"We want to be able to update our own website"

With web sites playing an increasingly important and central role, organisations are wanting websites that they can update and control the content on themselves. Often the people doing the updating are not programmers, although sometimes they are. A content management system puts anyone in control of and able to contribute to their website.

For non-programmers, a CMS makes it possible to control website content. For programmers and IT professionals, a CMS provides a design framework, makes updating fast and efficient and enables them to share content management with less technical colleagues.

For corporate customers, a CMS provides an easy way to publish news and press releases, as well as an ideal way to keep product and service information fresh and updated. Artificia can provide a CMS website with a workflow system that gives users different access rights, including a range of publish, review/approval and retract capabilities.

This year, Artificia has delivered two content management systems - one to a theatre company and another to a school and college of further education. (Case studies follow below.)

News : Artificia launches

Content Management System websiteHardware-Arena is a shopping directory that brings together the hottest deals in hardware for computer, gaming (PlayStation, X-Box, Wii etc) as well as digital photography, USB and remote control devices.

Artificia built this system using Joomla as the main content management system, with Virtuemart as the shopping cart/directory and CJ Catalog Builder as the seemless link with Commission Junction. Thus the site advertises a large catalog of products for sale by other retailers and makes it's money by acting as an associate marketer, via Commission Junction. 

Similar sites could be created to target any market! Contact us for details and a quote. This system is effectively a money tree! Just plant by launching the site, water with regular additions to the product catalog and watch the commission revenue blossom!

News : Artificia delivers CMS website for School

Content Management System websiteTolworth Girls School and Centre for Continuing Education contracted with Artificia to produce a website capable of delivering a range of content and media to present the work and activities of their school. They needed to be able to upload content such as pictures, vidoes, sound files, text, files and manage the site themselves. The users that would do this included office staff, IT staff, teachers and pupils.

Using Plone, Artificia was able to deliver a website controlled by a Content Management System, along with on and off-site training and support for a range of staff and potential content managers. The site has been embraced well and is already show casing pupil's work in a ground breaking way that is catching the attention of other schools and colleges.

News : Artificia builds automated invoicing system for Wilson Logistics

Logistics Automated Billing and Invoicing

Wilson Logistics needed a networked software application that would run on desktop machines, accessing a central database and connecting with the databases that managed their logistics business.

Prior to the software produced by Artificia, billing and invoicing was a highly complex operation that involved a large department of administrators. The succesful calculation of invoices was dependant on historical knowledge in the heads of those administrators.

Logistics Automated Billing and Invoicing

Artificia built an application which encapsulated the contractual agreements between Wilson Logistics and their clients, thus codifying the billing and enabling automated calculation of invoices based on highly complex and varied billing arrangements. The application drastically reduced the man power involved in the billing process.

Oh...and the software looked gorgeous too! Artificia prides itself on producing attractive and intuitive software that is both easy and pleasant to work with.

Wilson Logistics is now part of TNT

RescuePet is a non-profit organisation, that provides a central system where UK rescue shelters can enter details of animals in need of good homes.  The public can then visit the site and search the database for the animal that best suits them.

Operational costs are raised through corporate sponsorship and affiliate marketing, however, the RescuePet Internet database is a free service for both shelters and public visitors.  The RescuePet system consists of two interfaces, one for the rescue shelters to use to upload details and photos of animals in their care and one for the public to use to search that database.
