Content Management System (CMS)
Our website design & development services include a CMS that allows you to assign specific users with rights to modify specific pages within the website. You can easily change content, wording, menus, photos, images and other items throughout the site through a web-based interface.
This system allows for quick and easy site update and modification without the intervention of specialists or vendor technicians, and it dramatically simplifies the process of making changes to your site. The BCT CMS was designed for quick updating and allows the launch of all content changes to the live website within a matter of seconds.
The BCT CMS utilizes the most modern technology available to ensure that the system is as straightforward and user-friendly as possible. The BCT CMS is rich with features that allow the construction of nearly any site quickly and easily by using the provided tools.
Features include an events calendar, a site search feature, a media gallery module (for uploading photos and videos), document display, a resource directory, and a full-service shopping cart, complete with Authorize.Net integration for credit card transaction processing. Search engine optimization tools are also included to allow you to adjust each page’s meta keywords, descriptions, URLs, and page titles to help you get your site to the top of the most popular search engines.
Our CMS is scalable, highly functional, and fully customizable; its unique features and innovative technologies ensure superior performance. Some of these specific features have been detailed below.
Site Design and Template Management
A WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor offers the simplicity of a toolbar for full control of the formatting and appearance of the site's content in a way that is familiar to everyone. However, content can also be created and edited in HTML mode.
An Alt Tag updating feature on the editing screen allows site modifiers to tag all text and images, making all new site content W3C compliant.
Authentication and Authorization
The system is equipped with the ability to produce an unlimited number of user accounts. This system allows all desired users to access any or all areas of the website. The site administrator is able to approve all site adjustments before they are published on the live website, and a permissions system is customizable to grant users limited or complete access. No operating system user accounts are required for the establishment of these authorized CMS accounts. All authentication credentials are encrypted to protect each user.
Forms of multiple sizes and styles are easily made through the drag-and-drop method that allows site modifiers to insert fields and designate their purpose. These field types include text boxes, check boxes, raised buttons, etc. All input cells are completely customizable, and all submitted data can be sent to a specified e-mail address.
SMS Text Messaging
Site visitors have the option of receiving "text blasts," another standard feature of BCT's CMS. Using SMS text messaging technology, visitors can sign up to receive text message alerts. A visitor would access the live site, enter in his or her cell phone number, and select the categories of messages s/he would like to receive. The Text Blast screen in the CMS allows authorized administrators to quickly and efficiently send out text messages to the visitors who opted to receive the service. BCT protects users against Spam messages with the security features built into the system. Furthermore, users can unsubscribe to the service at any time. Because the SMS text messaging technology is designed internally, it is included in the CMS licensing fee at no additional cost and no per message cost.
