Do I need a Content Managed Website?
Does your website play a significant role within your marketing strategy? Do you need to make regular updates to your website?
Do you sell or showcase products on your site? Do you rely on an external agency to make changes to your site?
If the answer to any or many of the questions above is ‘yes’
, implementing a Content Management System will help your business grow and become more competitive.
What is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System (CMS) enables you to manage (add and edit) the content of your website easily and efficiently, whilst eliminating many web maintenance costs. This differs to the traditional ‘static’ website that relies on web programming knowledge and very often an external agency to make changes to your website which can result in additional costs and inconvenient time delays.
At Fast Floor we have spent many years developing numerous CMS software solutions. We have placed great emphasis on developing systems that are both usable and easy to learn, to assist users in keeping their sites fresh and up to date to meet the needs of site visitors.
How does a Content Management System work?
A content managed website (such as this one) can be edited from anywhere in the world. With internet access, a standard web browser and the necessary rights and access to the site, changes can be made – instantly. No additional software is required, giving you complete flexibility as to:
a) who can update, which area(s) of the website
b) who approves content additions and amendments
c) who can view which private areas (secure extranet)
Content, once in the database, can be edited, moved, searched, archived or deleted at the click of a button.
What are the benefits of a Fast Floor CMS?
In addition to the cost and efficiency savings identified above, a Fast Floor content management system will be tailored to your business needs. Unlike off-the-shelf software, we never make assumptions about your business; we take time to understand the way you operate so your CMS works exactly as you require. You have total flexibility to develop and customise your Enterprise Level CMS over time, so that it grows with you.
