Content Management Systems - CMS


We are proud of the fact that we were one of the first web design companies within Wales to deploy Content Management Systems as standard. We started doing this back in 2005, when most other companies were still writing websites in static html.

During this time, we have seen the CMS market develop and grow and now there is a wide choice of CMS' on the market. For us the key to a good CMS is three-fold;

  • Availability of Modules
  • Flexibility and Scaleability
  • Ease of Use

Over the past few years, we have developed our own CMS, tried and tested some of the main open source CMS' such as Joomla and Drupal, and even seen blogging software such as WordPress try to become a complete CMS.

For us, there is really only one CMS that we recommend - Typo3

We are an honest company, so we will be honest here ... when we first started to use Typo3 we hated it! From an administrators perspective it was far too complicated and took far to long to deploy, but then (eventually) we worked out how to use it, became familiar with its architecture and realised that we were working with one of the most comprehensive, flexible and reliable CMS' currently available.

Even more so we realised that for clients the managing of content, manipulation of images and thousands of available modules made Typo3 the perfect CMS for businesses and organisations of all sizes.

We're different, we believe in delivering a top level CMS package at affordable prices. Our standard CMS package is feature rich and designed to deliver benefits to all of our clients.

TYPO3 is also fully future proof ...

Doing business online means that as a business you have to be able to adapt quickly to an ever changing environment. Having a CMS that allows you to adapt and grow your website without major surgery is for many businesses essential.

TYPO3 is one of the only CMS that continually updates its framework, not just with "patches" but with full version upgrades ensuring that the latest technologies such as HTML5 and jquery are easily available regardless of when you last updated the website. TYPO3 also boasts one of the most comprehensive extension libraries, ensuring that any new trend or service that becomes available can usually be integrated within a matter of weeks. This naturally vastly reduces development time therefore cost of any website.

Whenever we build a new website based on TYPO3 we do so in full confidence that as our client's requirements alter then TYPO3 offers the flexibility to adapt without the need for re-builds or installing a new CMS.

TYPO3 really is Content Management at its very best!
