Content Management System - CMS

A website CMS or Content Management System is software that resides on a server and replaces web pages as a means of displaying a website. The pages do not exist and instead are created from a database on-the-fly, by the CMS software. The owner can edit content online without recourse to a webmaster. Additional website functions and features are added by means of plugins, so that custom development is not normally required. Page design is based on templates instead of the free-form method used in normal web pages, and this means that content is separated from design, so that each does not affect the other. This means the site owner can change the content without affecting the page layout, and that design issues are resolved more easily and quickly. It is just as easy to create a 1,000-page website as a 10-page site, as the CMS creates the page framework and the content can be pasted in. A new page can be created and go live on the site in under two minutes if the standard page layout is chosen. A website CMS is therefore the best way to run a large website, or indeed any site where regular edits or changes are made; and where additional functions will be needed at a later date. A large or complex site will be far quicker and cheaper to build with a CMS.

CMS Advantages

  • Pages are edited online via a normal browser.
  • Edits go live immediately.
  • The site owner can easily edit, add or delete pages.
  • With minimal training, the site owner may be able to add new menu items and even sections to the site.
  • Design and layout are controlled by templates - no custom design is necessary, though of course it can be utilised in order to extensively customise the page appearance.
  • Additional functions are added via plugins - no custom work is needed.
  • Plugins are (or should be) widely available.
  • Content of many different types can be organised and presented in many different ways.
  • Content is completely separated from presentation, meaning that the page content does not affect its layout.
  • Rich media capability is usually better than for standard websites.
  • Many people will have been down the same road you are on. This transfers directly to the CMS you will use, and even more to the plugins. This work has all been done many times before and you reap the rewards. Design issues, functionality issues, and how to do things better - all have been tuned already.

  • Auction Platform

    Our Auction sites are a comprehensive business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) auction system. They are designed to deal with medium- to large-scale auction requirements, and have full back office functionality. At Act-On IT Solutions, we understand that an auction system needs to be scalable to handle high volume throughput, with the majority of bids taking place in the last few minutes of any auction. Our Auction's bidding system ensures an exact close time and precise bidding; there can be no doubt when bids took place and who, ultimately, has won an auction. Our Auctions provide a toolset, which enables you to tune your auction to gain the maximum return per lot. Typically lot-tuning increases the end sale value by 15% and is largely unique to our product.

    Functionality includes:

  • Auto-extension, enables popular auctions with a high bid volume to be automatically extended.
  • Auto-increment balancing allows tuning of the bid increment based on actual auction activity which can help to maximise the casual bidder as opposed to an auto-bidder.
  • Auto-bid functionality provides customers with timely alerts and can enable customers to set an "above auto-bid" percentage band.

  • Our Auctions are not an off-the-shelf product, but rather, a set of components, which will be extended and expanded to meet your individual requirements. We have a set of tried and tested building blocks that are designed to evolve to meet your industry, or the specifics of your business process. The core of our auction engine is updated with new approaches, functionality, and features responding to demands of both customers and individual market places. As a customer you can receive updated functionality as part of our subscription service, enabling cost efficient service enhancements.

  • Reverse auctions.
  • Restricted categories and views.
  • Red Hat Linux integrated.
  • Comprehensive user management and sign-up processes.
  • Invoicing and account functionality.
  • Bulk upload and download of auctions.

  • SEO Services

    Search engine optimization is a method of getting your website to rank higher in search engines—such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. A search engine optimization campaign pairs on-site optimization with off-site tactics, which means you make changes to your site itself while building a portfolio of natural looking back links to increase your organic rankings. When Internet users search for your products or services, your website needs to be the first one they find. SEO helps the search engines recognize your relevance to specific keywords that people search for online. The search engine optimization process includes researching keywords, creating content, building links and making sure your website is visible in the search engines. With nearly 14 billion online searches every month and social media sites that rival populations of large countries, there's unlimited opportunity. But to take advantage of that opportunity, it is vital to rank high in the search engines, to leverage social media and pay per click advertising, and to make sure your website turns visitors into leads and sales. If you don't understand how to successfully apply these strategies, then your customers will go to your competitors instead. Act On IT's SEO technical team has in-depth knowledge in web marketing by following ethical techniques and result-oriented approach. The majority of companies often overlook the Search Engine Optimization or Internet Marketing. However, to take full advantage of online form of marketing, you need to devote as much attention to Internet marketing as you do to the design and formulate an online marketing plan. Unfortunately, there are very few companies with the skills or experience to do this. "However, our service is unique. Our aim is to develop an effective Internet marketing solution through an integrated approach of both design and Internet marketing to harness the full potential of the Internet for your company". We adopt different type of Internet marketing methods after analyzing the individual requirements of client business and target audience.
