In this article, we are going to review some of the main advantages of Drupal, so that you can take them into account if:
- You want to migrate your site from Wordpress to Drupal
- You need to build your website from scratch with a CMS and you don't know which one to use.
- You already have a website built in Drupal and you are not sure of its benefits or if you are making the most of it.
Although in this article we talk about what Drupal is and what it is for, now we are going to delve deeper into the specific advantages of Drupal.
Advantages of Drupal for your company and organization
For the client we can mention the following immediate advantages:
Content administration - Drupal allows you to create pages very simply and quickly and you will be able to have full control of the content of your website at all times. In that sense, both for uploading and for editing texts, images and videos, you can do it directly whenever you want without directly depending on a web developer.
At the end of each project we provide clients with complete instructions for using the website and offer additional training if necessary.
Multiple users and roles - Related to the above, if you have a team of people who will be working on the site, you will be able to assign them roles with different permissions. Although in most cases the site may be in charge of one or two people, when the organization is very large or there are several areas or departments, it is likely that in practice more than 5 people are working on the site, going up and editing content. In that sense, Drupal makes the task easy, since it allows each person to have a user created with different roles and permissions. That is, one person can only access the News area, another person can be in charge of updating the Benefits area, another editor can be in charge of the products (if it is an E-Commerce store), etc.
Scalability in content and functionality - Drupal is a robust CMS that stands out especially when it comes to sites with a lot of content. You will be able to load a large number of pages and the site will continue to perform well if it is optimized. In that sense, if the content types and fields are well configured, you will be able to add all the content you need to your website.
Regarding functionality, Drupal's modular system makes it relatively quick to add new functions by installing new modules that are available on the platform's official site. This saves time and costs for the customer because it implies using existing functionality in the community and not doing development as it usually takes longer and is more expensive.
For example, if you want to add survey functionality to the site, it can be done by activating a module instead of having to program that functionality by hand.
Templates System - Drupal uses what is called Themes, templates, or templates that can be bought or built from scratch. What allows the use of the Template is to separate the structure and the content from the visual part, giving some freedom that if tomorrow you need to change the design, you can do it while keeping all the content that is already loaded. The information of the site is stored in the database and the information of the graphic styles in a template is what also gives Drupal great flexibility.
Performance and security - Drupal is characterized by being a secure CMS and in turn has a good performance system so that the site is agile and loads fast.
These are some of the main advantages of Drupal to consider.
