  • Coupon creation
  • Coupon redemption
  • Payment integration
  • Shopping cart functions

In addition to its commerce capabilities, Drupal also works well for community portal sites, new publishing sites, blogs, and other collaborative authoring environments.

WordPress

Wordpress established a reputation as being the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world. The platform also happens to be an effective CMS that is completely customizable with countless plugins, widgets, and themes. The beauty of this open-source blogging and website CMS is that it allows both users and developers to make changes to an application based on ability level. Those who have specific experience in PHP or MySQL can program changes just as easily as those who have a more limited knowledge of the inner workings of the CMS.

Millions of people and a variety of businesses both large and small use WordPress for multi-user sites and blogs. It has an intelligent text formatting system, making it easy to manage, and saves all the changes you make directly to your site’s template. The team of experienced developers at Harlow Technologies will help create a system that leverages the simplicity of Wordpress to compliment their client’s technical ability.
