Share Article

SAMSA, an information technology solution provider and website design firm headquartered in Saginaw, Michigan has launched a completely new corporate website utilizing the WordPress content management system. The website (http://www.samsa.com) is hosted at SAMSA's own hosting facility in Saginaw, Michigan.

Michael Stackhouse, SAMSA's President states 'Our former website served our needs for several years, however as our company developed new solutions to address changing customer needs in recent years, our website suffered from website sprawl - it was time for a fresh look. Our development budget and timeframe were limited so we decided to use WordPress, which has served us well in several other website projects this past year.'

Hillary Norfleet, Web Department Manager at SAMSA states 'We made the corporate decision more than a year ago to select WordPress as SAMSA's CMS platform of choice. After completing several successful projects for clients, we decided that it was time to use WordPress as the basis for SAMSA's own new website.' She adds, 'Philosophically speaking, we believe that making use of good open source platforms and projects like WordPress is a good solution for the majority of websites we are hired for. WordPress is well written, and is consistently updated by hundreds of programmers around the globe.'

Hillary says 'Using a pre-written website platform like this allows SAMSA web developers to focus on the unique needs of our individual customers, rather than spending time writing and debugging code that is really common to most websites. WordPress allows us to create and maintain website projects much more quickly and efficiently than creating each website from scratch.'

Mr. Stackhouse adds 'We are very excited about using WordPress for our website projects. Spending less time writing and debugging underlying utilities means we can provide even more value to our customers, in less time and for fewer dollars. Another nice feature of WordPress is the way it allows our customers to independently maintain their websites, without requiring web development expertise. Customers can add and maintain frequently changing content such as company newsletters, blogs, or time sensitive content at any time of day or night without needing to notify or pay us. WordPress lets us focus on adding real value to our customer relationships.'
