In 2009, Appnovation was asked to design and develop a Drupal based community and e-commerce website called 'Cargoh'. The driving idea behind the site was to create a “social marketplace” for independent artists, from all over the world, to be able to showcase and sell their products and services.
It features community tools such as forums, an internal messaging system, and events section. The client decided to go with Drupal, due to the modular development, which makes it so popular for community sites, as well as its flexibility and scalability, which will make the site easier to modify or expand as its user base grows.
It was also chosen because it is an Open Source inexpensive choice (no application license costs), especially in consideration of the endless wealth of support and module options available through the Drupal community.
