Content Management Systems (CMS)

Content Management Systems are essential for developing not only very large websites, but even smaller dynamic sites such as blogs. Modern content management tools (such as Drupal and Wordpress) recently evolved in the Open Source community have proven to be robust, secure and scalable.  They provide the site owner with a huge array of exciting tools and plug-in modules enabling them to deliver a seamless and rich user experience, without the expense and risk of undertaking primary software development.

We work primarily with Drupal and WordPress as well as being skilled at creating bespoke content management systems or using systems such as Joomla, Ning & Blogger where necessary. Our consultative approach will make sure you pick the right CMS to use, depending on your specific requirements. Our supporting services ensure the tools will always be up to date, and your data and content will be securely backed up. As you develop your website, we can help you grow the capabilities of your CMS in step with the goals of your business online. We take your whole web presence into account and ensure that all factors such as getting better SEO, user friendly editing tools, secure user account management and many other factors are taken into consideration.

Of the CMS systems available we favour Drupal as it provides a higher degree of flexibility and scalability than most. We have proven expertise in developing sites in Drupal from a simple business 'brochure' sites through to complex sites managing relational data or supporting e-commerce. Using Drupal enables us to hit the ground running and get fully featured sites up very quickly.  We develop off line in a secure testing environment and then provide you with secure access to a staging site for you to review the site prior to going live.


Case Study: History of Parliament website (Drupal)


Case studies

We were engaged to develop an online e-commerce solution for a network of highly successful high street pharmacies in London and across the UK. We were tasked with the design and building of the YourPharmacy brand through the design and creation of an online e-commerce store.

We were engaged by the History of Parliament Trust to work on their flagship website that publishes the results of research into the members and constituencies of all British parliaments since 1386.

We were engaged to create a socially linked ecommerce site for a new brand range of Dickies clothing - Dickies Streetwear. The brief called for a high performance state of the art site that engaged a growing customer base in the streetwear market. So rather than create a run of the mill ecommerce catalogue site we wanted to create a rich user experience based around news and social media with purchasing opportunities presented across the site.
