Web portal development

Imagine you’re researching a topic for your doctoral thesis or working closely with a particular industry or an international community. One day you find a website that literally has all you need: it includes a strong search so that you can find all you need in across terabytes of information, offers great customer service, and other than that it has a modern intuitive interface! Wait, are we talking about web portals?

Our web portal development services

Web portals that are platforms dedicated to providing services and information to a particular group of people, definitely have their specific features and typical though custom web solutions. Web portal development like any other development consists of several stages and services. See what our portal development company offers.


UX (user experience) design

The overall process of how users communicate with a website is the basis for any design. When we know how users interact with pages and how they are supposed to complete a key action - we draw mock-ups of pages.


UI (user interface) design

It’s the stage where we apply brand colors, finish grey wireframes and make them bright and beautiful.

Web development

Once the design is complete, we build a website. Back-end developers turn business processes into a particular logical set of actions on the website. Front-end developers turn digital assets into a beautiful pixel-perfect web design.

Web portal support and maintenance

Your website will always be easy and safe to use for end customers. ADCI Solutions keeps an eye on regular security updates and suggests what can be improved.

Kinds of web portals

There are different kinds of portals that we can develop for your business. 

  1. A vendor portal is sometimes called a partner portal. If your organization collaborates with many partners and supporting organizations and you have a mutual initiative that you develop together, you need a vendor portal. It accumulates content for vendors and usually doesn’t have many access levels. Share a workflow description, a guide on how to be involved and rules for all participating vendors.
  2. A customer portal. If your company sells a popular product (iPhone) or offers a complex service, you might need a place to let your customers communicate with each other. There they can share and talk about common issues and problems, and solve problems together. Such a forum can become a great help for your customer support! This kind of portal is also known as a community portal.
  3. E-learning portal. This educational platform either covers inquiries on a particular subject (say, a portal with information on endangered species of North America) or unites different topics that are a part of the educational programs of some organization (a university).
  4. Intranet portal. If your team needs a special tool with a highly customed functionality like a CRM system or an ERP system, we will create a unique portal based on your goals and objectives.

Bibliography and Citation (aka BibCite) 

Bibliography and Citation is the most important module in Drupal for keeping, outputting, exporting and importing bibliographic data. There’s no substitute for it in Drupal 8. The project also helps to design citation of sources according to thousands of standards that have been accepted at different times in different organizations.

The project consists of several submodules:

  • Bibliography & Citation
  • Bibliography & Citation - Entity
  • Bibliography & Citation - Import
  • Bibliography & Citation - Export
  • Bibliography & Citation - BibTeX 
  • Bibliography & Citation - Endnote
  • Bibliography & Citation - Marc
  • Bibliography & Citation - RIS

Find more details about each of them in the case study about BibCite.

Use cases 

We asked Bibcite’s users, web developers of research centers and universities, about their experience.

Ricardo Marcelino told us about Omibee Research, a prebuilt Drupal installation with Bibliography & Citation in the core package that enables research centers and institutes to have their own online platform with low entry effort. They extended this Drupal project by creating modules that allow syncing publications from ORCID, DSpace, and other sources.

João Rochate from Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa said that BibCite helps to organize and catalog CLUL scientific production by associating publications with each member. Some reports for research evaluation can also be produced from the publication database. From a set of submodules, the Crossref and PubMed modules are most used.

The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies’s website is maintained by Plethora Design. It contains the page with publications, each provided with Google Scholar and DOI links, and some modules are used for importing bibliographic data.

Find more information in the article “Six use cases that highlight the benefits of the Bibliography & Citation project”.

BibCite is just great for organizing any information and can be used on websites for media, libraries, magazines, and so on. BibCite can organize any information the way you like it, and make it easy to migrate between websites.
