Suffice to say: we know what makes a great brochure site. A SwankyApple made Brochure site provides rapid, easy access to relevant info for potential clients, impresses with compelling, relevant design and is easy to maintain and grow.

WordPress and Concrete 5 Portfolio

Want to find out more before chatting? Here are some slightly more techie details about WordPress and Concrete 5 including details of how and why we use them to achieve your goals…

wordpress_logoWordPress is a highly adaptable, easy to use platform which is very popular amongst enterprises of all sizes. Originally created as a blog publishing application in 2003 it has now become the web’s most popular Content Management System (CMS) powering over 12% of the internet’s top one million websites. A highly customisable code base and the ability for organisations to easily manage content without developer interference makes a WordPress website both cost-effective, responsive, and highly functional. WordPress can easily be applied to complex solutions as well as more basic promotional websites.

Using an industry-leading open source framework eliminates the ‘lock-in’ caused by developers building your brochure site around their own custom content management systems. Being stuck with a system which only one team can support can lead to spiralling costs, pressure sales and poor customer service. We don’t need that – you don’t need that.

Here’s what you can expect from a SwankyApple WordPress website:

  • Highly adaptable, feature rich and great looking
  • Easy self-management and familiar user interface
  • Ability to add new pages, links, images, video and written content at will
  • Ease of integrating new features to the existing site
  • No unfair ‘lock-in’ to a proprietary CMS forcing you to use us even if our prices go up or service sucks.

concrete5-logoConcrete 5 is an open source CMS (content management system) build from scratch to offer simple, intuitive site management for end users but also the flexibility for us (your developer) to create just about any website type. It’s a little more complex and time-intensive to build on than WordPress, but offers a more robust solution for large or complex websites or sites with unusual feature sets.

We’ll set up your Concrete 5 so that you can navigate to any page in your site, and an editing toolbar gives you all the controls you need to update the content on that page. No intimidating manuals, no complicated administration interfaces – just point and click. This makes it great for medium or large organisations who have specific, complex technical needs and require frequent, large content updates, but limited human resources to manage the site.

Here’s what you can expect from a SwankyApple Concrete 5 website:

  • Extremely easy to manage, but powerful and adaptable
  • Grows and evolves with your organisation
  • Fast, secure and stable for users and staff
  • Any design or technical requirement you can dream up
  • No unfair ‘lock-in’ to a proprietary CMS forcing you to use us even if our prices go up or service sucks
