Singer, Songwriter, Actor, and New Judge on American Idol
Charles River Web was approached to develop Harry's new site just a handful of weeks before his debut as a judge on the American Idol season 13 premiere, which marked our strict deadline. It was a tall order on short notice, but we stood up to the challenge and delivered strong results.
Charles River Web acted as the general contractor for this project, and in so doing brought in Metropolis Creative as our partnering design firm. We worked with Metropolis to produce a stunning design, and then got our hands dirty building the site from the ground up in a mere two and a half weeks. It was a true test of our efficiency as developers, and we passed. We even finished in time to accommodate final change requests by the client. The site we delivered was beautiful and fully functional, meeting all requirements, and delivered in time for Harry's big Idol debut.

Joe Kriesberg, President of MACDC, writes, “Working with Charles River Web was wonderful. MACDC set out to build a new site on the Drupal platform and Charles River Web was quite responsive to our needs while developing a site that was elegant and easy to use. Charles River Web’s team is comprised of serious computer programmers who had no problem addressing any of the challenges we presented to them. We not only recommend them for your web development needs, but also look forward to working with them again on our next project.”
Website plus Custom Applications
TimeTrade is the world leader in online appointment scheduling systems used by businesses to create new customers, accelerate the sales and service process, and make it easy to respond to customers quickly. Charles River Web revamped their website for better visual appeal and developed applications to assist their customers with service integration. These applications, or "button builders", allow clients to add personally styled and configured TimeTrade widgets to their sites. CRW created and customized three "button builders" -- one for Drupal, one for Hubspot, and a generic one for adding buttons to sites regardless of platform. The revamped site and the custom "button builder" applications help TimeTrade to better communicate with and provide services to its customers and clients.
