Sometimes a little goes along way

We constantly advise clients, 'Content is King' in the world of the web. Whenever we take on a website or any kind of digital project we carefully plan how our clients can manage their content in the most efficient way.

In the last couple of years we've discovered a little gem in the shape of Perch, which is a compact CMS that competes with the big boys.

A content management systems (CMS) allows the administrator of a website the ability to manage their current, such as adding a new page or blog post. Many systems out there can be relatively complex and time consuming to install, which equates to more spend for our clients. However, sometimes it makes sense to have a stripped down version of a CMS, which is easy to install, configure and most importantly a breeze to use when updating site content.

This was a constant problem that we faced when developing smaller sites. Fortunately, we found a great solution in the form of ‘Perch’. Perch is a small, lightweight and extremely flexible CMS. It’s perfect for when our clients need to edit content without the hassle that comes with setting up a large complex CMS like Wordpress or Drupal.

Don’t let the 'small' fool you though. Perch, especially the Runway version, is very powerful and can provide a great deal of functionality for a website of any size. The simplicity of installing and configuring Perch means we can deploy a CMS driven website in a short period of time, which is perfect for both us and our clients.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss using Perch in your next project, then get in touch. If you’re interested in finding out more about our favourite little CMS or want to purchase your own licence, then why not stop by the Perch website.
