Many web initiative include some portion of custom application development. Although the Aquifer content management system is more than robust enough to handle the majority of web related requirments, many companies desire a custom piece. As an example, The Houston Zoo chose Aquifer to manage their public web site. The web site included FAQ's, calanders, news articles and much more. What was missing was a searchable animal database. The Houston Zoo knew that in order to become the premier resource for zoological information they needed some means to place animal specific information on their site. They asked their Aquifer CMS technical team to build a custom application that would integrate with the Aquifer generated web site and utilized the Administration console as the backend. The Aquifer CMS technical team built a robust application that is used in several areas of The Houston Zoo web site.

Each project file includes in-line documentation so that our end users can decipher the logic of our code.
