How to use Scalar Enterprises Content Management System (CMS)

Scalar Enterprises use a simple but really versatile, tried and tested, Content Management System (CMS) which can be easily implemented on the specific areas that you wish to be able to edit which simplifies incorporation and reduces development time.

One major benefit of this versatile CMS is that it can also be added retrospectively to an existing web site or extended if you wish to add further editable regions within the site pages at a later date.

It offers an easy to use, intuitive administration interface and can accommodate very comprehensive editing of text and images. It also supports a blog function.

Once we agree what regions you want to be able to edit on your website, we add the CMS code to each page to enable this and set it up and upload the modified versions to the server. We provide you with log-in details and away you go !
