Not so long ago designing and managing websites was a highly specialised activity with an in depth understanding of HTML code and programming required.
Whilst lucrative for the small percentage of people who could perform this task it was also frustrating for individuals and businesses alike who couldn't’t afford these services.
Content Management Systems (CMS) were created to open up the digital market place and allow individuals to take control of their own websites and make adding content and images a much easier process.
These intuitive pieces of software allow for a wide variety of content to be added including video, images, audio and text by suitably authorised users. Non-technical users can pick up how to use the system very quickly and in turn teach other users to undertake some of the tasks for managing your website. Online shopping carts, forums, event calendars and newsletters can all be managed from within the CMS depending on the system.

Depending on your business needs adding a forum to your website can be beneficial for a number of reasons. One of these is that it will promote a higher level of traffic than you would normally expect as people return to communicate and socialise with other forum members. You can make use of this traffic to promote your products or services from within the forum or gain valuable feedback from the members on many aspects of your business.
Our higher end CMS solutions offer the opportunity to create and publish regular e-mail newsletters to your registered customers. This exploits another method of communication through which to transmit your company’s message.
