The Red Hat Society, an international society dedicated to reshaping the way women are viewed in today’s culture, engaged Imagistic to deploy a new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system for managing subscribers, members, and events. The new CRM, a customized version of CiviCRM, was selected through a guided prioritization exercise by the Red Hat Society stakeholders.

Imagistic's CRM upgrade provided the Red Hat Society the ability to leverage the power of a two major open-source applications, CiviCRM and Drupal, as well as extending both applications with custom code to more effectively match the needs of the organization.

Imagistic first migrated the existing website from a custom-built Lasso-based CMS to the Drupal CMS. "Drupal and CiviCRM are a solid pair of frameworks to build an enterprise-wide system to run a business on," explained Kevin Howard Goldberg, President of Imagistic. "Being able to leverage both CiviCRM's and Drupal's custom module structure was a critical piece in delivering a system that met, and in some cases, exceeded the requirements of the business."
