A content management system (CMS) is vital to the success of almost every website and intranet, and yet many companies are not familiar with this technology and the benefits it could provide.
A CMS supports the creation, management, distribution, publishing, and discovery of corporate information. It covers the complete lifecycle of the pages on your site, from providing simple tools to create and edit the content, through to publishing, and finally to archiving. It also provides the ability to manage the structure of the site, the appearance of the published pages, and the navigation provided to the users.
There are a wide range of business benefits that can be obtained by implementing a CMS, including:
- faster turnaround time for new pages and changes
- greater consistency
- improved site navigation
- increased site flexibility
- increased security
- greater capacity for growth
- no site maintenance costs
- create users with different access levels
- scheduled publishing for posts and pages
Beyond these, the greatest benefit the CMS can provide is to support your business goals and strategies.
For example, the CMS can help to improve sales, increase user satisfaction, or assist in communicating with the public.
