Open-Source Content Management
What is free and open source? A means of developing an end product where the source code and licences do not keep the user tied to the original vendor. For example, we use Drupal, a free and open source content management system, to develop websites. This means there is no need to purchase special software or additional licences as your business grows. The source code is provided in a simplified format, which gives website owners freedom to choose programming and hosting vendors.
What is a content management system (CMS)? For open-source websites, this is what you use to make changes to your website - to manage the content. Use it to update an online store, add new blog entries or provide information about the products your company produces.
How can open source content management work for my company? Here's an example. We take your ideas or the design for a new site and create it with open-source software such as Drupal. We set it up so you can log in and edit all of the content on the site, from items in your store to news updates to services your company offers. We install modules which automate content updates, such as social media posts, providing the most up-to-date information for your customers and more time for you to focus on your business.
Your business is dynamic, and your website should be too.
