WordPress is by far the most popular content management system available and powers over 35% of all websites on the internet. As you can probably imagine that is an install base of millions of websites. WordPress is also open source and as a result is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world as it grows from strength to strength. It reaches far and wide, allowing us to tap into that strength and collective intelligence in order to arrive at better solutions more cost effectively. WordPress is also driven by a philosophy of ‘democratising the web’ and aims to provide extremely advanced CMS tools which are still extremely simple to use, perfect for most types of websites.
In essence WordPress allows us to develop extremely customisable and flexible websites to modern standards using web development and design best practices. It can help a business scale from a small one person sole trader all the way to a large corporate. All it takes is time and expertise in dealing with the software and a good business idea.
We have been using WordPress since 2007 and have built both plugins and themes for the system. To this day we find it to be the most flexible and yet still user friendly content management system available.
