V4 Development played a pivotal role in revolutionizing the online presence of Touchstone Energy Cooperatives through the creation of the Co-op Web Builder, a sophisticated web platform designed specifically for electric cooperatives. Leveraging the robust capabilities of Drupal, V4 Development tailored a solution that not only addressed the unique needs of Touchstone Energy members but also ensured ease of use, security, and responsiveness in website design and maintenance.

The Co-op Web Builder serves as a comprehensive content management system (CMS) exclusively crafted for electric cooperatives, making it a valuable and exclusive benefit for all Touchstone Energy members. By focusing on the specific requirements of these cooperatives, V4 Development enabled them to effortlessly design, maintain, and secure their websites, thereby enhancing their online presence and communication channels.

One of the key features of the Co-op Web Builder is its full responsiveness and customizability. This means that electric cooperatives across the United States can create websites that adapt seamlessly to various devices, ensuring an optimal user experience for their members. The platform's customization capabilities empower cooperatives to tailor their websites according to their unique branding, services, and community engagement initiatives.

Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, with over 750 local, member-owned electric co-ops spread across 46 states, required a solution that could efficiently manage the diverse needs of each cooperative while maintaining a cohesive digital presence. V4 Development responded by creating a hub-spoke multi-site software as a service (SaaS) architecture. This innovative approach utilizes a shared code base, allowing for concurrent management of all cooperative websites under the Touchstone Energy umbrella. This centralized management not only streamlines updates and maintenance but also ensures consistency in design, functionality, and security across the entire network.

In summary, V4 Development's collaboration with Touchstone Energy Cooperatives resulted in the creation of the Co-op Web Builder, a state-of-the-art platform that empowers electric cooperatives to thrive in the digital landscape. By leveraging Drupal and implementing a hub-spoke multi-site SaaS approach, V4 Development delivered a solution that enhances the online capabilities of each cooperative, reinforcing Touchstone Energy's commitment to providing safe, reliable, and affordable electricity to its members nationwide.
