The days of your web developer holding you hostage and forcing you to go through him to update your web site has long been over. There are so many tools and solutions one can use to self update a web site’s content.
One of the newest tools, WYMSY, enables companies to keep content fresh and current. There is no software to buy, no updates to install: all functionality is included with BrightWork’s Web hosting services. Updating content is as easy as editing Word documents, and design changes are automatically carried to all pages. There is also a fully functional e-commerce module included.
Other solutions to update a web site are to use a blogging tool like Blogger.com, Reddot.com, Edit.com or Typepad.com.
“We developed WYMSY for companies that want or need a customized Web site with easy, robust content management capabilities,” says Jane Bright, BrightWork’s COO. “For designers who want to speed Web design, this is a compelling alternative to templates on one end of the spectrum and time-consuming Front Page and Dream Weaver at the other.”
Severe weather forced cancellation of many scheduled programs this winter, including one offered to small businesses by The Enterprise Center at Salem State College. But for the first time, informing attendees of schedule changes on the organization’s Website has been a breeze, thanks to WYMSY Website Management System, a new Web design and management tool from BrightWork.
“I’ve developed four Web sites, and in the past making a change was arduous. It was difficult. Everyone would have moaned and groaned because it would be a pain to put new content on the site,” said Christine Sullivan, Executive Director of The Enterprise Center. “With WYMSY, all it takes is a few clicks. My staff and I could post content after just a few minutes of training, without having to learn code. It’s that easy.”
