Bar Association of Leuven
The Bar Association of Leuven: in Belgium, membership of a local Bar Association is compulsory for advocates.

IPO: a privately owned holding company with more than 6000 shareholders was preparing its IPO (Initial Public Offering).

The Exopolitics Journal: The Exopolitics Journal is an online journal, dedicated to exopolitics. It offers high-quality articles that are of interest to those attracted to accurate research on Exopolitics.
The web site uses a search engine, written in PHP that interacts with a MySQL database via AJAX calls. AJAX calls make it possible to update the content of a page without having to reload the page. This makes searching for information, e.g., a faster and easier experience. Obviously the web site also uses a secure content management system to add, retrieve, modify, or delete information to and from the database. This custom made content management system allows to manage authors, articles, content categories, etc. More.
Intranets / Extranets
Extranets: Many of our success stories involve the creation of a custom extranet for our customers.
Extranets allow people to store and retrieve information in a secure and private environment, which can be accessed by members only.
They work with different levels of permissions which allow users to view, edit, add, delete, upload or download information, depending on their access rights.
All the user needs is access to the Internet, a user-id and password. More...
CMS Implementations: JAR Magazine
JAR Magazine is just one prime example of a highly successful Joomla project.
JAR Magazine is completely operated by volunteers. It used to be a published as a quarterly PDF newsletter, which was not cheap. Looking at alternatives to reduce the cost, Joomla was the obvious choice since it was initially designed specifically for online magazines. So it is perfectly suited for the task at hand.
By switching to a Joomla web site, the operational cost was reduced by 99% (!), while the audience quadrupled in size.
