5 benefits of Drupal for enterprise websites

1 January 2022

Many large organisations find it hard to choose a CMS. Comprehensive websites need a lot of features that are not built into every system. We prefer Drupal, one of the most popular open-source CMS platforms for multinationals. Drupal offers many advantages to large organisations and multinationals, like BMW Motorrad, IFFR and Maastricht University. We’re happy to share them with you!

Drupal reduces costs

Drupal is an open-source CMS. That doesn’t always stand for freedom. But in the case of Drupal, it does. While comparable systems can easily cost hundreds or even thousands of euros per month, Drupal doesn't charge you anything. You may have to pay for hosting, extra modules and other additional services, but all in all, Drupal's price tag is not too bad.

Drupal is supported by a substantial community

Drupal 9 is one of the few CMS platforms that can count on the support of a close community of developers, webmasters and content managers. This community now numbers more than a million Drupal experts.

Knowledge sharing is very important to iO. No wonder we have various specialists who contribute to the Drupal project. With 130 passionate experts, we even have the largest Drupal team in the Benelux.

Drupal is scalable and flexible

Looking for a CMS that can grow along with your organisation? Drupal is the right choice, thanks in part to its headless capabilities.

Drupal is used by websites that deal with extreme traffic peaks, such as the GRAMMY Awards and the NBC Olympics website. Large organisations that need multi-channel websites with customised content, such as Pfizer and weather.com, also rely on Drupal.

Drupal has built-in features that ensure the performance of your website. This makes it one of the most scalable and flexible CMS platforms available today.

Drupal is market leader in multilingual websites

No CMS offers better multilingual capabilities than Drupal. More than 100 languages are immediately available, and automatic translation makes it easy to reach international audiences with localised content. This is great news for organisations with a multi-site brand platform. Do you wish for an accessible website that scores well on SEO and achieves a high conversion rate? With Drupal's accessible tools, your wishes may come true.

Modules and integrations

The foundation of Drupal is built with PHP, Symfony, Twig and Composer. These components will sound familiar to many developers. But in addition to this accessible basis, it is also possible to fully customise your enterprise website.

There are thousands of free and paid modules and themes that change existing functions of Drupal or add extra functionalities to your website. Think of modules to manage metatags, to create forms, to build sitemaps, and to create redirects between URLs.

These modules improve your experience with Drupal. By enabling integrations with third parties, for instance. Facebook, Google Analytics, Salesforce, AWS… whatever integration you need, you'll most likely find it at Drupal!
