In 2020, the organisations partnered to bring together their years of experience to promote the open-source (Drupal) development of websites. Together, they work with organisations across the public sector, to help them understand the changing dynamic of their end user requirements.
Both parties are leading Drupal specialists with some of the brightest minds in the community; supporting Drupal’s growth across Europe. With over 5,000 commits, the companies are responsible for in excess of 60 contributed projects on drupal.org.
Invuse and Annertech are heavily involved in the LocalGov Drupal initiative. This has been commissioned by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities to create a Drupal best-of-breed website that councils across the UK can easily adopt and use with minimal costs attached. Customers that migrate to the LocalGov Drupal distribution will benefit from over £500k of investment that has gone into the creation of the service, plus future updates are provided at no additional cost.
The initiative has already seen 22 councils migrate to the website template that has been designed, developed and tested with local authorities and their end users.
Invuse were tasked with the re-thinking, re-design, and redevelopment of the Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council (RCBC) website. To accomplish this, LocalGov Drupal (LGD) became crucial to the success of creating a better experience to help their residents find the information they need quickly and efficiently.
Invuse has worked with both local and central government over the last 8 years. The organisation specialises in designing, developing and deploying industry-leading digital services with user needs at the core whilst aligned to GDS service and design expectations.
Annertech is Ireland’s leading Drupal agency. Since 2008, Annertech has worked closely with some of the largest local councils in Ireland, designing and developing Drupal web services that focus on helping organisations meet end-user requirements and business objectives and powering services for thousands of residents.
