DOOR3 Delivers Full-Service Drupal Site for Surex Direct

Calgary, AB (RPRN) 06/05/12 —  Alberta Auto and Home Insurance Broker Surex Direct has partnered with web development company DOOR3 to create Alberta’s first and only solution for complete online auto insurance policies.  The site employs the fast-growing, open-source content management system, Drupal, as its back-end system.

Surex Direct conceived the idea to create an online service where customers can instantly comparison shop quotes on auto or home insurance, purchase policies and print proof of insurance all at one site.  The broker enlisted DOOR3 to assist the company with turning the idea into a reality.  DOOR3 designs and builds enterprise business applications for web, social and mobile media including solutions built with Drupal.

An innovative leader in content management, Drupal powers some of the busiest sites on the web, and can be adapted to virtually any visual design.  Some of the most visible and highest-trafficked sites in the world run on Drupal, including examiner.com, whitehouse.gov, and most of the top 100 universities.  The content management system has a reputation for being very secure and has a vast development and administrator community.  Because Drupal is open-source software, Surex Direct is able to avoid licensing fees and instead use those resources to build a more user-friendly website for its customers.

“We needed the technological capabilities to not only power a search engine for comparison shopping, but to also allow our customers to manage their accounts 24/7,” said Matt Alston, Surex Direct Managing Partner.  “DOOR3 has effectively applied Drupal’s abilities to accomplish our objective of providing our customers with a one-stop shop for locating, purchasing and managing their insurance policies.”

DOOR3 Senior Drupal Developer Wesley Nichols led the development of the enhanced Surex Direct website.  “My colleagues and I at DOOR3 were happy to be involved with the creation of this unique concept,” said Nichols.  "SurexDirect.com has made shopping and managing auto insurance policies for Albertans a painless and empowering process.”

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
