Site Studio

“Site Studio provides a visual page builder. Anyone within your organization can create a page or make changes to an existing page.” – Acquia Site Studio

With Acquia Site Studio, clients are able to build content, landing pages, and unique layouts all without needing to write a single line of code. LookThink will help establish a design system that meets content and brand goals, and Site Studio effortlessly supports this system in a way that is flexible, scalable, and reusable. This allows clients to spend their time focusing on owning, managing, and building their site instead of fighting with code. With a WYSIWYG editor and drag-and-drop layouts, clients are able to quickly produce and test content, helping their sites remain relevant and fresh.

Design

  • LookThink helps their clients create a design system that starts with elements and builds its way up to page templates. Site Studio provides maximum design flexibility by applying the design system through a robust no-code component system and drag-and-drop interface.
  • With the use of components and templates, a consistent style is already applied site-wide. If a design change is required, no problem, it can be updated everywhere it exists with a click of a button.
  • With a design system in place, clients can focus on what they want their site to say and do. Site Studio reduces time spent creating new pages, as flexible layouts already exist for all potential content types.

Development

  • All your security needs, in one place. Automatically keeps your Drupal system up to date, performs security audits, and scans file uploads. Allows clients to create an administration user-role hierarchy, giving control to those who really need it.
  • Workflows and approval processes for content management are also easy to administer, monitor, and maintain. Clients can easily define administration roles and access within the system.
  • Host, develop, and monitor your site all in one place. Check for performance, make updates, and maintain existing data without needing to leave the Drupal platform.
