Having a content management system (CMS) built into your website design is one of the most commonly requested requirements from our customers. But what are the benefits of a CMS and why would your business need one?
1) Manage the content yourself
A CMS enables you to update your site’s content as and when you need to. You are in complete control of updates and do not have to wait for your turn in the development queue for your changes to be implemented – changes are instant too. With our CMS your website can be updated from any where and on any computer using a simple administration area and an internet connection of course!
2) Cost free updates!
Along the same lines as point one but worthy of it’s own point is cost free updates. As you manage the content yourself you do not need to pay a third party to do the changes for you. For instance, say your developer had a minimum charge of £35 you could end up paying at least £35 every time you request a change no matter how small. With a CMS you can eliminate these charges and save yourself money.
3) Keeping it fresh and up-to-date
Updating your content on a regular basis shows customers that you company is evolving and will keep them coming back to visit. For example, a news area will allow you to publish all your company’s news and let customers keep up to date with your company’s developments.
4) No technical knowledge required
PoLR’s CMS is so simple to use that you need no technical knowledge at all to update your website. You log in to a secure admin area and navigate to the area you want to update. You are then shown a text area with Word like icons, type in your changes and hit update and that’s it, you updates are immediately viewable on your live website. If you can use Word you can use our PoLR’s CMS.
5) Spread the responsibility
As there is no technical knowledge required and a secure admin area it is possible for you to grant access to whoever you want in your company and allow them to update the content.
