Blisstering m2Serve powers First-ever Drupal CrowdSourcing site, START.acAnnouncing the launch of www.start.ac, powered by Blisstering’s m2Serve
Oakland, CA., July 17, 2012— Blisstering Solutions, a full-range Drupal Services provider, announces its latest m2Serve-powered project: developing and deploying START.ac’s online CrowdFunding platform.
Start.ac is built with Blisstering’s m2serve Drupal distribution, and offers an integrated web and mobile platform to rapidly deliver high performance, data-driven applications. By utilizing m2Serve, developers can extend core data and business processes quicker, for multiple modes of deployment like web, mobile, tablet and Facebook with a consistent user experience.
START.ac is the first Drupal-based CrowdFunding community online. With third-party services integration, START.ac leads the CrowdFunding pack with “crowd-centric” programs like; CrowdAudition™, Mentoring, a Pay-It-Forward Fund, CrowdAltruism™, and much more.
“I sought out Blisstering for their Drupal expertise and breadth of web, mobile and tablet development projects.” said Rod Turner, START.ac’s CEO and Founder. “I was not only looking for a technology team, but for a long-term partnership that understood the needs of a startup – combining product development and real-time solutions for optimal future growth.”
Rod Turner needed support from a world-class platform-as-a-service organization for Drupal and m2Serve. Acquia was the obvious choice because they help enterprises dramatically reduce operational hurdles and costs by offering them unparalleled freedom to create Drupal-driven websites and mobile apps without boundaries. Thus Acquia Cloud and SaaS tools underpin m2Serve, which in turn drives Start.ac – together providing the basis for a scalable and flexible CrowdFunding platform, thus highlighting the power of Drupal and open source.
“START.ac is an ideal client to utilize our m2Serve technology for rapid development of its CrowdFunding website and future mobile apps. With over 100,000 hours of Drupal development under our belts, we have the technology and the team to bring START.ac to the cloud” said Sunit Gala, CEO of Blisstering Solutions.About Blisstering Solutions
