Government of Bermuda Launches New Drupal Web Portal

Ottawa – March 31, 2016 – OPIN, a large-scale Drupal services company, landed the contract in late 2015, and has since been working with the Government of Bermuda team. They will be working with their government agencies over the next few years to consolidate all their content into a single Drupal website.

“Following a rigorous request for proposal process, the Government of Bermuda selected OPIN to be the developer of our new portal. OPIN provided an excellent service and the Bermuda team is extremely proud of the end product. We have a world class website, www.gov.bm, which came in on time and on budget,” said Aderonke Wilson Director, Department of Communication and Information at Government of Bermuda.

Some of the features of the portal include a robust search engine, seamless mobile compatibility and a feedback button on each page, all which help make the website more intuitive for the modern user.

Increasingly, governments are adopting open source technologies, like Drupal, for its flexibility and security as a platform, while providing significant cost savings. In the U.S. alone, more than 100 government sites, including the White House, run the open source platform.

OPIN recently won Acquia’s 2016 Partner of the Year award in the Public Sector category for past government related projects and has worked closely with Acquia on this project for Bermuda.

“Acquia is proud to welcome the Government of Bermuda to its expanding roster of government clients who have elected to standardize their digital strategy on Drupal,” explains Mathieu Weber, Director at Acquia Canada.

“Bermuda’s rigorous procurement process led them to conclude that no other digital platform is as agile, cost-effective or open as Drupal in delivering digital experiences worthy of the 21st century. There are many lessons learned here that could benefit Canadian Federal, Provincial and Municipal agencies seeking to lower costs and improve citizen services.”

OPIN has worked with many governments nationally and internationally over the years, assisting them in the modernization of their websites using Drupal.
