To begin, you’re breaking the abstraction that the particular CMS in question has been built for. In other words, you’re spending time, resources and money to make a round peg fit in a square hole. You have the façade of extensibility (“It’s built on Drupal! You can use plug-ins!”), but in reality most of the time you are left with a site that’s very brittle in terms of architecture and that looks something like Frankenstein’s monster in the back-end. A custom CMS allows you to build a site that is matched for YOUR business, YOUR workflow and YOUR needs — not the needs that others think are important.
We build websites that offers much higher performance, integration and extensibility than a pre-packaged CMS could offer out-of-the-box. We build websites that are specific to your business and give you the throughput and customization you need to give your users content-rich and relevant results with a superior user experience. None of this would be possible in Drupal or Wordpress without significant development resources. And, it should be said, a lot of the development time we propose isn’t spent re-inventing things that have already been developed. For example, in any CMS we build, we are not going to create our own WYSIWYG editor. We recognize there are workable solutions for units of work within the application out there that save development time and money and work just as well or better than we could create within the project scope. Our base engine that we build all our sites on has been tested, optimized and battle-tested in high-traffic sites.
We’re going to spend less time working within the constraints of a system that doesn't fit your business needs and spend more time creating something that allows you to differentiate yourself from every other site out there.
The most interesting part of all this? We are experts at a lot of pre-built CMS products. We love Drupal. We love Wordpress. We love Magento. We also love presenting the solution we feel is best for our clients and working with them to get them what they need. So, if all you need is functionality that Drupal offers with some custom design and hardcore SEO work, we can do that and have the needed experience. If you need something more high-performance, custom, good-looking and exciting like we proposed, we can do that too.
At the end of the day, both of these solutions require development and design. Our design, SEO and development skills are superior to most agencies in the country and a lot of big brands have spoken already in favor of us. We know what we're doing. We've executed successfully in the past. We're here to take your brand and elevate it to the position it deserves at the top.
