Content Management Systems
We define a content management system (CMS) as a computer application that allows you to control and modify all the content on a website. A well done CMS allows you to access and edit all of the menus, videos, photos, and text throughout the entire website.
What are the advantages of having a Content Management System?
IT SAVES YOU MONEY!
Since you are able to make edits on the website yourself, there is no need to pay us, or any other website company to make updates and edits to your website. How great is that?
IT SAVES YOU TIME!
There is no need to put together an email or make a phone call to give an explanation for a change that you would like to implement on your website. All you have to do is simply log in to your website, and make the change. Many text changes to a website can take less time than it would for you to type out and send an email.
What Content Management System does BenchMark use?
We have been developing our CMS sites exclusively with WordPress since 2009. We believe that is the most user-friendly, with tons of documentation and resources available online for clients to easily access online.
What Makes Your CMS sites Unique from Other Companies?
OUR CMS SITES ARE 100% CUSTOM
We build our WordPress sites from what is referred to as a “naked” theme. Which means, it is 100% custom. Most website development firms build their WordPress sites for themes. Since these themes are essentially templates, they tend to be bulkier with code, slower to load, and not customized for the user on the back end.
OUR BACK END IS EXTREMELY USER-FRIENDLY
We used Advanced Custom Fields for all the content on your website. Which includes logos, text, and videos. This means you have access to your ENTIRE website, in addition, ACF makes the back end user-friendly user friendly of any wordpress sites that we have seen. (and we have seen a lot of them throughout the years!)
TRAINING IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR WEBSITE PURCHASE
There is no additional charge for you to learn the back end of your website. Over the years we have done hundreds of training sessions. Sessions are typically done over the internet and can take anywhere from 30 minutes, up to an hour or two. Training times are dependant on how much you want to learn.
You don’t need any software installed on your computer or device!
If you have a device that can access the internet, and an internet connection, then you are ready to edit. No software or downloads needed!
