An outdated website meant that the UK’s national cycling charity, Cycling UK, was pedalling backwards in the online world. Getting their Drupal CMS to work in tandem with IRIS CARE, Britain’s leading charity database and CRM system, was an ambitious journey but one that had to be taken in order to grow their 70,000 database.

  • Industry: Health and Fitness, charity
  • Platform: Drupal
  • Head Office: Glasgow

The challenge

The content management system framework was already in place but, without an integrated CRM system, critical functionality was missing from the site.

As Cycling UK’s AGM was fast approaching, it was imperative that a pre-launch version of the site, featuring a working sign-up process, was in operation.


Cycling UK’s project manager asked Cohesion Digital to assess the terrain, confident that we would be able to resolve the issues based on his previous experience of working with the company.

The existing website presented considerable integration challenges and our Drupal specialist headed up the task.

After an in-depth analysis, a detailed strategic plan, fixed price and clear timescale for the project were established.

Our expert Drupal developer then worked in close consultation with We Are Cycling to resolve the core problems and integrate IRIS CARE successfully with Drupal.

In addition, we collaborated with Cycling UK’s IT officer to optimise online performance, even at high volumes of traffic.

This was a job for specialists. There are not many companies with the knowledge and experience to integrate third-party systems effectively with a Drupal site, but Cohesion Digital is one of them.”
