Digital ink never dries. The content management system (CMS) allows the website owner to update the website anytime, from anywhere, at no cost. Every website needs one.
Orbit develops websites using three different content management systems. We use two of the most popular systems, WordPress and Drupal, as well as our own system, Mighty-Site.
These tools give us the flexibility to fit each project with the right backend system.
The client’s requirements determine the tools. Recommendations typically depend on the project’s features, levels of customization and the client’s comfort level with the content management system.
Designing easily updated websites requires careful planning. Along with clean design, brand alignment, and simple usability, easy updates are another critical requirement for every website redesign.
To make the process efficient, Orbit starts with a solid process and bug-free code base.
No website is an island. Over the years, we have integrated with a variety of outside systems. Some are simple, some are complicated, most add great value and potential to the website. Many content management systems have plugins or modules ready to connect with various web-based services using APIs.
Custom integration is often complex, but powerful. Often, integration makes website updates automatic, and data is synchronized between systems. For these projects, the team at Orbit plan and execute automated functionality by connecting to fulfillment centers for orders, ERPs for product inventory and customer accounts, and point-of-sale systems for accounting.
"From the kick-off meeting to the final sign-off, Orbit's staff always portrayed professionalism and organization. Chris, Mary Fran, and Lauren made the trip to view our facility and learn more about our business. They walked us through every step of the project lifecycle, ensuring that we were on target with our vision and our deliverables, answering all of our questions and suggesting improvements when needed."
