Client SinceSeptember 2019
Volaris Group acquires, strengthens, and grows vertical market software companies, enabling them to be clear leaders within their focused industries.
Managing a lot of sites at once is tricky; keeping them consistent is trickier. Hop provides a second tier of Web support, bolstering the effectiveness of their internal team.
Volaris Group came to Hop Studios with a family of sites running in ExpressionEngine, using Multiple Site Manager. As part of a thorough optimization and cleanup process, we needed to move some of the sites to new servers and set them up with their own domains and content management systems. Volaris was also looking for a new hosting partner that could meet their security standards.
As part of this process we:
- Researched and recommended suitable hosting solutions
- Migrated sites to new hosting environments
- Upgraded ExpressionEngine 2.9 to the latest version
- Split two sites out of Multiple Site Manager and moved them to their own ExpressionEngine installs
- Assessed all add-ons for compatibility issues; updated or found replacements for those that needed it
- Did a major cleanup of the content management system to remove defunct channels, templates, categories, fields, members, server directories and files
It was super satisfying to conduct such a thorough spring cleaning and get Volaris Group ready for the next big thing!
"We contacted Hop to help migrate and update a complex multi-site setup on ExpressionEngine and we are very pleased not only with the end result but with the process as a whole. The team at Hop was knowledgeable and friendly, a real pleasure to work with.
I would also like to personally thank Gil (the lead developer on the Hop side) for the countless tips and tricks on how to better maintain our CMS moving forward as well as the knowledge transfer experience.
We will definitively reach out to Hop again should we need further technical expertise."
