Open Source Content Management (CMS)

For most clients, the most daunting aspect of commissioning a website is undoubtedly the task of collating and managing the content, both for the initial launch and once the site is live. This is generally handled via a content management system. Many traditional web development companies have legacy platforms, developed in house during the previous decade, and from which they need to generate a return.

Our approach is refreshingly different – we use open source platforms such as Drupal, DotNetNuke and Magento.

Open source means

  • Literally hundreds of thousands of developers support the platform, not just a few employees at a single firm
  • Always cutting edge technology
  • Simple to maintain
  • Great integration with social networks
  • Free to use – no initial or ongoing licence fees

What's more, do not restrict ourselves to one open source platform. The different systems each have their own particular strengths and are simpler to integrate with a given client's existing infrastructure. From our assessment of your requirements, we advise which is the most appropriate for your needs.

Meanwhile, once the website is launched, we will happily stay involved, helping you keep your content fresh and exciting, with ideas for photographs, videos, and webcasts to help you tell the world about whatever is new and needs broadcasting.
