Content Management Systems
A content management system makes it possible for non-technical users such as marketers and content editors to update a website. Bluehouse Group has used numerous CMS tools over the years – we even created our own at one point. Which one is right for your project? Our proven process helps us understand your needs first and then find the right solution. Since projects vary widely based on technical specs, 3rd party integrations, and other factors, we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution. Here are some of our preferred solutions:
- SilverStripe CMS
- Custom CMS
A content management systems (CMS) make it possible for non-technical people such as marketers and content editors to take command of their website. It becomes easy to post events, publish a blog, post photos or videos, update page copy, or even create new pages.
We deliver a CMS with nearly every website project. We want our clients to be as independent as they want to be.
Which CMS is right for your project? We believe it’s important to define project requirements before picking a tool. You don’t want to paint yourself into a corner, or wrestle with the wrong tool for the job. We’ve used numerous content management systems, and we have perspective on their strengths and weaknesses. Factors affecting choice of CMS include:
- Will your website need to connect to external systems?
- Is there a database required?
- What special features or interactive elements are envisioned?
- What about scalability? What growth is anticipated?
- Where does security fit within your priorities?
- What about maintainability over time? What changes are anticipated?
These factors should be considered carefully when determining which is the right CMS platform. We’ve been getting calls from more companies lately asking us for rescue help. Their web partner is in over their head, or results are unsatisfactory, or website performance is disappointing. We sometimes take on rescue missions, but wouldn’t it be better to do it right the first time?
Among the benefits of working with Bluehouse, we have strong technical skills. The proliferation of developers with limited skills reminds us of the adage: If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
