Why Drupal?

We have worked exclusively with the open source Drupal web development platform for nearly nine years.

Drupal powers millions of websites and applications, from personal blogs to enterprise-level, including The White House, 50%+ of federal government websites, and most Fortune 500 companies. Over one million people in 230 countries support Drupal, in use since 1999.

You (probably) wouldn't make pancakes by planting your own wheat- you'd open a bag of pancake mix. So why start from scratch with your website, or use a home-grown or proprietary system? Drupal has been battle-tested, and comes with over 35,000 ready-to-use expansion modules. No license fee required ever. Or eggs.
