Content Management: A System You Can Work With

Even a small website can contain a great deal of information in the form of copy, photographs, and graphics. As most websites change content frequently to reflect changes in products, services, and news and information, a straightforward and reliable Content Management System (CMS) is essential.

For Brockett Creative Group clients, we provide just that CMS through our subsidiary tSpark. The tSpark CMS gives users the ability to add and remove pages, add, edit, and delete text, and control images throughout the site. In developing the design for your website, we will work with you to get the header and footer – which generally do not change and often contain the site menu, location, and contact information – where you want it and then build your site into the CMS so that it appears the way you want.

At this point, BCG staff will provide you with unique login credentials and train you how to use the tSpark CMS. You will then have complete control over the information you present on your website, allowing you the flexibility to adapt to any changes in your industry or the market.

If you’re ready to take control of your website, email or call us at 315-797-5088.

What’s Up with Website Apps?

At their most basic, website applications (apps) help users interact with your website, adding value to their experience.

Web applications are what allow us to have the interactive experience with websites that we enjoy today, unlike the static websites of the past. Any time you fill out an information form, login, use a shopping cart, check webmail (e.g. Gmail), use a map, or manage your website with a Content Management System, you are using a website application. They are also what allow websites to store information that you provide so that you don’t have to re-enter it with every interaction (think credit cards on your go-to shopping sites).

Web applications are also built to be compatible with any number of browsers and operating systems, so someone using an iPhone during the day and a PC at night will have a consistent experience.

Proper coding of web applications is essential, as weak coding can lead to security vulnerability. Considering the information gathered and stored by these apps, any security weakness has the potential for devastating consequences.

Among the web applications built by Brockett Creative Group are:

  • MyPath, an app that allows site users to create and organize destination itineraries
  • Job and Internship Placement that connects job seekers with employers and offers job search tips and information
