Content Management Systems

A Content Management System (CMS) gives non-technical users the ability to create, edit, manage and publish content on their own website.

The only software required is a browser, allowing you to manage the website from anywhere with an Internet connection.

A website that regularly requires adding too or updating should consider using a CMS, while the up-front cost is greater, there is no need to hire a web developer to continually make updates.

Two options are available when selecting to use a CMS:

Pre-Built CMS
