The Joys of Joomla

Ever keen to embrace new software and technological developments, the Stockdale Martin team (and in particular our intrepid Creative Director André and new Design Studio addition Robert) have recently added to their skillset a working knowledge of Joomla 1.5, the most popular version of an open-access content management system that’s already revolutionising the way we organise our work.

Key advantages of the system include:

  • Its template design system, which makes it robust and flexible to develop
  • Its open source format- this keeps the cost of development down, and means that the package and any extensions are usually free or cheap.
  • Its ongoing development- because Joomla is open source, its users are continually developing and reworking its source code, which means that the system is constantly being updated and refined by those familiar with its uses and capabilities.

We particularly recommend Joomla to organisations with smaller budgets: small local businesses often lack the time and the resources to develop bespoke websites for themselves and their customers, yet often still want or need hands-on access to website content. A site developed using Joomla can offer smaller businesses the means to generate and maintain web content to a high standard- while keeping costs relatively low.

If you’re in the market for a content management system, and especially if you’re working to a tight budget, why not drop us a line to find out how Joomla can work for your business? Who knows- like us, you may never look back!

Have your say!
