A few examples of what a CMS can do for you, depending on your business:
If you're considering a CMS, we have some options for you below.
At 3003 Online, we have a base, custom-made CMS that we offer to clients while (or before) we build their sites. From there, we can expand it with additional functionality depending on your requirements. Most clients with information-based websites (i.e. mostly static pages) may require a basic CMS, allowing them to update / add / remove pages and update navigation menus too.
However, some clients require more advanced functionality custom to their business and how their web customers/visitors interact with the website. In these cases, we discuss requirements further to quote on what kind of upgrade will suit your site best. The advantage of our own CMS over an open-source one is that, if your business will require customised features to match your business needs, future upgrades will be easier controlled and managed by a team that knows the system inside-out.
If you are interested in a CMS for your website, simply contact us and we'll call you to consult and understand your requirements better so that we can offer you a 'best fit' solution.
A CMS essentially gives you the capability to change your website content without having to contact a professional / your web company. Certain elements of your website (after 'go-live') will need to be changed in time, namely page/text/image content of certain or all of your pages. We offer our own custom Content Management System (CMS) which will allow you to do this yourself - namely editing the inner content of your pages. A CMS may involve a higher investment (one time) cost but much lower maintenance fees in the long run. We can also upgrade your CMS to be custom-made to your requirements*. Of course, certain elements of your site (like web design / template structure) may not be changeable via the CMS; as a professional will be required for more complicated updates (which is why we're here for any support you may need!). For further information in developing a custom solution for your needs, please contact us.
Upgrading a CMS is a simpler task through our own CMS, as it is custom made. For an open source CMS like Wordpress, there are usually plugins (free and paid) available for a range of tasks that you may required. We'll help you decide what to pick, with future upgradability being a key factor for your decision.
Several other open-source, ready-made content management systems exist to launch a new website relatively quickly. One of the most popular examples is Wordpress, which is primarily a blog interface but very useful for launching full websites as well. We have developed several solutions in Wordpress (please contact us for details and examples). Wordpress involves designing or purchasing a ready-made template, installing the system and preparing content to launch the website. If you require a Wordpress site, please contact us with any details.
We also offer Wordpress Security services for your existing website. These include monitoring, using security plugins, and using security standards for your Wordpress application as recommended by the Wordpress team themeselves. Due to the numerous hackings of Wordpress websites over the years, this is a crucial recommendation for any business running a Wordpress site.
