The Web Made Easy: CMS

Top Three Reasons to Use the CMS

  • It'll save you money.
    No more need for Adobe Dreamweaver. No more making your staff learn new skills to maintain a Web site. Let your unit do what they do best. For most of the world, that's not Web development. 
  • It'll save you time.
    No more waiting for the one person who knows how to update the Web site when you need to fix a date or a typo. Now anyone you want can update your site. 
  • It'll save you legal headaches.
    Many people don't realize it, but all University sites need to meet accessibility standards. If you don't meet them, you could be slapped with a law suit. If you use the CMS, we've taken care of the most important accessibility issues so you don't have to.

You mean it doesn't need to stress us out?

If you're here, then we're guessing you like the idea of cutting back on your Web-related time, stress and expenses. Meet our Content Management System (CMS).

A CMS is a user-friendly Web development system that you operate using an ordinary Web browser. The beauty of a CMS is that it allows people to edit, update and maintain their Web sites without being trained Web developers. You don't need to know HTML or any fancy programming languages. This is as easy as the Web gets.

The University's Web sites are gradually being transitioned into a CMS. This site you're looking at right now is running in the CMS. Doesn't look any different, does it? The difference is all behind the scenes. This Web page is as robust as any we've ever used before, but now it's also really easy to maintain.

Does this sound like something you want to be a part of? Then have your division leader contact our executive director, Thomas White, about making the switch. You won't regret it.
