Content Management Systems (CMS)
Benefits of an Effective Content Management System
If created properly, a content management system (CMS) can help your company do the following:
- Allow every employee at your company to use, share and distribute data
- Control the use of the data via various access levels
- Offer easy storage and retrieval of data
- Practically eliminate duplicative input
- Advance your company’s research and report capabilities
- Maximize user communication
Why use a Content Management System (CMS)?
A CMS allows for multiple users to have access to edit content changes to website. Features of these powerful systems include:
Full standards compliance — Every bit of generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation.
No rebuilding — Changes you make to your templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages.
Pages — Pages allow you to manage content easily.
Spam protection — Tools such as an integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and eliminate comment spam on your website.
Password Protected Areas — You can give passwords to individual areas to hide them from the public. You can also have private areas which are viewable only by their author.
Workflow — You can have types of users that can only post drafts, or not publish to the front page.
Intelligent text formatting — If you've dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking
your formatting and validation. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code. Includes spell checking!
Multiple authors — Highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users.
Secure, Powerful and Up-To-Date — Over 30 million running installations. WordPress is as secure as any other well written and actively maintained web software. Generally neither WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Expression Engine or other Content Management System is in itself the weak point. Outdated plugins and poorly maintained servers are the number 2 and 3 causes for insecurity.
Complete Menu and Navigation Management — Control your menus and navigation through an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface.
Version Retention and Logging — Previous versions of page content are automatically saved for future retrieval, and a log of modifications to each page or post ensures future compliance.
Intuitive Ad Display and Messages — System can track users who have previously visited the website and serve alternate, rotating content such messaging or imagery on each visit.

CMS Website Maintenance and Development
A content management system is a little bit like plumbing, you don’t notice it until something goes wrong. That’s why having experts who can integrate the right content management system into your website design (and even to manage your app), one that fits your specific needs, is so important in the current business climate. Installing, managing, maintaining and/or repairing your content management system requires knowledge of the various types of software, knowledge of your business and an ability to provide a high-level of consultative advice.
