Silverstripe has many benefits which are great for clients and developers. The ease of use and onboarding process ensures that you’re getting the most out of your website.
What is Silverstripe?
Silverstripe is a content management system (CMS) and framework for creating and maintaining websites, and it’s used by thousands of organisations worldwide.
Content management systems help your organisation manage their website content. Silverstripe is free to download and use, and has a large worldwide community of developers and users who contribute code and support.
Silverstripe is built on PHP, a widely used open-source programming language. This means there are no restrictions on what you can do with the software, and it can be easily extended and customised to suit your needs.
Our expertise developing in Silverstripe
We have a wealth of expertise using Silverstripe to develop websites. Our team has been working with Silverstripe for nearly a decade and we have built a large number of websites using the CMS.
This means we have access to the latest information and resources from Silverstripe and can offer our clients comprehensive support during every stage of their project. This ensures a smooth process and a high-quality end result.
Silverstripe offers a number of advantages for website development. The open-source nature of the software means that there are no licensing costs, and it can be easily extended and customised. The CMS is also very user-friendly, making it easy for our clients to update their website content themselves.
