Development & Integration
Buzzr can be deployed in a matter of minutes, requiring only the configuration of a Cloud environment and the addition of your logo and contact information. The multi-site Enterprise Edition is then available for further customization.
Since Buzzr is built as a new and greatly streamlined user interface layer on top of open source Drupal, it can still be customized at your request with Drupal’s 10,000+ modules. Or, we can develop new modules just for your environment. In addition, we can integrate Buzzr with a variety of external services, such as intranets, CRMs, e-commerce suites. We can create specialized APIs where necessary.
We begin Enterprise Edition implementation with an assessment of your intended use cases and the creation of custom Quickstarts and styles to meet your exact needs. You can choose from the hundreds of features are available as part of the standard Buzzr platform, such as customizable content types (e.g. restaurant menus, bios, articles, music albums ), customizable web forms, and views/directories/listing pages of content types and forms (e.g. an alphabetical directory of articles or a view of products based on five star ratings.).
You can create your own Quickstarts and styles using our feature and design tools, but most clients choose to hire us to develop their first set of Quickstarts.
Quickstarts can range from multi-page sites with dozens of features already enabled and hundreds of content nodes, to simple one-page micro-sites. Many Small and Medium Sized Enterprise Quickstarts and styles are also included at no additional cost. New Quickstarts and styles are regularly being added, again, at no additional cost.
A one-click Quickstart can be created and customized by any user with the correct permissions. Site creation can be limited to the central site administrator, or made self-service, with optional integration of credit card payments.
Central site directory deployments, such as guides created by dynamic updating of content across all sites in the environment, are configured on a custom basis after we develop a specification of your needs.
Technical support is available in English or Spanish.
Manage and Monitor
Features for creating sites and new users, and monitoring them, are part of a central administrative interface. You can assign users to any of five different roles, each of which you can customize with their own set of permissions for accessing features. Permissions for end users range from limiting access to just posting images, to the same access to site features that you enjoy.
After a site is configured, typically a separate end user is assigned permission (or receives permission as part of a credit card check-out) to administer their site.
Any individual site created with Buzzr can be exported by the central administrator with one click to your own server and reconstructed in native Drupal, generally in a matter of minutes. The Buzzr codebase is contractually guaranteed to be available in the future and technology escrow services are available to secure your customized environment.
Buzzr takes care of all hosting, security, performance optimization, Drupal patches, leaving you free to pursue your ideas while we handle the back-end technology. With the help of hosting partners like Rackspace, we monitor your environment in the cloud 24x7. We always provide high-touch point support to help you achieve your end goals, including on-site training worldwide.
Our technical team has experience scaling environment to thousands of sites and millions of pages views.
We are also available to provide custom design services to you or your end user clients (as a private label service, using your brand.) We also offer private label, value-add end user support, including SEO, Social Media Optimization and monthly keyword and analytics reports.
