It is an Open Source CMS
Drupal is an Open Source content management system (CMS). This means it is free to use even for corporate and commercial websites. The content management system allows our clients to update the website and content themselves with minimal technical knowledge.
The Drupal Community
Drupal’s biggest asset is the community of over 800,000 developers who work to improve website functionality and security.
Drupal Sites Are Scalable
Features can be added using modules, making Drupal sites scalable – blogs, feeds, galleries and other features can be added to a site after it has been launched without reconfiguring existing parts of the site.
It is Secure
Drupal has a very secure user authentication system to control access to the site. A hierarchical administration system can be created with different levels of access for different people. It is this level of security that makes Drupal a strong contender for developing governmental websites and intranets.
Drupal Has Amazing Flexibility
Drupal can be used to create almost any type of site. From social networks, online shops and directories to simple brochure sites.
Rapid Website Development and Redesign
A website can be developed in Drupal incredibly fast as most of the design and development work can be carried out in parallel, independently of each other. The look of a Drupal site is rendered from a template, separate from the files that control the site functionality. This means a site can be redesigned and refreshed without having to move or migrate the website content.
Drupal works really well with robust eCommerce solutions such as Ubercart. Website visitors can purchase products and check out as easily as on most online shops. Website administrators have a great interface for managing products and their attributes, discounts and pricing.
It Can Be Integrated With Almost Anything
Drupal can be integrated with most popular services on the web such as Facebook, MailChimp, Linkedin, Eventbrite and Twitter. If it is online and popular, you can guarantee there is Drupal module to integrate your site with it.
Drupal Has Great SEO
There are a host of great SEO plugins and modules for Drupal allowing you to optimise meta tags and page titles, create custom URL’s and sitemaps. Optimisation can be site wide, or drilled down to grain control.
