TP1 Leverages Drupal Technology for "Study in Montreal: a portal for international students"

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - TP1 Communication electronique recently completed development of the website "Study in Montreal: a portal for international students". This dynamic site highlights the city's many charms and the various possibilities it presents to international students who choose Montreal as their place of study. To visit to site, click on: www.studyinmontreal.info!

The site possesses a modern look and feel, using a visual theme of a university campus, and includes original photography by Montreal photographer Benoit Aquin.

"TP1 has distinguished itself through its approach to integrating all of the project's components: visual design, photo acquisition, technology, hosting, site maintenance and support. The team understood the objective of the portal right from the beginning and demonstrated rigour and creativity throughout its development," stated Isabelle Hudon, president and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, one of the partner organizations in the project.

"A site like the Study in Montreal portal containing literally thousands of hyperlinks cried out for a tool enabling a small team of users to manage it efficiently," declared Joseph Blauer, Vice-President of Technology at TP1. Drupal, the chosen tool, is an open source web content management system published under the GNU Public License. Its content management capability along with its modular architecture, place Drupal among the most multi-faceted and flexible web content management systems currently available. For Study in Montreal, it clearly demonstrated its superiority for the creation of one of a new generation of collaborative websites. For more about Drupal, visit: www.tp1.ca/en/drupal.

TP1 will continue to work with the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal in 2007, notably to optimize external referencing.
