Why choose Drupal in 2024?

There is no “one size fits all” when choosing a CMS framework – we’ll always select the best technical solutions to suit your requirements. But for those needing an enterprise scale CMS, Drupal’s powerful, scalable, flexible, open-source framework is the perfect tool: it can designed and built exactly to your content publishing requirements.

We collaborate with your stakeholders to discover what you really need from your Drupal site; using these insights to determine the content architecture and functionality needed. So, whether you need to switch from another CMS for enhanced features and scalability, consolidate a large web estate onto a streamlined, cost-effective platform, or if you want to upgrade from a legacy Drupal 7 site, we’ll design and deliver a website tailored to your organisation’s exact needs.

    Our Drupal development services

    Website consolidation with Drupal

    Whether from mergers and acquisitions, or organisational growth, website ecosystems can become unwieldy. They may spread across different technologies and platforms, reducing efficiency and increasing costs and carbon footprint.

    We have extensive experience in website consolidation onto Drupal platforms. Consolidation can improve SEO, performance and security, reduce content and technical management, enhance user journeys and UX and reduce your costs and carbon emissions.

    User-centred Drupal development and design

    To reap the benefits of Drupal’s powerful functionality, our Drupal development approach integrates UX, content, and SEO strategy into the design of your Drupal CMS in what we call the UX Content Strategy Framework (UXCSF).

    By understanding how your team needs to create and manage content, what content your users actually need, what content you already have (or don’t have!), and your marketing KPIs, we guide you on the creation of accessible, useful, findable content for your Drupal site. Using the insights to build the information architecture and design of your CMS, whether structured data for rich snippets in Google search or designing content publishing workflows with complex permissions.
