Drupal is an open source content management system that can be used to develop a variety of Web sites: personal; corporate; community portals like discussion forums and social networking Web sites; and complex applications like e-commerce and intranet. The Drupal CMS enables Web editors to easily publish and manage content appearing on the sites.

Drupal is written using the PHP scripting language and is available under the GNU public license. It supports a wide range of operating systems such as Linux, Solaris, BSD, Windows and Mac OSX, etc.

Drupal is based on extensible and modular architecture. Various plug-in modules and components can be easily integrated with it to enhance its basic functions. Customized modules that provide additional/enhanced features not available with Drupal can be developed and integrated with the solution.

The IndaPoint team is expert at developing Drupal-based Web applications. Keeping Drupal as a base, we also develop custom modules that can be integrated to provide customized solutions.
