The CMS caters for intranet functionality amongst a wide range of website management options
(PRWEB) May 28, 2008
After two years of intensive product development, online agency iLogic, and content management gurus GigaCMS, have partnered to offer South Africa a new, ultimately flexible environment for local businesses seeking scaleable, affordable content management.
The partnership, announced this week, cuts straight into the divide between large scale, costly web development agencies and the limitations of smaller content management agencies. But there's more - the product also fills the space for intranet and extranet requirements.
Effective website content management is now as easy as 'copy and paste' for businesses who want to expand their online presence. GigaCMS, is offering companies and other organisations a way to improve the functionality of website content through a powerful and advanced content management system that is not only highly practical and user-friendly, but also cost-effective.
Says Yoav Tchelet, Managing Director of iLogic and co-developer of GigaCMS, "For us it's about seeing more companies on the web. Competitors are expensive, their products cumbersome to develop, and require teams to make it happen, but the majority of businesses don't have teams of developers and don't want to pay for them. We give them the power to update content and design - it's a copy and paste environment."
He adds, "We know all about it. We have been working on a multitude of platforms for years providing content management to a wealth of companies. But different size enterprises have different needs. It just hasn't worked efficiently. Up until now."
The user-friendly and flexible system can be extended to massive intranet systems such as tertiary institution's information systems that require students and lecturers alike to access information from one source. "The CMS caters for intranet functionality amongst a wide range of website management options," adds Tchelet.
Offering a vast range of services, amongst which are website construction, intranets, e-commerce sites, community and personal sites, online magazines, government and education sites, the company fills the gap between high-end businesses that can afford the cost of website development and smaller businesses that would benefit from website coverage, but are limited by high development and maintenance costs.
"The whole point was to develop a content management system that is self-manageable. The online environment enables South African businesses to compete more effectively by reaching a global audience, improving interactivity with this audience and thereby lifting the profile of that business," Tchelet finishes. Where before, online was the territory of large corporations, it is now an area where small businesses are able to move freely and easily with the help of a content management system like GigaCMS.
