What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A content management system, or CMS, is software that lets users build and manage website content without needing specialized coding ability.
Instead of developing your own system for creating web pages and storing content, a CMS handles all of that for you so you can focus on the content without needing to learn how to code at all.
CMS is a critical technology for businesses that need to keep their content up-to-date on a regular basis, saving valuable time and resources by eliminating the need for programming. At RD Global, we’ve been helping businesses develop custom software and apps since 2014. We have the expertise and capability to build exactly the CMS your business needs to create a seamless interface between your website and its content.
Why Now Is the Time for CMS Development
Out of 6.648 billion people around the world, 83.72% of them use
smartphones, according to Statista. According to W3Techs web technology
surveys, 67% of websites use a CMS, and 64% of those use WordPress, the
market-leading platform. The days of static websites are behind us. In
order to connect with today’s customers, you need a content management
system (CMS) that allows you to change the content of your website
quickly and easily.
A CMS serves as a framework for your website. With a CMS, your website
design is separate from its content distribution. Any member of your
team can build and publish content – they don’t need web design or
development skills. There’s no stress over developing or coding a
webpage each time you publish a new blog post – your CMS takes care of
it for you.

Content Management System – FAQS
Any company that needs to take charge of its web presence should use a CMS to achieve that control. With custom plugins and design, business owners can have a fully functioning website that supports content publication and other critical updates without the need for developer input or coding. This means anyone on your team can take over and post blogs or update services.
You should use a CMS if you have a website that requires frequent content updates, which can mean a regular blog publication schedule, updates on service offerings, frequent posting of case studies and marketing material, or other regular development activities. A CMS gives you the control to handle these content updates on a regular basis, and there’s no need to have a developer on staff beyond the initial CMS development.
Our team of CMS developers knows WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal at an expert level. When you book a discovery call, we’ll learn more about your business and website goals, which gives us the information we need to help you decide which CMS is best for you. There’s no single CMS that’s right for all use cases, but each CMS has its own benefits in different situations.
CMS customization is the use of custom coding, programming, and plugins to create a personalized solution for your company or a specific use case. Our CMS development team learns during a discovery call what your pain points are and develops a CMS solution that gives you complete control and functionality.
