Content Management Systems (CMS) are websites that allow the client to manage and make changes to the website on their own. So for instance if the owner of a photography company wishes to run a promotion they can log into there website and add promotional information without having to contact the web site developers to add the content for them.
Typically in the short term the costs to create the website are more expensive than with a normal static website development but in the long term the costs are far less as the client has the tools to make changes to the website whenever they want and quickly.
CMS systems tend to also come with many modules that can be made use of, for instance, the client will have immediate availability to customer polls, gallery modules, blogs, announcements, feedback forms and many more.
We typically offer our clients CMS systems making use of open source software called DOTNETNUKE.
A typical CMS website starts from R 10 000 once off for the website design, setup and installation and R 300 per month for the website hosting. Our rate per hour for CMS website design and development is R 400 per hour.
We are also able to offer custom CMS systems should a client wish to have proprietary software made as their own CMS system, in addition we can create custom modules for DOTNETNUKE like payment gateways, SMS and mms modules for instance.
Finally we are able to integrate your companies existing web systems into the CMS system, we can also develop your companies new custom web development software into the CMS system so that your website and CMS system are all integrated as one system that the client can interact with at any time of the day anywhere in the world.
At a rate of R 400 per hour we can convert any static website to a CMS based website, a normal conversion for an small to medium website (5 - 20 pages) will cost approximately R 3000 to R 10 000.
