Why use Drupal?

Drupal is much more than just a content management system - it's a content and data framework which enables you to develop anything from simple but amazing websites to complex data management tools. It allows non-technical staff to change website content easily. It is an extremely flexible and powerful tool and is our CMS of choice for the vast majority of projects we deliver for our clients.

The platform is an Open Source initiative meaning there are thousands of developers from around the world developing it. This means that the functionality far exceeds that offered by most commercial content management systems.

Drupal itself is available with no licensing costs, as are most of the modules, which means that development budgets can be spent on developing excellent user experience and functionality rather than simply paid out for expensive license fees.


  • No license fee
  • Longevity - the CMS will outlast current design trends and can be easily re-skinned
  • Secure and stable

Development and innovation

  • Easy, license-free upgrades to newer versions
  • Exponentially more "inputs" into functionality from the developer and user community
  • Many users are true innovators pushing the boundaries of web technology
  • Resulting in short lead times for new functionality - one step ahead of the "next big thing"


  • Commercially supported by Adaptive and other agencies
  • Extremely large and active testing and developing the platform
  • 4,000+ support team
  • 650,000+ testers

Drupal is trusted and used by some of the biggest brands and organisations in the world, including:
