Why clients are choosing SilverStripe.
Nearly all of our clients, big and small are now choosing SilverStripe.
Let’s start with what is it?
SilverStripe is a content management system which allows you to update and manage your website on a regular basis. It’s open-source software so there are no licence fees. Also, because it's open-source, you can take your website to any other SilverStripe developer - you're not tied to anyone.
What we do is take the latest version of SilverStripe and then customise it to your requirements. This means, if you dream up an idea that will help your business, we can build it for you.
So, getting back to why people are choosing SilverStripe over WordPress, Drupal, Joomla…
Five reasons Silverstripe will work well for you and your website:
It’s very flexible and customisable to your requirements.
This is for both the look and feel of your website as well as the admin. We have not yet come across a client request that we couldn’t do!
We can also easily design and build great mobile experiences for your customers.
We are seeing the percentage of mobile visitors continue to grow at a rapid rate. Some websites are seeing a 10-15% increase of mobile users each year!
It’s easy for you and your staff to use.
It has a simple drag and drop functionality for ordination content and even uploading images. The other nice feature is it has a draft version of your website - so you can get it all looking right before you publish your content to the world. Even with zero training, we’ve had clients login and remove a staff member or update a profile.
It offers a mature document management plugin.
You can simply replace the document and it manages all other connected pages. You can even roll-back to an old one if you made a mistake. Document management is also just one of the many plugins.
The other big one is security.
SilverStripe is a very reliable and stable platform. Part of the reason it’s more secure is it’s relatively small in a global sense - so less incentive for hackers.
We have been working with SilverStripe now since 2008 and have a team of experienced SilverStripe developers.
