When an agency tells you they have their own custom CMS for your website, this means two thing; lack of robust, varied testing due to a limited client base and tying you in to them for as long as possible since it makes it impossible to leave without re-building your entire website.
As such, we will never do this, we do not want to trap you here, because we know you will want to stay with us anyway.
Our preference by a long way. Open source, modern code base for todays online world, 100% flexible and simple to use - you will find it easy to edit every aspect of your content, gives us the power to build absolutely anything. As well as all that it is very secure and fast too.
Wordpress is great, the most widely used CMS platform out there. It can be quick and simple to set up and has a lot of 3rd party addons ready to go, ideal for fast and cheaper set ups.
All singing, all dancing e-commerce platform with a one-off license fee. As powerful as Magento, as easy to use as Shopify, and comes with more features than both - including a Multi Vendor version for marketplaces.
Built on top of Wordpress we can easily plug this in to your existing website, or if you are after a more simple e-commerce solution with a smaller upfront cost then this could work. It also benefits from being attached to the Wordpress CMS for more content rich e-commerce.
