Does Your Company Need a Content Management System?

Using a CMS is one of the most straightforward ways to build and manage a website’s content. Through these platforms, you can load, edit, and manage everything from webpages, images, articles, multimedia, and virtually any other content you can think of. What’s more, you can do all that securely and easily without having to have an in-depth knowledge of web development.

All that should be enough for you to understand why your company needs a CMS, regardless of its size or industry. However, it’s also important to point out that you can unlock other benefits with a CMS, including:

    Better organization for your content
    CMS solutions boast multiple features to create, schedule, and publish content of all types. You can also use these settings to easily find and edit anything you’ve already created without much hassle.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Multiple user access
    Through a CMS you can define different roles for different users. Thus, you can determine access levels and permissions for each user from a unique place and in an easy way.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    High scalability and maintenance
    CMS platforms are easy to scale up and down, depending on your needs. You can easily add more content and users while also having the ability to change and tweak settings for superior performance.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Increased cost-efficiency
    Without a CMS, you’d have to rely on a web development team to handle all your digital content. But with a CMS, you’ll be able to manage your content yourself, even if you don’t have a lot of experience with web development.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    No in-depth knowledge of web development
    Most CMSs are very easy to learn and use, so much so that many of them offer no code features to help you build and manage your entire website without having to write a single line of code.

The main takeaway here is simple: If your company needs a website that is constantly uploading new content to engage with its target audience, then you definitely need a content management system.

How Much Does CMS Development Cost?

As it happens with virtually all software development projects, it’s virtually impossible to say how much a particular CMS development project will cost beforehand. That’s because there are multiple factors to consider that directly affect how much work the CMS engineering team will have to do to meet the requirements.

With that said, it’s important to mention that you don’t need to build your CMS from scratch, as the market is filled with affordable CMS alternatives, including:

  • WordPress
  • Wix
  • Weebly 
  • Squarespace
  • GoDaddy

Each of these companies offer off-the-shelf CMS platforms with a varying set of features. Naturally, using one of these will relieve you from having to deal with upgrades and maintenance for the system. However, adopting them might limit your customization options or may mean you’ll have to pay more to unlock those personalization settings.

CMS Customization

Given the many CMS alternatives available in the market, you might wonder why you’d pay to develop a custom CMS platform. There are several reasons why this might be the best fit for you, including the following:

  • You need to completely control the entire system so you can decide when to upgrade or change its features.
  • You want to increase the system’s overall security by using code that isn’t publicly available.
  • You aspire to customize all settings, even the most advanced ones.
  • You don’t want to end up suffering from vendor lock-in.
  • Your content needs are too complex and specific for off-the-shelf solutions.

If your requirements are included in that list, then reaching out to a custom CMS development company is a must. For instance, at BairesDev we can offer an in-depth customization process that includes:

  • Evaluation of your web content management requirements
  • Definition of best CMS features for your goals
  • Design of specific architecture compatible with your infrastructure
  • Custom implementation with your tech stack
  • Personalized UX and UI design
  • Testing of critical components on a regular schedule
  • Training of all users
  • Post-launch support and maintenance

Popular CMS vs. Custom CMS Development

Before committing to an off-the-shelf CMS solution or a custom platform, you need to analyze several factors to see which option is the best for you. Some of the things you need to consider are:

  • Ease of use
    Ready-made CMS platforms offer plenty of options to get you started and beyond. Thus, they are the best alternative for beginners. However, if you have more experience with web content management, a custom CMS can better fit your needs and expectations.
  • Available budget
    Off-the-shelf solutions tend to be more affordable at the beginning, which might be the best to get you off the ground. Yet, extending its basic features might mean paying more. Custom CMS development, on the other hand, can be a costly endeavor at first, but one that ends up being more cost-effective in the long run, as you’ll be the owner of the system and won’t have to pay to use it.
  • Scalability
    Most off-the-shelf CMS platforms are highly scalable as are the custom CMS solutions you might build. The main difference, again, is cost. While a custom CMS can be scaled however you need it (within your infrastructure’s limits), doing so in a pre-made solution will surely carry extra costs.
  • Templates
    Commercial CMS platforms come packed with free templates and themes you can use to create your own website. However, if they don’t satisfy your needs, you’ll have to go to great lengths to customize them. A custom CMS is built with your desires in mind from the get-go, which means you’ll get exactly what you want.
  • Plugins
    The most popular CMS platforms in the market have a wide range of plugins to extend the system’s functionality. You’ll have to pay for some of them, while others will be available for free. With a custom CMS, you’ll have to define the functionality when you’re building the system. Otherwise, you’ll have to bring in a development team to add the features you need once the platform is deployed.
  • Security
    All commercial CMS options have strong security protocols. However, there are open-source alternatives that can be easily analyzed by hackers in search of a way into your systems. With a custom CMS there’s no such risk: The code is proprietary and won’t be exposed, and you’ll be able to integrate all the security features you deem necessary to heighten your overall security.
