If you’ve read anything at all about Content Management Systems (CMS), you’ll probably know that CMS are the most effective way to keep your site relevant to your audience. You also know at least three other things:
- Keeping your site relevant and up-to-date can be time consuming
- CMS can be complicated
- Portals can be expensive
I’m set to change all that.
Joomla open-source CMS solutions are different from the normal models for portal software. For a start, they are not complicated. They are developed with non-technical business users in mind, for reliability and ease of use. Our solutions don’t require the user or administrator of the system to know HTML.
I can configure CMS for any level of website. From a simple site with several static pages that are easily edited by non-technical net newbies, to a full-blown corporate site with document management, internal calendars, bulletin boards and multiple templates tailored to company colors and logos… we are your affordable, local experts.

Why Open Source?
- Wide development community, professional components and plugins
- Your site is portable: it is not tied to our system… it can be moved to any Linux | Apache | MySQL | PHP (LAMP) webserver or hosting company.
- Scalable: if your site outgrows a lesser hosting plan, upgrade to a more powerful plan, a dedicated server, or a Content Delivery Network
