What is a Content Management System (CMS)?

As Twin Cities businesses continue to embrace the digital age, more and more companies are working to refresh and upgrade their current sites, or even develop new ones. Building out a website is a time-consuming, tricky process, but there are tools and systems available to make your web project easier. We refer to these tools as content management systems.

A content management system (CMS) is a web application that allows site access to the end user and is used to manage and control a large, dynamic collection of web material (HTML documents and their associated images). A solid content management system allows for website and content creation, edits, secure control, and basic site maintenance functions in a multi-user, collaborative environment. The most popular system to date is WordPress.

Content management software offers a platform that allows users to maintain and update their own site without the assistance of a professional web design company. These systems were designed to be extremely user-friendly, so that an individual with limited experience could easily adjust or delete content from a site with calling in the experts. Businesses in Minneapolis and beyond can utilize content management software to ensure a unified look on their site and reduce coding time for on-side developers.

As updated information becomes a more urgent requirement for companies, it is critical for companies to be able to communicate important information very quickly through their site. Content management systems make this possible. The user just logs into a simple interface, makes appropriate changes and hits a publish button. It’s as easy as that. This level of interactivity not only alleviates costs, but also allows websites to convey important information almost instantly.
