Congratulations To GLEAM On Their Award!

We are thrilled to share that one of our clients, the Great Lakes Environmental Assessment and Mapping (GLEAM) project, was just honored by the Great Lakes Information Network as their February 2013 "Site of the Month".

The folks over at GLEAM have worked very hard to produce a wide variety of maps that help demonstrate the huge impact we have on one of our most precious environmental resources, the water in the Great Lakes, as well as its entire ecosystem, which we all rely on and take for granted. One look at the large map on their home page and the impact that tourism and fishing on the Lakes is clear. Digging further in to the site, you can learn so much more about the things that we do, and nature does, that are shaping the future of the Lakes. As someone who lives in Michigan, I find it well worth exploring.

This team of amazing people at GLEAM has been a true joy to work with, and we couldn't wish better things to a nicer group of people.

Congratulations GLEAM!

Basics of Drupal Quickbooks Integration

Companies with an online store traditionally face a dilemma: both the retail and the accounting applications need to access the data describing products, customers and orders. Rarely are these two business processes colocated on a network map. Online retail occurs on a webserver in the cloud, while accounting occurs either on a local machine or on a server in a company's local network. Switchback took on the task of connecting the accounting (Quickbooks) and retail (D7 Commerce) pieces of online commerce.

Using your own fonts with @font-face in Drupal Gardens

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with Acquia’s impressive Drupal Gardens service. As a designer, I’ve enjoyed the amount of theming control available through the web interface. While I do have a few wishes, it’s really hard to complain; this thing provides nearly everything you need for complete custom theming, especially if you’re willing to get a little creative.
