Why use Cyclone CMS?


Simple to use but incredibly powerful

We've put a lot of time into creating something that’s lightweight, fast and incredibly flexible. It enables us to create fantastic websites - whilst still retaining a user friendly interface that you and your team will understand.

If you’ve used a website content management system before, chances are you’ll be able to pick it up straight away without any training, maybe just a few pointers here and there. We have done this by design in our aim to make it what we call ‘instinctively easy’.

Why build our own CMS?

We had a number of clients come to us who had some specific requirements and needs. We analysed a number of content management systems and found none of them could fit the brief fully, so we thought we’d make something that didn’t have compromises.

Why not just use Wordpress?

We find Wordpress to be incredibly clunky, bloated and slow on the front and back end and at times insecure when you start adding plugins. We found ourselves supporting problems more than creating new things and we could never get it to do exactly what we wanted.

Cyclone CMS has a similar feel to Wordpress in its functionality but it’s a fraction of the size of a standard Wordpress install and everything we add is written by us, so we know it all inside out and can provide outstanding levels of support and adaptability.  As a result, we think it's a bit safer and much more reliable.

 

What's included


Robust hosting

Everything is hosted on our servers so we can take the complications out of managing the site for you - but also control the environment the site works on to ensure it’s working exactly as it should and reliable. No more managing servers or databases!

Responsive design

With over 50% of web traffic now through mobile devices, your website needs to look its best on tablets and mobile too. You don't want visitors struggling to use your website and you will get kudos from Google if your site is properly optimised.

Great support

We're the people behind Cyclone CMS and as a result, we know it inside out and can react fast to fix problems or create fantastic solutions. Based in Leeds, we can get back to you quickly and help you out so you can get the most out of your site.

SEO Review

Before we put any site live, we go through it with a multi-point checklist to ensure it's as prepared as it can be to be seen on search engines and and climb the page result rankings. There's no point in a website if it can't be found.
