A content management system (CMS) is an application that bolts onto the back of a website to create, edit, review, index, search, publish and archive pages on the site. The content management system is not only used on ecommerce website but also on brochure websites where images and information about the services needs to be updated and added on a regular basis. Pages such as special offers, news and added functionality can be added to the site quickly and easily.
At Advansys we understand that our clients need to change their website on a regular basis, which means that they don't want to incur the usual hourly rate that would be charged if an outside web design company were to change it for you. Many off-the-shelf content management systems do a great job as basic tasks are done quickly and without hassle. Unfortunately, like most off-the-shelf software packages, they are restricted to basic tasks and will struggle when it comes to future website developmet. This means that an initial budget CMS option may look appealing initially but any future development of the site could be hindered by the limited CMS and a more advanced option will need to be purchased.
Our future proof solution can handle any online functionality from adding blog modules and newsletter sign up to email marketing and news modules. Our content management system is flexible to suit all of the needs of the website and can adapt to site expansion. With any new feature or functionality that is added to the site over the years, the CMS is fully capable of developing in line with future functionality.
The Advansys CMS can also become the central point for editing and adding pages to a number of websites through a skinnable solution. This means that you can fully control a number of different websites, even a number of businesses, from one place which saves hours of work logging in to several systems all with different interfaces and functionality. One CMS means one system to learn for you and your colleagues, which also means one company to come back to you if you have any questions about the functionality or development.
