Product overview

the problem

Using the Drupal open-source CMS means that you need to proactively perform patches and security updates to get the latest version. The demands and wishes for a CMS keep evolving with technology, this means a CMS can easily get outdated.

the solution

Our CMS is easier to to use. We perform security patches and updates on the platform (so all the websites are up to date). Clients have a saying in what they want to add or improve on the CMS. Everything that's developed can be used by other clients.
