In the fast paced online world which businesses now inhabit, it's never been so important to keep your website lively and up to date. Whether it is product information and prices, customer case studies, latest offers, news and blogs, a web site needs to be a dynamic, living thing if it is to attract and engage effectively.
Making frequent changes through a web designer slows the process down and can be costly too. That is why most people choose to use a content management system (CMS) to give them full control over the content of their web site.
Over the years, we have trialled many different CMS systems – including one we developed ourselves - before we found MODX.
MODX is a cutting edge content management system. It is written in PHP and will run on just about any web server.
It allows our clients complete control over their website through an incredibly intuitive web based control panel. It also allows us great flexibility with the design and functionality of our websites. It has incredibly powerful built-in features including WYSIWYG editing and a blog engine which rivals WordPress. MODX allows us to develop custom and complex applications tailored to your business, such as recruitment systems, product catalogues, image galleries - the possibilities are endless.
MODX is open source which means there are no licensing costs but out of the box it is an empty framework which requires time in regards to development. Our clients come to us looking for a website that is fit for purpose, functional and showcase their brand as accurately as possible. As MODX Gold Strategic partners, we're very well versed with the ins and outs of the system, so this is very cost-effective for the clients we work with.
[Interesting note: MODX originally started as more of a community project, there is a lot of love out there for the platform, with a growing number of developers, all ready to contribute code and advice to others.]
As partners, we get the scoop on any new developments. We're members of the partner network, giving us access to hundreds of other MODX developers worldwide upon whom we can call for backup and advice when we need it.

"We engaged Studio Republic to assist with the redesign of our website and were so impressed that we asked for additional help with the design of a new corporate brochure and event materials. They are incredibly professional and hard working, and took time to understand our business and research our market before commencing with the project. We had looked at a number of options before deciding on Studio Republic and would recommend their firm to anyone. They have become a very important partner and we look forward to continuing to work together as our business continues to grow"Richard Watts-Joyce CTA, Regional Managing Director - EMEA, Global Tax Network Ltd
