From first ideas to a completed website is a long journey. We're by your side - from the first conceptual steps through the implementation phase up to the launch and the subsequent maintenance and management of your project.

What software is most appropriate for your project? During the evaluation phase, before the project has started, erdfisch is right by your side with clear advice. We test out your requirements, and evaluate them with a view to achieving the ideal technical solution.
That's where Drupal comes in. It's our tool of choice, and it offers a suitable response to the most varied customer requirements. Out of our many years of experience with complex Drupal-based web projects, we are well aware of Drupal's many strengths, and also where it's not so strong. In our work with Drupal, we can draw on countless use-cases and practical examples to get the job done properly.
Working with us, you profit from this wealth of knowledge. From the very start we work with you to shape the project in the most efficient and value-for-money way possible. And, of course, you can pull us in to help with Drupal projects that have already been deployed, whether it's for technical analysis, or to put in practice your further development plans. In everything, we will work closely with you to put into practice the best possible solution.
There are very few online projects can continue after their launch without ongoing maintenance. More commonly, projects need to be continuously developed after go-live – making available new functionality to provide extra added value. In addition, projects require routine maintenance, for example, when system updates need to be applied – or when a site attracts more customers and has more content, it may need to be optimised for performance. erdfisch will continue to take care of your project after the launch, and will make sure that it is in optimal shape throughout its life-cycle. We're always ready to answer your support requests and to continuously develop the project in line with customer needs.
Given sufficient time for project hand-over, we offer these services not just for Drupal projects we develop ourselves, but also for websites which have been created and implemented by other agencies.
A complex software project will never be successful without careful and extensive strategic planning. Make use of our know-how and experience – bring erdfisch in as part of the initial conception phase of your project.
Your ideas and wishes need to clearly defined, so that they can become digital reality. We at erdfisch take on the task of strategic, conceptual planning and work closely with you to uncover your specific use cases and requirements. These requirements will then serve as the blueprint for the subsequent technical implementation.
Throughout this process, we never lose sight of efficiency and value-for-money. We keep an eye out for possible improvements and alternative approaches which provide more efficient and elegant ways of meeting our customers' wishes.
During the conceptual planning stage of a complex online infrastructure project, we make sure to always stay aware of the "big picture". By this we mean that we make sure that the "environment variables" are right - for example, when planning a server setup with maximal responsiveness and minimal down-time. Or by making it possible for your online project to communicate and securely share data through integration with your company's other websites and internal business tools.
An idea can only be successful, when it is realistic and the technical parameters have been defined. Once the planning and concept phases are complete, then it's time for the developers to get to work.
As a recognised specialist in Drupal development, erdfisch has a number of outstanding experts with years of experience in the implementation of complex software projects using Drupal. Our developers are regularly and intensively engaged with the Drupal developer community. Because of their work on Drupal core and contrib modules, we have unique capabilities which have allowed us to take on ambitious Drupal projects - finding clean, robust solutions to difficult problems.
As our developers are actively involved with the ongoing development of Drupal core as well as significant contrib modules, this flows into our project work – so that naturally we use the exact same development guidelines and rules – for example, our coding standards are the same as those used in the Drupal project itself.
erdisch started as a web agency in 2005, when the three founders Stefan Auditor, Frank Holldorff and Fabian Lorenzen decided to join forces. From the start, erdfisch used Drupal to implement projects for its customers – back then, we were still using Version 4.x. In the German-speaking world with its large number of agencies using other systems such as Typo3, erdfisch was a true pioneer. As such, erdfisch is a "veteran" in the community of Drupal-specialized agencies in Germany.
Since Drupal is so versatile, our customers have come to us from many different sectors, including publishing, education, non-profits, associations, small and medium-sized companies, and insurance.
This exposes to the wide spectrum of challenges and requirements that customers have when it comes to web-based software. Our experience allows us to find the right solutions to these problems using Drupal.
At erdfisch we have a young and innovative team of 11 collegues.
Every year here in Germany we have Girls' Day. This is a day in which girls can see what it is like working in male-dominated industries (there is an equivalent Boys' Day as well).
We at erdfisch have been taking part in Girls' Day since 2015, so this was our third year. We had the privilege of welcoming Anna, Bianca and Franzi into our office in Heidelberg.
This has, for reasons we are not quite sure of, ended up being a three-part blog post.
So, where we left off was at the tomato farm, where it felt like being in a future farm in outer space.
But the tomato farm is not only that. It is a pony (sorry, "Icelandic horse") farm as well!
