The Challenge

The team at Meredith Corporation needed to modernize and consolidate the many systems running Parents.com, the online home of Parents Magazine. They chose Drupal, but needed additional expertise to integrate with and guide their team.

The Solution

Chromatic partnered with the Parents.com team to provide both front and back-end development, as well as strategic consulting. We helped build the site and migrate the content from legacy systems over the course of seven months.

The Results

The launch of the new Parents.com was one of the smoothest that Meredith Corporation has experienced to date. It was also the first time they launched a site that was significantly faster than the one it replaced. The codebase was also much more maintainable.

Intelligently advocated for best practices that resulted in significant performance improvements as well as better long-term code maintainability.
