Open Source CMS Development
Content Management Systems (CMS) have enabled companies to have true control over their website content. We use two of the latest CMS tools for our website development. Our philosophy focuses on providing our clients control and ownership over their website. For this reason we use open source solutions: MODX for standard development and Magento for e-commerce sites. As opposed to developing a proprietary platform, we feel that open source provides clients with the flexibility that they are paying for.
When choosing our CMS platforms we researched with two main criteria:
- The platforms had to provide all of the functionality with the site features and ease of content management
- The platforms had to be search engine friendly
Currently we are building sites wtih MODx Revolution, which is the latest release and customers enjoy an easy-to-use "back end" which allows for them to update and add content. Revolution provides our development team with many of the add-on features that customers are asking for these days such as blogs, latest news features, photo galleries, social media integration, and intuitive interface for our search marketing team to use while optimizing the sites.

For e-commerce, Magento provides all of the features shopping carts would need to provide plus much more. Because of the growth in Magento sites, the development community has grown providing many new features and "plugins" to be applied. Again, the search engine friendliness of Magento is very apparent in the sites we have launched. Our search team enjoys the ease of use and the clients love the results they are getting... higher rankings and more sales/opportunities.
Benefits of Open Source CMS Development:
- Ease of content management

- Easier to “grow” your site over time with page creation
