Why Laravel is the Best Platform for Your Business

When you are planning a digital transformation project for your business, there are a wide range of platforms to choose from. However, if you consult us at Steadfast Collective, we will tell you there is only one you should select – and that is Laravel.

Why use Laravel for web development and other digital projects? There are a host of reasons that make this the smart choice.

At Steadfast Collective, we work with Laravel on a daily basis. It enables us to create small community apps, sophisticated membership websites – and projects of every size in between.

We have been named as a Platinum Laravel Partner, our engineers are Laravel certified, and we are respected as one of the top Laravel agencies in the UK.

But what makes Laravel the best platform? And why use Laravel for web development? There are several compelling reasons. But one, we believe, deserves to be at the very top of the list.

It’s User Friendly

Laravel is an open-source PHP framework that was launched in 2011 and has risen steadily and surely in the years since to be regarded as one of the world’s leading platforms. 

Laravel has been designed precisely to make it easier to create web applications. At its heart is a modular packaging system that makes it possible for you to add functions quickly – without needing to write them from scratch. 

It’s Flexible

If we had to name the second most important characteristic of Laravel, it has to be flexibility. Steadfast Collective has been working with Laravel almost since it launched, and we have helped to build its ecosystem, which now features a comprehensive library of core components and packages. 

These make it easy for developers to build web applications quickly and easily, helped by the logical structure of Laravel. If you need to move in an agile manner, and if you want to create a piece of web development that can be upscaled efficiently in future, Laravel is the answer.

It’s Secure

In an age when cyber crime is a growing concern for businesses and web developers, the range of security measures and features delivered by Laravel mean you should be able to proceed with peace of mind. 

As well as a robust user authentication system, there is protection against cross-site scripting and structured query language injections. You can deploy one of several security packages, such as Laravel Security Component and Laravel-ACL, to keep your work and your data safe. 

In the unlikely event that you do identify a weakness in the security system and report it, the Laravel maintenance team will address the problem and solve it.
