Open-Source Content Management Systems by GWS, Bristol

We use user-friendly, streamlined and open-source CMSs

We choose our content management systems for two reasons:

  1. They keep our clients happy with their usability
  2. They keep our developers happy with their flexibility

We give you a website that you fully own; we never lock you in with a custom or proprietary CMS.

As part of our web development packages, we offer free CMS training sessions, so you can speak directly to our web developers.

Benefits of open-source CMS

We use open-source development technology. This means that you own the code behind your website and that future web updates are straightforward.

  • With one of our websites, you are not locked into a proprietary CMS: you are free to leave whenever you want
  • Accessing the web source code is easy
  • Frequent updates by an active user community mean sites stay secure for longer

Drupal is the winner for complex and information-rich websites

Drupal is a powerful open-source CMS, perfect for developing rich bespoke websites. Drupal is easy to use and technically sophisticated. With Drupal, we can develop pretty much any functionality you need (including backend user areas). Drupal is highly secure and is even trusted by The White House for their own website.


WordPress is great for user-friendly content creation

Initially starting off as a blogging platform, WordPress has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the most widely used CMSs. WordPress is easy to use thanks to its straightforward frontend and plugins. The latest WordPress updates have stepped up its game with more sophisticated functionalities and features.
