Who We Are?

Company Overview

Phelsa Information Technology develops software using the Drupal Web Development platform. We have worked with 150 + happy & satisfied clients on different kinds of websites such as charity sites, travel guide sites, event sites, community sites, medical sites, commerce sites and more. Philip started to learn Drupal in June 2007 and in the first year developed the ddblock module for Drupal together with my sister Iren. The ddblock module is a free slideshow module contributed under the Open Source GPL license to the Drupal community. Early 2009 we founded PHELSA to develop sites for clients and to sell commercial slideshow themes for the ddblock module. Phelsa moved to Bacolod end of 2010 and we conducted Drupal trainings at Colleges and Universities in the beginning of 2012. April 2012, 5 fresh graduates and 1 experienced analyst joined the company, with the goal to work on more challenging and resource intensive projects. Our client base is growing and in 2013 we plan to grow the company further. The name “PHELSA” is a combination of the names of the founders of the company, Philip and Sarah Blaauw and our first born child, Ellen.
