Drupal Development Services

We create web pages in Drupal - a top platform for building large websites and web applications. Such systems are easy to scale and customize and help you get a high position in Google.

We've built our team around Drupal, hiring the best developers from all over Poland. Our goal is to create websites based on Drupal the right way. Our great advantage is the fact that our processes are focused on automation when building Drupal systems. We have a single code repository, automated build process, and testing environment that reflects production as closely as possible. We often commit changes and perform automated testing.

Droptica is the top Drupal development company

We’ve been using Drupal for over ten years. We developed hundreds of Drupal websites, both small and large. Our methodology ensures the efficient delivery and operation of systems of any size. We love building websites using Drupal because it lets us provide our customers with a lot of value at an affordable price. Drupal makes this possible due to a large number of ready-made components. We also appreciate this CMS for its security. Some of the mechanisms that compose it are the possibilities to save the website configuration to .yml files, an error reporting system that documents every security breach, and advanced permission management.

We’re active members of the Drupal community. We added quite a few new modules and helped in the development of many of the existing ones. Our distribution - Droopler - enables the users to quickly create both simple and complex Drupal websites. We also share our knowledge on this system in Poland during our web development meetings every two months, as well as encourage the international experts to do it by organizing the annual Drupal Camp Poland conference.

Drupal development - case studies

Since 2008, we've built many websites for companies representing a broad range of industries, like legal, manufacturing, finance, charity, publishing, or ecommerce. Drupal is a great choice for every company, so we're ready to cooperate with any type of business. We’re always excited to take up new challenges. Look at the projects we've already completed.

Drupal ecosystem is large. We can help with many aspects

Drupal has become far more than just a tool for building a small company website. It is one of the basic sales and marketing systems, often the most important in a particular company. Drupal successfully performs the tasks of an ecommerce platform or a system for delivering large amounts of content to many users or external systems. It is also perfect for dedicated internal systems such as CRM, document circulation, and intranet systems.

Website building and development

When planning a new website, you most likely want a proven system that will be developed over the next few years. You'd also like to get it for a reasonable price. Drupal is an open source system so you won't have to pay for a license for using it. It's developed by the active community of developers and quite a few companies are offering Drupal development services. By choosing a website based on Drupal and built by Droptica, you gain a proven system and a proven team that effectively leads a project to the end.

We build websites on Drupal from scratch. We’ll help you with all aspects related to website building - architecture planning, hosting, graphic design, coding, testing, performance optimization, and post-implementation support. Our team of developers, testers, UX designers, DevOps specialists, and project managers will share their expertise and guide you through the software development journey.

Development of existing systems

Many of our clients came to us with an already existing website or application based on Drupal. They needed a solid team that would help them continuously develop their system. At Droptica, we do it perfectly.

We can quickly find ourselves in an existing project and start delivering new functionalities. Our team doesn’t need much time to understand a system built by other developers. The years of experience taught us what to expect. Our Drupal development company will not only do the assigned tasks but also suggest improvements and advise you in determining the general direction of your system development.

We also design user experience and interfaces and conduct A/B testing. This method enables you to check which version of the analyzed element of your website performs better.

We’ll automate the processes of pushing new versions to the production servers and testing. Thanks to that, we’ll be able to deliver new functionalities without breaking other parts of the system or interrupting its operation.

Migration to Drupal

Drupal is a constantly developed system. Being up-to-date with its latest improvements, you can use more of the greatest possibilities it offers. If you want to migrate your website in Drupal 6, 7, or 8 to the newest version, or move your website from another system, we’ll be more than happy to help you! Our Drupal development company carried out many data migrations, the majority of which were databases with several hundred thousand records concerning content and users. We aren’t afraid of big numbers, but we can also migrate to smaller systems. While migrating to Drupal, we can also improve the system and its data structure, add new functionalities, and adjust the CMS to your current business needs.

Integrating Drupal with external systems

We integrated more than 80 different systems using REST/JSON, XML, XML-RPC, Soap, and many more technologies. We connected Drupal with mobile applications, ERP and CRM systems, as well as to devices based on Linux and Android. Among the external services we integrated Drupal with are PayPal, Dotpay, Freshmail, Mailchimp, Mautic, and Magento.

Drupal modules and themes

Users don’t like nonintuitive or ugly websites. Appearance is very important because it determines whether you can win over new customers. At Droptica, we put a lot of emphasis on user experience and design. We help our clients develop systems that are rock-solid, beautiful, and useful at the same time. We create graphics and themes for Drupal. We use Bootstrap 4, Twig, SCSS, and other state-of-the-art technologies. Our work on new templates starts with creating a mock-up for a home page. Then we prepare the same for the subpages. In the next step, we handle graphic designs for subpages. And at the end, we create a Drupal theme based on them.

You don’t know which Drupal module to implement to meet your particular need? We can advise you which of the existing modules can be the best fit for you. We’re also able to expand its possibilities to fulfill your requirements or create a more complex module that nobody has developed yet. If it can be coded in PHP, we can do it! Some of the modules we’ve already built helped our customers with integrating Drupal with other systems, improving editorial tasks on information-rich websites, and extending possibilities of Drupal Commerce.

Drupal performance optimization

Data structures that are too complex, incorrect configuration of the system, or your server may decrease Drupal efficiency. We specialize in speeding up Drupal websites. By using NewRelic and Blackfire logs, we detect performance problems in the tested systems and then present a proposal to solve them.

We can also deal with the occasional or regular traffic increases on your website, setting scalable and flexible infrastructure. It’s also cost-effective as the spending increases during the high traffic and goes down when the number of visitors is lower. The solution which helps us achieve all of that is, for example, AWS AutoScalling.

Drupal SEO audit

Most of the traffic on every website comes from Google Search, so it’s very important to work on SEO for your web page. We have extensive experience in SEO. We are constantly monitoring trends and changes in algorithms, and we can perform an extensive SEO audit of a Drupal website. We evaluate its speed and the factors influencing it, operation on mobile devices, and safety. Once the audit is ready, we can also implement the recommendations included in it.

Drupal code audit

Drupal has a huge potential, which makes it a great system. However, sometimes it allows too much, and the code quality in some Drupal modules leaves much to be desired. You can order an audit of your website code. Code review is a standard process in our work - we do it in every project. We’ll review the code in your system, point out the potential opportunities for speeding it up, improving its security, or quality.

Droptica – Drupal projects in numbers

We are involved in the development of many large applications. However, we are also happy to implement smaller-scale projects and share our experience gathered by building more extensive systems. We approach every project with the highest diligence and respect.
