What Content Management System (CMS) do we advocate for website development?
WordPress CMS is a significant leader in website development. ThinkDivision typically encourages clients to stick with industry benchmarks. ThinkDivision will provide all the same services if the current website is built on an existing CMS the client is comfortable with.
Does a CMS allow for flexible updates?
Your website will be designed to be as easy to use as possible. Posting new content to the website will be hassle free. If you can do basic edits to a Microsoft Word document, you have the skills already to edit posts and pages designed on top of the WordPress platform.
Will the CMS allow for the management of the media gallery and library?
The WordPress Media Library Screen allows you to edit, view, and delete Media previously uploaded to your blog. Multiple Media objects can be selected for deletion. Search and filtering ability is also provided to allow you to find the desired Media.
Is the CMS compatible with all major browsers and operating systems?
The system is compatible with all major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE) and operating system (MS Windows, Mac OSX, Linux).
Can the website be hosted at the clients site?
ThinkDivision can comply with this request although its not recommended. In addition local hosting typically incurs additional hardware and associated personnel costs.
Will the website support a fresh and user-centric design?
WordPress is created with the end-user in mind. With many statistics and measuring tools, administrators can monitor their users behaviour and adjust the website experience accordingly. ThinkDivision works with ‘Responsive’ designs, which means the website(s) will provides a full experience on all platforms.
Will the website be scalable and allow for growth?
WordPress is an open source platform, meaning the codes are open to everybody to use and customise. WordPress belongs to the largest CMS community for website development. Developers use WordPress to create their own tools, such as templates, themes and plug-ins to share for free, or sell to the WordPress community.
