UPDATES? EASY AS
edit your own content with our simple cms

We don't think you should need our permission to update your website. That's why we'll set you up with your very own Content Management System (CMS).

Then you can perform any future updates yourself!

  • SAVE TIME: Static websites need to be updated by your web designer via manual coding - and their workflow schedule might not always meet your deadlines. With a CMS you can do it yourself, instantly!
  • SAVE MONEY: Web designers charge for updates. Do it yourself and save on ongoing costs. Plus with a CMS subscription you get automatic ongoing upgrades. There is no need to pay for or install new versions of the software – we do it all for you; all you need to manage is the website content.
  • KEEP YOUR CONTENT RELEVANT: Having fresh, up-to-date content encourages repeat visits, improves user experience and speaks volumes about your business.
  • GET INSTANT HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT: Our support team will quickly diagnose and resolve any website problems you might be experiencing.

The CMS platform that we choose to build your website on will be dependent on your needs. Due to the inherent support built right into Orbit CMS this is out preferred platform, however we also develop on open-source platforms such as WordPress, Drupal, Magento and Silverstripe if Open Source development is a requirement or if we feel that one of these platforms is the best fit for your needs.

Orbit CMS Modules

When it comes to content management we know there’s no such thing as a one size fits all solution. That’s why we’ve developed Orbit as a modular content management system - simply start with a base Orbit CMS installation and then add extra functionality as you require through our extensive selection of modules.

Adopting a modular approach allows us to scope a project according to your specific requirements, providing you with the exact level of functionality you require and ensuring you only pay for the functionality you need.

Modules are used to extend the core installation of Orbit to produce professional websites of varying complexity, from simple brochure sites to blogs and complex e-commerce portals. Plus, with a dedicated focus on development we are constantly creating new modules to meet client requirements and take advantage of the latest advances in web technology.

Orbit's modules are available in two categories - Standard modules and Advanced modules. As part of your base Orbit installation you'll receive all Standard modules of your choice free of charge*. Advanced modules are available for purchase according to your requirements.

For full details of all modules currently offered in Orbit take a look at our Standard modules and Advanced modules.

*We charge a small fee to integrate the Standard modules into your website.

When the user clicks the 'Like' button on your site, a story appears in the user's friends' News Feed along with a link back to your website. This module also makes it possible for Twitter users to choose to 'follow' you on Twitter directly from your website by clicking the Twitter 'follow' button.

Blog Module

The Blog module offers you all the flexibility and functionality of a typical online blog tool, making it easy for a site administrator to post conversational content and interact with an online audience.

Visitors can add items to their shopping cart as they browse through your products and can review and amend cart contents and quantities at any time prior to checkout.

Administrators can easily upload product related images directly from their PC and have them automatically compressed, resized and cropped to fit predefined display dimensions.

When orders are submitted for processing, the purchase details can either be stored in the database for offline processing or integrated with a secure payments gateway to enable secure online payments in real-time. We recommend Direct Payment Solutions (DPS) as one of the most trusted providers of robust electronic payment solutions and as such we include DPS payment gateway integration as standard with our e-Commerce module. We are also happy to scope and quote for other electronic payments providers as required.

Our ecommerce module comes complete with a Secure Server (SSL) Certificate, which complies with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

FAQ

  • What is a Content Managment System?
    • A Content Management System (CMS) is a tool that lets you easily manage your website's content, putting the control in your hands. Update your site from anywhere in the world, whenever you decide, at no additional cost.
  • Do you provide automatic CMS upgrades?
    • Yes we do. You'll benefit from regular updates to Orbit (our own CMS) as we add new features and functionality. You won’t have to pay for or install new versions of the software – it’s all included as part of your CMS hosting plan. You’ll never have to pay to upgrade Orbit because we push out updates to all users in real time after they are tested and approved for rollout. This means you won’t experience any website disruption during upgrades and will benefit from a lower lifetime cost of ownership.

      We update WordPress sites on a weekly basis for version updates to the core, and any themes and plugins. Before applying any updates we always make a backup - just in case. Because we don’t write these updates we can’t guarantee their compatibility but we always check a site following an upgrade and can roll back should anything break.

      For other Open Source Platforms (Joomla, Magento, Silverstripe etc), we will contact you and quote to implement any security updates. Any version updates would generally be completed as a part of a redevelopment due to the prohibitive cost of regression testing for these platforms.
  • Can I see how many people have been visiting my website?
    • The CMS we build your site on integrates directly to Google Analytics from within the user interface.
  • I already have a web host. Can you install your CMS on my server?
    • No we can't. Your website must be hosted on our servers which are preconfigured with all necessary security permissions and supporting libraries. To deliver the high levels of functionality and security that we offer, the software needs to be installed on an optimised hosting environment with server root access. This level of access and management is rare in the industry and we are only able to offer it to our clients through our close management of the hosting environment and all software running on it. 
  • Will my website be secure?
    • All of or sites are built with security in mind. Whether you are the only person who makes updates to your website or you have multiple users that will each have access to restricted areas of the website, the flexible security features make it possible to give administrators just the right amount of access for the tasks they need to do.
  • What do I need to run the CMS?
    • The CMS is fully web based. A working Internet connection is all you need to manage the content of your website from anywhere in the world. We take care of the techincal server issues so that you don't have to.
  • Do you give training in the use of The CMS?
    • Yes, full training is provided immediately prior to the launch of your new website using our Quick Support service – a simple, fast and secure, online solution – we can, with your permission, instantly access your computer remotely and guide you through the training process.
  • Do you back-up my content?
    • Yes, we do a daily website content backup and also offer page version control with an easy restore option.
