In late 2013, the project team delivered a radical idea to our executive team: let’s build our own custom intranet using an open-source, free solution, Drupal. For companies that need assistance with internal communication but do not have a huge budget to spend on a solution, Drupal may be what they are looking for. It was our team’s way of gaining an edge on corporate communication and getting instant results.
