Some companies are content with a relatively simple website that merely imparts information about their products or services to visitors. But for most businesses these days, that is not enough.
Customers want an interactive experience with companies via their websites, particularly via apps.
They want instant information and instant communication.
The way to provide this immediate interaction capability is by building web applications.
There are many platforms for building web apps. Each promises to be the best. So, what's the deal? There are two ways to know which is best for you: either try different platforms or follow the research and recommendations of industry experts. Could it be that, with Drupal, web applications are more robust, flexible, functional and supported? Let's see.
Drupal is a trusted content management system (CMS) used worldwide. Yes, so is WordPress and others. But WordPress has limitations that Drupal has overcome. For example, WordPress has security issues that can be difficult to stay on top of, probably because it is pitched at your average blogger rather than dedicated app developers. After considerable time and effort promoting itself as user friendly and intuitive, user experiences with WordPress have indicated otherwise. Meanwhile it's tutorials are not particularly helpful or even adequate and it struggles with SEO unless you include the right plug-ins. And often the biggest WordPress problem is that its developers provide no meaningful support and rely on the goodness of its community of users to spread helpful tips.
Yes, both WordPress and Drupal involve coding work for creating apps. That is inevitable for apps. But there are significant benefits to using Drupal for developing web applications.
Drupal offers high performance business tools and is easy to maintain. It also provides APIs that make application development smoother and more organized.
Web applications made with Drupal can be customized to suit the needs of any business:-
These are just some of the many web applications that can provide an enjoyable interactive experience for customers and stimulate business growth.
