Columbia, MD May 30, 2013 – Unleashed, LLC, experts in web and hosting solutions, today announced that they were awarded three Drupal Blue Drop Awards, including Website of the Year for Woodhouse Day Spas. In addition to Site of the Year, Unleashed was awarded Best Non-Profit Website for United States Naval Institute and Best Media Website for developing ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR Magazine’s website.
2013 Drupal Website of the Year – The Woodhouse Day Spa
Unleashed developed an enterprise platform that easily scales to accommodate The Woodhouse Day Spa’s explosive growth, as they take the company from 30 to more than 200 franchises. The Woodhouse Day Spa can now instantly create franchise sites that are consistent in branding and content, yet managed and updated by the franchisee. Building on the high impact design provided by Bates Creative Group, all sites are fully integrated into spa management systems to provide a seamless experience to visitors.
Nonprofit Website of the Year – United States Naval Institute
The United States Naval Institute (USNI) website, built on Drupal, has served to further its mission and bring it to a position of technological leadership among military nonprofits. With a responsive design, business process automation, and high-performance availability, USNI.org delivers tremendous value to the organization and its members.
Best Media Website of the Year – ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS Magazine
The ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR magazine website formerly required a large amount of work for low-value tasks, but with the automation of key processes through this web platform its staff can now perform less work to drive much higher value. "As we develop the capabilities that the flexible Drupal platform gives us, we're finding that we're able to do so many things that we couldn't before. We can't wait to figure out all that we can do," said publisher, John Maisel.
“This is a great accomplishment and we are very honored to have received three Blue Drop Awards, including Site of the Year for the second year in a row,” said Michael Spinosa, CEO of Unleashed. “We are very pleased to share these awards with our clients and partners.”
Representing more than 630,000 contributors and developers, Drupal is the largest, most active open-source technology community in the world. The Blue Drop Awards (www.bluedropawards.org) were created to promote Drupal to the greater technology community and to recognize innovative, next-generation websites and the companies that built them. With thousands of sites leveraging Drupal, the Blue Drop Awards program is designed to be the first democratic, voter-driven recognition program for Drupal members.
