From Pfizer and Tesla to The Economist and The White House, more than a million websites worldwide rely on the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) as the engine powering their online experiences and digital transformation strategy.
Secure, scalable and highly flexible, Drupal can be configured to deliver the exact content and functionality you need to serve both user needs and business goals, whenever and wherever it’s required.
And as your organisation evolves and your requirements change, the Drupal CMS will adapt along with you, providing the perfect platform for long-term growth.
Of course to make the most of Drupal’s capabilities, you need an implementation partner with not only the technical skill, but the strategic insight needed to unlock its full potential. And, as a Drupal development agency, that’s exactly what Box UK offers.
We’re proud to be part of Drupal’s extensive global community, which comprises over 1,000,000 passionate developers, designers, trainers, coordinators, editors and sponsors all working together to support and strengthen this open-source CMS.
Our team is highly experienced in implementing Drupal for organisations across both the public and private sector, applying enterprise development best practice along with the following technologies to help us get the very most out of the system:
And our development team are highly experienced in working with the Symfony components underpinning the Drupal CMS, having delivered numerous innovative projects using the technology; ranging from a digital platform for RS Components’ global engineering community to powerful, data-driven applications that have streamlined core processes for the British Horseracing Authority.
Plus of course our developers follow a tried-and-tested process that ensures the highest levels of quality in everything they deliver, while our consultancy services draw on the team’s extensive experience providing expert technical advice and guidance to truly get under the skin of your business, and design a digital solution tailored to your requirements, motivations and goals.
For organisations already using Drupal to power their digital platform, it’s important to prepare for Drupal 9, ahead of support for Drupal 7 and 8 being removed in November 2021. A robust Drupal migration plan will ensure your current platform is optimised ahead of your Drupal 9 upgrade, and mitigate against any risks with dependencies, third-party modules and technical debt.
Box UK’s developers and consultants are perfectly placed to support you in your Drupal migration, assessing your readiness for Drupal 9 and identifying the most suitable upgrade path for your current context and future needs. From standard data migrations (typically required when moving from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9) to more complex rebuilds (which may be required if you’re upgrading from Drupal 7) we’ll support you throughout every step of the process, to deliver a high-performance platform that you can be confident will be supported and maintained over the long-term.
With your content decoupled from delivery, you’re in control of exactly how it looks and performs, and can optimise its presentation to suit a wide range of different platforms, channels and devices. This also gives front-end developers more freedom in the way they build sites and apps – allowing them to use libraries and frameworks such as Angular and React to craft the perfect experience, quickly.
A mature CMS designed with robust security in mind, you can trust in Drupal to handle even the most mission-critical of your sites and applications.
A dedicated security team constantly monitors for and responds to potential threats – regularly releasing bug fixes and security updates to the core CMS to help reduce on-going maintenance and support costs – while the vast global development community ensures that all code meets stringent quality standards to further minimise the risk of vulnerabilities.
You don’t just have to rely on Drupal modules to create your digital solution. The CMS can be extended still further through integration with external services and other applications in your ecosystem, such as customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, and other critical line-of-business systems – opening up a world of opportunity and ensuring seamless assimilation with your existing infrastructure.
When it comes to websites and applications, Drupal is used to doing heavy lifting – supporting large enterprises including GE and Pfizer, along with sites that experience extreme traffic bursts such as the GRAMMY Awards and NBC Olympics. So whatever your plans for the future, you can be confident that the CMS will support them every step of the way.
As an open-source platform Drupal benefits from one of the largest developer communities in the world.
The collaborative and cooperative nature of the Drupal ecosystem means that all of the features mentioned above are constantly being improved and extended, with more features added every six months as part of a scheduled release cycle – encouraging on-going innovation and safeguarding quality at every level.
Drupal’s intuitive tools for content editors and administrators mean that you can focus on the experience you deliver, not the process of creating it.
Configurable permissions and workflows make it easy to manage content publication without compromising on quality, while sophisticated tagging and taxonomy capabilities allow you to classify your content according to a range of attributes, so that it can be easily found and used by your audience.
As a major operational risk association, ORX needs to be confident that all their news content is both accurate and accessible – and that’s exactly what we delivered with a web application built using the open-source Drupal 8 CMS.
Members can now get to the content they need much more easily and, with ORX better able to demonstrate the value of membership, engagement with the application has grown too – leading to a more than 40% increase in traffic and a number of new trial sign-ups.
