Case Study

Drive The Foundation

Dynamic Site Grows With Business

Drive The Foundation is a Texas-based drivers education and defensive driving referral program. The company offers drivers education and defensive driving classes for local school districts. By negotiating discounted rates with their vendors, they are able to donate a portion of each enrollment to their local school district.

We’ve helped Drive The Foundation grow from serving just 6 school districts at initial launch, to over 40 school districts today. We developed a custom application, built on the Joomla! platform, to track enrollment requests for each of their partner districts and for over 800 individual schools. Their districts can opt in to any or all of the three programs offered (drivers education, adult drivers education, and defensive driving).

This site was overhauled and re-launched in August of 2014 to include responsive templates, and a new management application which we developed in CodeIgniter. Using this new system, our client now manages their school districts, schools, pricing levels, and all vendor links directly, through their own custom backend. When a new school district is added to the system, a new subdomain is generated, allowing them to put a custom web site online for their partner districts within minutes. The system enables them to customize pricing levels, add and manage individual schools for each of their districts, and customize vendor links for each district and school.
