We’re active in the CMS community and eager sponsors of CMS camps. And to meet all your CMS web development needs, we offer a team of highly skilled web designers, developers, and solutions architects with expert knowledge and skill to create customized modules, features, and capabilities. Because we work with content management systems so much, we understand the complexities and difficulties of its web development and we get results.

CMS platforms that we have experience with and some notes what's behind them:

  • Drupal - Robust community support, including IRC channels and face-to-face meetups. More than 6,000 modules, making Drupal highly extensible. A large number of companies offering commercial support for Drupal. A lack of really high-quality free and commercial themes (there are some, but not nearly as many as there are for some CMSs)
  • Joomla - User authentication can be done with OpenID, Google, and LDAP, among others. More than 7000 extensions. Can be overkill for simple sites.
  • DotNetNuke - DotNetNuke (DNN) provides a suite of solutions that make designing, building and managing feature-rich sites and communities fast, easy and cost-effective.
  • Alfresco - is a free/libre enterprise content management system for Microsoft Windows and Unix-like operating systems.
  • CushyCMS - Incredibly easy for content managers to edit their content. Very easy and quick to get started. Too basic for many types of sites or particularly large sites.
  • concrete5 - Easy to convert a basic HTML site to a concrete5 site in minutes. Offer business-class hosting that includes support. Many useful and basic plugins are quite costly. Almost all of the best themes are paid.
  • Umbraco - Powerful and flexible for both websites and intranets. An open API. Primary add-ons are paid. Not really any prebuilt themes available for the front-end.
  • Magento - eCommerce software and platform trusted by the world's leading brands.
  • SilverStripe - Basic functions in the back-end are easy to perform. Designers are free to use HTML and CSS however they want to design their site. Only a little over 150 extensions/modules.
  • Contao - No restrictions on how you can design a site. Not much learning curve for content editors and authors. Good built-in modules. Because of back-end setup, it’s probably better-suited to smaller sites without dozens or hundreds of pages.
  • TextPattern - Really easy to use interface. Well suited for sites of all sizes. Fewer plugins than the more popular CMSs. Relatively few high-quality templates available.
  • WordPress - Huge developer community with plenty of documentation and tutorials available. Free and paid plugins and specialized themes make it possible to create virtually any kind of site with WordPress. User-friendly dashboard for managing content. A standard installation can have a lot of security issues, and is very vulnerable to attack without additional security measures. No official support outside of user forums, where you may or may not get an official response.
  • ExpressionEngine - Commercial support. Focus on security, with no major security breaches ever. No restrictions on how a site can be designed. Cost is high, especially for commercial sites.
