, a software company that supports and builds products for the Drupal platform. Of the over 38,000 strong Drupal developer community, Velir's team includes two of only around 100 developers around the world who have achieved Grand Master Certification status. Additionally, our vast experience and knowledge of the platform have enabled us to be recognized as an official partner within Acquia’s network. This network includes the most talented contributors to the Drupal community who have completed high-profile Drupal projects worldwide.

Drupal Content Migrations
Content migrations are part of most every large web redesign or platform migration effort. During these projects, organizations typically deal with content living in legacy CMSs or scattered across multiple platforms. Velir has handled numerous content migration efforts involving hundreds of thousands of content items and we have the skills and staff to safely migrate all of your web essentials over to Drupal.
Drupal Module or System Integrations
Drupal’s ecosystem is comprised of 30,000 contributed modules and continues to grow every day. These modules further extend the capabilities of Drupal, putting powerful tools at your fingertips for content publishing, user account management, subscription sales, ecommerce applications, data mining, and more. Velir uses Drupal as the connecting hub to combine various modules and other third-party applications, to provide a well-integrated solution that meets all of your business requirements.
There are more than 1,300 Drupal themes out there and we specialize in two of the best: Neato and Zurb Foundation. These themes grant our design team carte blanche when drawing up sketches, wireframes, and prototypes, and also ensure their reflection in Drupal is device responsive and accessible. Drupal’s flexible framework allows us to build your theme from the ground up, rather than the top down, giving you a solution completely tailored to your specific needs.
Drupal Training Services
Even the most user-friendly and intuitive CMS will have custom features and conventions that administrators, editors and other users must know. Velir’s Drupal certified team will host ongoing training sessions throughout projects to ensure that your staff is well-versed with your new Drupal solution and ready to hit the ground running. We can also provide training to acclimate in-house developer(s) to working with or building on Drupal.
Contributed Drupal Projects
As an open-source software platform, Drupal attracts a large community of developers committed to modifying, patching and enhancing its codebase. With an active and vigilant security team that constantly tests the core and contributed modules to probe for security vulnerabilities, the result is a stable, secure and innovative application. Velir’s Drupal developers have extensive experience building Drupal solutions and are active members of the community. They have made significant contributions to a number of Drupal projects, including:
