CMS Website
Build &
Development

Easy to use content management solutions.

When you launch your business into the online space, you’ll have spent time carefully crafting the look and feel of your website and content to attract and appeal. Or, you might have an existing website that you’ve added a bit to over the years, and perhaps it becomes a little unwieldy.

Regardless of whether you’re new to growing your business online or an old hand, website maintenance and content creation are one of those essential tasks. As you develop new products or services or change older ones to keep up with customer feedback and website trends, the images, text and structure of your website will require updating to reflect what’s new. Your blog will need updating regularly, and new pages, campaigns and features all require refreshes and fresh content from time to time.

That’s where modern content management systems (or CMS’s) come into their own to help you make the ongoing upkeep of your website as easy as a few clicks.

Content management systems enable you or your team to refresh content, add new pages or change around your website structure always to remain relevant and up to date. And ensure you’re consistently hitting the right notes appealing to those hard-won visits you’re seeking so you can convert them into long term customers. CMS platform solutions come out of the box designed for ease of use regardless of technical ability. Crucially so you can do it yourself without the additional cost of more expensive development resources.

Today’s modern and best of class CMS solutions enable you to:

  • Easily manage content and updates, even for non-technical users.
  • Schedule updates
  • Create and launch new pages
  • Optimise content for SEO
  • Support multiple users and workflows (e.g. edits and approvals)
  • Launch campaigns and landing pages
  • Optimise content and conversions
  • Manage customer services and community features

CMS Platforms Solutions

At Vsourz, we develop CMS platform solutions across a range of technologies, features and functions matched to your needs. From open-source platforms to more complex multilingual and community-based solutions.

And don’t worry if all that sounds a bit technical. We can demonstrate how it all works, so you understand the benefits and advantages before we undertake a CMS platform development or customisation project for your business. We also train all of our clients in how to use the CMS features we deploy and are always on hand should you ever have questions or need some help along the way.

We have 15 years of experience working with content platform solutions. Today, all content management systems make it easy to manage content updates and website maintenance. Accordingly, when asking what cms? – your choice of cms platform will be down to the features and functions you might want to add in now or later. Or existing technologies you might wish to integrate with such as CRMs and eCommerce. Our preferred content management systems are:

WordPress

WordPress is a free open source content management system that powers more than 35% of the websites on the Internet. With over 40m downloads and a massive active install base, WordPress can do pretty much everything. It's no doubt one of the best cms solutions out there for business, blogs and content-rich websites.

The open-source community has built WordPress using PHP language and MySQL database, two of the most common and well-supported development languages and database solutions, respectively.

Umbraco

Umbraco, on the other hand, is built on Microsoft technologies. Also full of features, free to install and use, Umbraco is no small player with over half a million websites using their underlying technologies. Umbraco is an excellent fit for organisations that may already have existing Microsoft technologies in place or be looking for a more enterprise-level cms platform solution.

Drupal, also free open source software, is described as a digital experience management system. Often best suited to more custom cms platform solutions and digital eco-systems drupal provides a robust and popular platform providing speed, agility and flexibility to build out everything from basic website frameworks to advanced personalised web applications across devices.

CMS Website Development
Features

Easy Maintenance

Maintain your content and user experience for relevance

If you have a website that’s always full of fresh content, you’ll most likely be using your website daily. For business shop windows, the updates may be less frequent but are just as important.

Content management solutions provide a simple and easy to use interface for you to create, edit and manage the content on your website. Sometimes called a back end interface, they allow you to access a visual editor, a bit like the interface you might be used to when using Microsoft word or google docs. Using the visual editor, you can carefully craft the right content to appeal to your audiences. These are sometimes called WYSIWYG editors – or What You See is What You Get.

More advanced features such as structural edits can be as easy as a drag and drop. We further help to ensure that the learning curve is straight forward by ensuring that different editor roles only have access to what they need.

Easy for Anyone to Use

Easy content maintenance regardless of experience

Before CMS solutions became a popular means for managing a web site’s content when website owners required an update it’d be a matter of either going in house of external providers for the required coding knowledge to create new pages.

Today, however, a vital cms platform is that anyone can undertake content creation and management without technical knowledge. With a little training which Vsourz provide as standard, through a simple and easy to use WYSIWYG editor, anyone can now manage web content, regardless of their experience.

Workflows & Approvals

Solutions matched to your business processes and internal workflows

For organisations with a number or team members, CMS workflow enables our solutions to work just as you want them to.

For example, a content creator can upload a draft post which is passed to an editor for approval before going live. In larger organisations, your cms may require clearances across different departments, such as legal and compliance.

Other use cases include managing user-generated content, social media and user management for membership or subscription-based websites. If you require workflows as part of your CMS platform, we work to ensure we’ve understood the existing business processes that you might be looking to replicate online. We then seek the best cms solutions and aim to save you time and effort by streamlining workflow so that it not only just works; it makes your business work better too.

Personalisation

Tailoring the website experience in real-time

One size, of course, does not fit all. We can readily extend our CMS platform solutions so that you can appeal to your audience based on any one of many variables. For example, you may choose to tailor your homepage for customers that have already expressed an interest in a particular service. Or you may select only to feature new content that a specific user has not seen before.

We can build cms solutions that still retain the user-friendly advantages you’re looking for yet present to your customers wholly customised experiences that are just right for each use case. From personalisation by audience segment to individual experiences, you can manage personalisation with easy to use drag and drop interfaces the same way you might a new blog post – easy.

And what’s better is that personalisation is an excellent method to build longer, lasting and more loyal customer relationships—ultimately helping you increase your digital advantage.

Plenty of Advanced Features

From out of the box to bespoke custom builds we’ve got the features you need

Today, with the addition of some carefully chosen plugins, WordPress and the other CMS solutions we work with can do the vast majority of what most website owners need.

However, as you grow, and as you work to improve your online performance, you’ll find you start to look towards a more advanced feature set.
