What is a CMS?

CMS stands for Content Management software. simply put a CMS is the software a website is built in to allow users to edit and manage digital content. In Essence, a CMS allows content editors to administrate content on their site, and pages, images and data. 

Not all CMS’s are built equal

We have been using MODX as our primary CMS for over 8 years now - and it has brought huge benefits to our clients, and will continue to do so. 

MODX is an open source CMS. In fact it is more than a pure CMS, it is more of a content management framework, that is flexible and powerful to build websites and applications far beyond basic sites. 

As a website user, the CMS your website is built in is crucial - being able to easily manage your content in the way that works for your website is key to having a successful well managed site. We are more than happy to talk to you about why we champion MODX as our favourite CMS.
