Content Management Systems

Redesigning your existing site and upgrading to a Content Management System (CMS) is a simple and effective way of taking your site to a new level.

Suddenly, you have the ability to update and change content instantly - without requiring any technical skills.

It's as easy as copying and pasting text between applications - our customised CMS does all the hard work for you.

We base all our solutions on Drupal.  As Content Management Systems go it is hard to beat.

It is also supported by an active online community of many thousands of experienced website designers and developers and is being continually enhanced and developed.

All our own websites are customised using Drupal.  These sites range from straightforward brochure and ecommerce sites to interactive online communities with thousands of users and pages, user-generated content and integrated streaming video.

This means that your investment in your new or re-designed website is safeguarded in a number of ways:
 

  • We will continue to invest time and resources in developing our own sites, modules, skills and online tools with Drupal - meaning we can rapidly develop new features for you.
     
  • Drupal is open-source software and there is a huge army of suitably qualified developers and agencies that could take over the management of the technical aspects of the site build and maintenance from us (in the unlikely event that you wanted to move elsewhere).
     
  • Drupal is constantly evolving and there is a huge library of new features, modules and functionality being added on a daily basis - meaning you have access to a modern, secure, scalable and resilient architecture for your site.

We haven't come across a technical problem that could not be painlessly resolved by a customised module for Drupal.

These are just some of the features that we have implemented on our sites and our customers' sites:

  • Integrated Video
