Content Management Systems, what is this?

If you ask this question to Google this is the answer you get: A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that supports the creation and modification of digital content using a simple interface to abstract away low-level details unless required, usually supporting multiple users working in a collaborative environment. CMS features vary widely.

Personally, I struggle to understand this definition myself, as a non technical person what does this really mean?

Simply put:

A Content Management System (CMS) is a piece of software that is web based and allows non-technical people to manage day-to-day content updates on the companies website. This can include tasks like:

  • Updating the text on web pages
  • Adding or changing photos and videos
  • Adding/deleting products
  • Posting press releases
  • Updating properties
  • Writing blogs/news
  • Posting and managing events
  • The list can be endless…

A CMS puts your team members in control from the marketing team through to the CEO. Tasks that would have taken days or weeks under the old-fashioned website site model can now be accomplished in a few minutes using a CMS.

A CMS will allow anyone with basic computer skills to be a website administrator/manager, putting your business in a powerful position. An example of a CMS website that we have just completed is Costalets
