The Centre for Veterinary Education (CVE) is the world’s first and leading organisation to provide continuing education and professional development for veterinarians and allied professionals.
Veterinarians worldwide use the platform to manage their membership subscription, buy books and digital downloads, register for conferences and workshops, enrol in distance education courses and watch resources in the new video library.
The CVE back-office runs entirely on iMIS (software designed to help associations manage relationships amongst its members and facilitate the administrative tasks) and we needed to implement a complete integration between Drupal 7/Commerce and iMIS.
The biggest part of this project was to rewrite the existing Drupal 6 code to suit the new Drupal 7 requirements.
Back on the Drupal 6 platform, staff had to juggle with HTML (tables) to create layouts for their events and products. They were given a simple body field and a WYSIWYG editor, which required time and much frustration to use. Leveraging the fields types available out of the box in Drupal 7, we built all the content types so that CVE staff only have to insert copy and images, without worrying about layout or HTML.
