A Content Management System (or CMS) is a tool that allows an administrator, with little technical knowledge of websites, to easily add, edit, delete and publish content associated with a website. That content may be text, images, video, sound, documents and so on.
The main benefits of a CMS are:
- A CMS allows you to update the content of your website yourself. Therefore there is no need to call your web developer every time you need to make a change, so saving you time and money.
- A CMS makes it easy to organise large amounts of content in a meaningful way.
- A CMS can facilitate collaboration between staff working on common documents.
- A CMS has lots of additional features that can be added to the basic software and enhance your website. These include things like event calendars, newsletter facilities, membership facilities and so on.
The most popular content management systems in use today are Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal, all of which are open source software and so are available free of charge. NetSavvy can build your website using any of these systems.
