Content management systems (CMS) are applications designed to allow the administrator to manage content within an online system, but without having to write code.
Normally they allow for the creation of new content as well as editing existing content. Most often, they provide the administrator with the tools to manage text, image and video content as well as links to external sources.
Some CMS's have extended tools to manage search engine optimised content, automate publishing days and times, managing who has access to what content, managing internal roles, logging access and more…
The benefits are huge
Most CMS facilities provide the owner with a wide variety of benefits which can reduce the time it takes to manage your content and therefore the cost involved.
Most importantly they provide empowerment to those individuals without web authoring skills to manage websites and systems they are installed on.
Our own CMS, Serenity Source, is no exception to these rules and provides our clients with the facilities to take control of their own websites. It is built with open source technologies, has been penetration tested to the highest standards and runs across most modern devices. Our clients using Serenity Source benefit from an intuitive user interface which allows them to control their site at any time and any location with an internet connection.
