Why a custom CMS might be the best solution
In previous blogs, we discussed the various systems for managing the backend of websites, i.e. CMS solutions. Premium and free versions, each of which have their own specific advantages and disadvantages.
These systems are fine for entrepreneurs with a limited budget or those who do not have any specific needs or wishes when it comes to their (online) business.
Limitations of a standard CMS
A standard CMS definitely does limit your options when it comes to any specific functionalities you may require, and even when it is possible to make modifications you will have to pay handsomely for them, only to run into further limitations at a later stage. This makes the management of your website unnecessarily complex, error prone and unclear. With lots of updates that shorten the life of your website. In short, a lot of frustration and high costs.
The solution: a custom CMS.
How does a custom CMS work?
In the case of a custom CMS – as the name suggests – you get a unique system that is built in accordance with your specific needs and wishes. This ensures a system that is:
✔ easy to use
Unlike in the case of a standard solution, the developer has more freedom to tailor the system to your needs. That creates opportunities! The needs of your company are discussed with you and everything is made as easy as possible for you. This does not only ensure that you can work much faster, but also that you can outsource much more work to staff, so that you can get on with other things.
Invest in custom CMS
A custom CMS is a premium option. However when you consider that the one-off investment is dwarfed by the extra costs you incur when growing or adapting advanced services, modules or options on your website it is an easy decision to make. You can save a lot of time, energy and money with a custom CMS.
Besides efficiency, a custom CMS is also the safest way to start a website because the source code cannot be seen or modified by anyone other than the developer. In the unlikely event of any technical issues, the developer will solve them efficiently.
