Some of the benefits of Content Management Systems (CMS
BCS Web Design located on Castlereagh Street, Belfast has offered CMS systems to all clients for the last 3 – 4 years. We have found this to be a necessity as clients like to be able to make changes to text or remove content quickly. Any content management system should allow you to login from any computer at any time and any changes that you make are live immediately after you save it. We will always provide training on how to update your own website and also supply step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
Easy for people of all types of technical ability:
The most commonly used open-source (free) content management system is wordpress. This system has a good range of templates and is easily customisable by BCS to meet our clients requirements. The back-end (admin) section of the website has an easy to use editor screen that is familiar to people with a basic knowledge of Microsoft word. It has tool tips on all the different toolbar buttons (if you hover over the options it will tell you what they are called).
Multiple people can update and contribute to your website:
We can setup multiple user logins for people to update and restrict different users to what they can update or change on your website. Therefore, you can have 5 members of staff with their own logins who can update/add to your blog or news page and some staff who only have access to make changes to products on your online store.
24/7/365 and immediate publication:
WordPress is an excellent CMS that allows you to access the back end of the site from any computer with an internet connection without any investment in software. When you login and make changes to any section of your website and click on publish the changes are immediately live on your website. Excellent for price changes, special offers, news, etc.
Keep your site up to date:
A major ranking factor with search engines is adding or making changes to your site on a regular basis. This is why you see a lot of sites with blogs! Anyone who adds new content to their site will rank higher than someone who does not update their website.
Reduce the reliance on your web designer to make changes to your site:
By maintaining the vast majority of your own site it will reduce the maintenance costs or updating costs associated with paying your web designer to make changes to your website.
