Content Management that works
The Lab has worked with a number of content management systems, but the one we get the best results with is our own. CatalystCMS is modular by design which means that you only pay for the features you need. We tailor our CMS to fit your needs, instead of trying to find ways to make your site fit an out-of-the-box application.
CatalystCMS is completely customisable to your needs. The following modules are just a taster of the available modules for our system and if we don't have a module that caters to your needs, we can work with you to develop new ones.
The most basic tool in the CMS toolkit, managing your site content, is made easy with CatalystCMS. Adding pages, editing content and archiving are a breeze.
Member Only Section
Control the content your users can see by creating member only sections. Assign usernames and passwords, organise members into groups with different access levels. The control is in your hands.
Add and manage image galleries on your website. Keep your users up to date with happenings in your organisation with photos of events, display your products or artwork. The possibilities are endless.
Get users involved in your site by allowing them to comment on your news articles, blog posts, even your page content. Control whether their comments appear automatically or are moderated by select CMS administrators.
Post your latest news to your website with ease. This module allows you to add, update or archive news articles, choose whether to display on the home page and assign articles to categories for easier display.
Easily create RSS news feeds that allow your readers to follow your news updates easily. Embrace this growing communication technology to communicate with your customers.
Follow your site statistics using this module. Track the number of visitors, length of time they stay for and even where they come from so you can tailor your communications to fit your users.
Site Search Module
Allow your users to search your site, set parameters for advanced search features, organise content into categories for easier search functionality. This adds an extra level of accessibility to your content.
Simple E-commerce Module
Create a store on your site, manage store categories and products and allow users to pay via paypal or more advanced payment gateway. The module allows you to track and control orders and shipping as well.
Create mailing lists with matching signup forms so you can target your email communications to your customers. The module allows for easy management of your lists so you can focus on growing them.
Assign assorted newsletter templates to targetted communications, assign mailing lists and create new content. Once you are happy with how it looks, use this module to export the files for use in systems like Campaign Monitor.
The simple archiving functionality that CatalystCMS provides means you can easily roll back to older content when it becomes relevant again, or use it as a security measure if old site content is ever questioned.
