The benefits of using Contao

As we are now using the Contao content management system (cms) for nearly every website we create, I wanted to give you a brief overview over the benefits of the system. Maybe this helps you to get a better impression of it and leads to even more people using Contao.

So what makes it that good?

Most of our customers who switched over from different content management systems were very impressed with Contao’s simplicity and easy-to-accustom ways to keep their site up-to-date. In fact we had several clients who wanted us to build them a new site just because their former cms was way too complicated to use. It is important for our clients and also ourselves to know that the system we’re using can be expanded flexibly and inexpensively. Contao is fantastic in making that possible. A great example is it’s extension catalog which offers a big database of extensions you can use on your web site. It’s biggest plus is that you can install these extensions right there, in Contao. You don’t need to download it, then upload it via FTP and then include it into your system. Contao does all that on its own.

Furthermore Contao offers a high security standard and allows us to develop search engine friendly websites which are also accessible for people with disabilities.

Is doesn’t matter whether you have a big or a small site, Contao is the optimal solution for both variants. Especially at bigger web sites it offers the possibility to work with multiple people, even simultaneously. It is no problem to manage and create new user accounts for every one of your colleges who update your site.

These and many other built-in features made Contao one of the most popular open source content management systems on the market. We are really recommending you to give it a try! Give us a call or simply drop a mail if you have any questions!
