Any online business starts with a content management system (CMS). This is a special software that allows a dedicated team to publish, edit, change and upgrade information on a website. Simply put, CMS is a tool to build an online shop, create its visual look and manage content.
Benefits of a CMS:
Most CMS programs include web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search and retrieval. By the nature of a CMS, the program supports the separation of content and presentation. CMSs are capable of creating and editing content, and allow you to administer users and assign different permissions to each.
One major advantage of a CMS is its collaborative nature. Multiple users can log on and contribute, schedule or edit content to be published. Because the interface is usually browser-based, a CMS can be accessed from anywhere by any number of users.
A CMS enables a website to control and create their content effectively and efficiently.
Selective Access Permissions
Every user can have selective access permissions based on their roles, such as author, editor, contributor, administrator, etc. You can choose to allow some users to add and edit their own content while giving others universal access. This helps to maintain security since contributors can have restricted access.
Site updates are quick and effortless when using a CMS. Even when using the administrative interface, components like menus, headers, footers and sidebars can be easily (and quickly) updated.
In that case, you only need to pay more for further customization options, such as a premium design or extra security.
