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.

"Studio Republic completely re-branded my business and came up some some extremely creative design ideas. (The problem was choosing between them!) They are very friendly and professional, offering sound advice on all aspects for my new website. Their web design platform is a dream to use. After only an hour of coaching me I was able to edit my site very easily and am very pleased with the end result. I hope to work with studio Republic again in the future and highly recommend them."Anthony Palmer, Managing Director, Seablue Media
