You might feel under pressure to react quickly to constantly changing market demands and deliver engaging content that connects with your target audience. You deserve solutions that are smart and intuitive, that can do some of the hard work for you in order to deliver outstanding results even faster.

We’ve already written about how our preconfigured Drupal CMS fast tracks an initial site launch and promotes innovation. In this article, we’ll focus on specific features that streamline high-quality content production while preserving brand consistency and prioritising the creative part of your work.

Real-time frontend editing

A user-friendly approach to content editing is at the heart of our solution. Frontend editing allows marketers and content editors to make changes to content via the public facing web pages. You can simply click on the section you wish to edit and see the changes you make right away thanks to real-time previews. It enhances efficiency and is a more visual way to work, simplifying content management and improving the overall editorial experience.

The code enabling the Frontend Editing module is developed and maintained by 1xINTERNET, which has in turn been released as a Drupal module for the benefit of others.

Ready-to-use content components

Our CMS includes 90% of the standard content components out-of-the-box. During the design phase of our projects we tailor components to meet your exact needs and apply your distinctive brand, supplementing the component set with those specific to your organisation's needs.

Each component is integrated into the design system, which is adapted to align with your brand. This ensures that your brand consistency is maintained across all platforms when used in any combination in page layouts. Furthermore, the components are developed to offer the peace of mind that responsive design, accessibility compliance, and SEO best practices are supported.

With a library of ready-to-use content components, the potential for creativity is simply astounding.

Customisable content templates

This feature is especially appreciated by marketers and content editors. Imagine how much work you can save yourself by avoiding repetitive tasks. With Try Drupal you can create templates from any layout you build, which then serves as a starting point for many subsequent pages.

This feature improves productivity and prioritises the creative part of your work, allowing you to focus on creating engaging content from a consistent starting point. You’ll never create a page from scratch again, which not only saves time but introduces greater consistency and enhances the customer experience.

Flexible media management

Offering fast access to all images, videos and documents uploaded, the central media library provides the ability to organise and assign attribution and descriptions to all digital assets.

With seamless integration to page components, introducing rich media to any page layout is just a click away. Behind the scenes, Try Drupal automatically handles all issues of resizing and cropping, saving your time. You can also set the focal point for each image to ensure no matter how an image is used your brand is presented at its best.

Reports are available showing you where each asset has been published. If an asset is replaced, all instances where it is used on pages are automatically updated again, a huge time saver.

The media library works seamlessly with external systems and supports ease of integration to Digital Asset Management (DAM) and Product Information Management (PIM) systems meaning assets can be maintained outside of the media library and drawn in via automation.
