Content management system

Content management system

A content management system (CMS) is an easy and reliable way to create, manage and edit all types of digital media. CMS software is usually referred to as the mechanism for storing and controlling textual content across a publication or multiple publications.

With the internet becoming a major medium for many organisations to reach their audience, content management systems are the must-have tool for collating data to be entered in by staff and delivered out to the end user in a consistent and predictable fashion.

Staff using the CMS will improve their productivity by being able to work within a system that unifies how content items are stored and managed. Documents could be written directly in the system with embedded what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editors or created on a computer with familiar word processing software and uploaded to the repository before undergoing a review process by other members of staff. Changes and versions can be tracked from within the system. An overall administrator may review all versions, combine changes and publish the final version live to your web site, wiki application or similar.

Organise and categorise the information that is important to your business by employing a content management system. Move towards a paperless office by storing document that would have otherwise consumed resources and space by being stored on paper. Scan documents and images for digital storage and add textual descriptions and meta data to allow effective search and retrieval functionality. Manage the content on your web site by placing virtual pages into virtual folders; automatically generating navigational features (like nested menus and breadcrumbs) for your web site, giving your users an intuitive and foreseeable method for finding the content they are looking for. Type in HTML or use WYSIWYG tools to layout the content, add meta information for search engine optimisation (SEO) and publish content with the click of a button.
