Craft CMS

Craft CMS

Craft CMS is our ‘Wordpress alternative’ to creating custom, high-value websites for small to medium size projects. We choose Craft over Wordpress as it's a popular, open-source content management system that caters nicely to every pillar of a website -  content management, design, and development. The clean and simple dashboard makes it easy for clients to take full control of their content editing needs on the back-end. Craft is not based on templates, which is ideal for designers who work closely with brands wanting to look unique from their competitors online. For developers, Craft offers powerful tools that speed up the development process and enable the flexibility savvy businesses require in the long run. 


The benefits of Craft CMS:
+ Easily manage site-wide content in-house
+ Loads of native features vs 3rd party plugins
+ Built-in Google Analytics dashboard
+ Less maintenance overtime
+ More secure
+ Easily extended features as business
   requirements evolve
