Located in Carrborro, North Carolina, Counter Tools is a non-profit provider of software tools, training, and technical assistance meant to facilitate local and state-level policy change affecting the retail environment. Their main goal is to build capacity and advance place-based public health, which they are achieving through the deliverance of quality consulting.

The previous Counter Store Audit Center website was running on a Drupal 6 multi-site platform. The Drupal community dropped support for version 6 in February of 2016. This meant the end of new functionality and security updates putting their many data entry users in a vulnerable position.
DesignHammer provided a successful migration of highly valuable content to a new Drupal 7 platform. And even though the visual design hadn't changed, the updated theme functionality provided a better mobile-friendly user experience. This is a huge improvement given that most of the data is entered in the field on handheld devices.
