Many of todays small to medium sized business owners are no strangers to multitasking. But updating your own website? The Horror!
Adster feels that as an owner operator, nobody knows the unique nature of your business like you do. So, when it comes to creating valuable web content, who better than you to do the talking?
Managing Your Website Content with FLEX
Built from the ground up with small owner/operator businesses in mind, FLEX is a CMS built for speed, security, ease of use, and allows our typically non-technical clients to build amazingly well search engine optimized web pages without even trying.
For the more tech savy out there, FLEX is a robust MVC (Model-View-Controller) Content management system that is based on the CakePHP framework. Whew.
Perhaps the coolest thing about FLEX, is that it isn't an 'off the shelf one size fits all' solution - each and every build of FLEX only includes EXACTLY what you, your staff and your business needs to maintain your website - and nothing to confuse you.
