Stauffer Consulting Services Announces Partnership with Acquia Set to Improve ROI When Implementing Feature Rich Social Publishing Systems

Stauffer Consulting Services, a software consulting firm specializing in custom software development and open source package implementations, has entered into a partnership with Acquia to improve web and mobile application projects already underway using the open source Drupal social publishing system.

Andover, Mass.-based Acquia provides technical support and network services for Drupal, whose popularity has increased exponentially in recent months. Companies using Drupal to power its websites include the Walt Disney Company, SonyBMG and Virgin Radio. The federal government is relying on Drupal to power, the Obama administration's web-based clearinghouse for the economic recovery efforts.

"Stauffer Consulting Services is proud to be partnering with Acquia," said CEO Christopher Stauffer. "Drupal is by far the most powerful content management system available. Partnering with Acquia is a logical next step for Stauffer Consulting. This will allow us to create more feature-rich web 2.0 applications for our clients at reasonable prices."

The partnership between Stauffer and Acquia occurred in large part because Drupal is already an integral part of Stauffer's software consulting practice. Among the services Stauffer is marketing to clients are customized iPhone applications built using Drupal as the backbone. As an Acquia partner Stauffer Consulting Services will be able to ensure our joint customers have access to the expertise and technical support they need to be successful with Drupal.

"Stauffer Consulting Services has a strong reputation for its leading edge technology solutions and shares Acquia's deep commitment to accelerating Drupal adoption and growth," said Jay Batson, Acquia co-founder and CEO. "We're excited to have Stauffer Consulting Services join us as a partner."
