PilotSite CMS



PilotSite CMS is our web based content management system which has been developed to enable non-technical users to create, update and manage their websites.

Entering content is as easy as using a word processing package. PilotSite CMS uses a WYSIWYG editor similar in appearance to Microsoft Word to allow users to edit content text and upload images. Using an editor means you don't need to know any HTML and can concentrate on the main focus of your website - the content.

The PilotSite content management system allows multiple users at different locations to create and manage the website content. Integrated into the CMS is a workflow process that allows for finely tuned permissions, allowing managers to control sign off and publishing of all site content. There is no limit to the amount of content (pages, images, documentation etc) that can be stored, the only limit is how big you want your site to be.

PilotSite CMS is a 100% browser based content management system and as such can be used by anybody with an internet connection and web browser. PilotSite CMS is fully compatible with IE, Firefox and Safari browsers across the Windows and Mac OSX operating systems.
