Content Management Systems

Manage your content, control your business

Isn't it annoying when your website is out of date and you can't change it.

Or isn’t it frustrating when you need to get your news up quick on your site before you leave on a Friday evening but you have to wait around for your web guy to get it up.

With a content management system, you have complete control of your website and can update it whenever and from wherever  you like.  This is different from a traditional “static” website where you would have to ring your web developer to make the most simple of changes.

But which platform to choose?

All CMS are not the same.  Some are better for certain types of projects either in size, functionality or speed.

We are not prescriptive about which platform your website should be built on. We would prefer to listen to your requirements, find out what your future plans are, learn who will be updating the website etc and then decide on which tool to use for the job.

Which platforms do we work with?

We have our own content marketing system called Quill or we are happy to work with off the shelf systems, open source platforms, such as WordPress or Umbraco where appropriate.

Open source software is software that is freely available to anyone who wants to use it. This is great as the open source community also develop plugins and modules that are easily added to the website which makes development that bit quicker and easier.  The other great advantage is that with open source software there are no licensing costs.

Caveat emptor

Some people think that a reason for using  open source is that you are not locked into any one agency as you are not using proprietary code.  There is some logic to this but it’s not so simple.  The nature of open source is that it is flexible and adaptable and by its very nature as soon as you touch it it’s no longer “off the shelf” and its down to the quality of the developer that makes it transferable or not.  Every developer has his own way of doing things and few relish the prospect of taking over someone else’s work whatever the platform.

Where do we do it?

All our content management work is carried out in-house at our Hammersmith office in West London, W6.  We do not outsource our work. We are a team of about 15, geared towards building our clients’ businesses and brands online.
