Content Management Systems
FOX offer websites built on top of web applications called Content Management Systems (CMS). These systems allow live editing of website content by users with no knowledge of HTML or web development and without the need to install any software.
CMSs run on the same web servers hosting your website and not on your local computer, so you can use a CMS directly from your web browser without installing any additional software and you can do it away from your office. We are able to provide different levels of permissions to different users within your organisation.
The CMS systems we use at FOX are built in industrial-standard, well-tested PHP code and utilise advanced MySQL databases to ensure speed and reliability. Each is underpinned by public documentation and a developer community and are used by government agencies and large multinationals.
What can I do with a CMS?
With a CMS, you can add, edit, and remove pages on your website, edit and reorder navigation menus, add or remove images and position tables, create internal and external links and embed rich content. You can upload images and documents directly into the CMS system for use in your website.
Many CMS deployments greatly restrict the content you are able to manage on your website. FOX ensures that your CMS deployment affords you the maximum possible editing capability while also minimising the risk of you “breaking” your website.
Integration and customisation
We can customise CMS systems to add modules capable of managing news feeds, managing image and video galleries, user registration systems, document management systems, as well as integrating with existing business software or web application APIs. We can also integrate Client Relationship Management (CRM) systems and job management systems directly with your CMS. This flexibility allows your website to grow and evolve with your business and ensures that your website has the power and capability to cope with changes in your IT infrastructure.
FOX have experience with many open source content management systems including SilverStripe, WordPress, Joomla, Shopify, ZenCART. We will recommend and deploy the system that best suits your requirements when building your website.
