Whitebox Digital has solved this by providing a content management technology that can be integrated into and wrap around any website design – enabling our clients to maintain their content day-to-day without the need for any further technical involvement.
Our content management system is supported by a team of developers and also very easy to pick up, we have clients with limited IT experience using the system.
We also provide full training on how to used the Content management system and Whitebox Digital will provide ongoing support should any problems or questions arise.
A lot of talk these days is about the relative merits of a proprietary CMS system as opposed to an open source CMS system.
Here are a few reasons as to why we recommend using our proprietary Content management system:
1) With a proprietary system such as ours, you get the guaranteed ongoing support from us 24x7 (365 days a year), our support is always there.
2) When using an open source system, you would tend to get an expert in (an individual) who knows how to set up a site with a particular open source system. Generally there are still many ways that you can set up that website, and only that developer will know exactly what has been done. Generally that developer is also a freelancer and you have no guarantee that after the website is built that they will be around (e.g. they might have gone off backpacking, or might get a permanent job) and then they can no longer support the site, plus you have to get someone new in who is prepared to continue working with another developers code and no developers like working with another developers code.
3) Any developer that works with an open source platform, is never going to know the Content management system as well as a company with a proprietary system that they have built themselves from scratch.
4) An open source system cannot be as flexible, given the proprietary system can be fundamentally altered by the company who has developed it (if needed) whereas there will always be restrictions in how much an open source system can be altered.
5) Lastly, there are so many open source systems out there, you cannot possibly know which open source systems will stand the test of time, there are many that come and go, so you have no guarantee that the platform itself will even continue to be developed, and the moment that stops then no freelancers will continue to support it.
