WordPress is the content management system in the highest demand among We Are Immediate’s clients (especially our non-profit, legal and educational organizations.) This article covers 5 cool things about WordPress we’ve discovered in the 9 years we’ve been developing in WordPress. Take a look at more reasons to use WORDPRESS.
Many clients believe that, since WordPress is free, and there are literally 1000’s of WordPress templates that you can purchase for $40 (that look pretty good) that WordPress is easy to use. Unfortunately, for many who’ve discovered, that is not true. In fact, when you purchase a WordPress template you are not only stuck with the code of that developer, you are also stuck with the admin panel of that developer. And that is where it all breaks down. In order to be able to easily use any CMS, you need to have a great Admin panel — one that is easy to use and one that makes sense.
We Are Immediate designs and develops custom admin panels to make sure that your pages and posts are easy to set up and content manage. Of course, if you have a complex page structure it might be a bit more difficult to content manage, but We Are Immediate Works with you to ensure success.
But not everything! We are Immediate has built many robust functionalities in WordPress, from registration and e-commerce systems to event management, calendar, and appointment setting, integration with CRM’s (such as SalesForce and HubSpot) and much more. However, if you’re looking for an enterprise level software that does not rely on the code of others, custom or purchased enterprise software is the way to go.
Many people view the world of WordPress development as “a plugin for this and a plugin for that.” The reason for this is that plugins are already development functionality. so the time and money spent creating a WordPress super site can be less time and money. However, if your web development project calls for increased security and deeper levels of integration and customization, We Are Immediate can also integrate our own custom developed plugins.
People often ask us what types of organizations we use WordPress to develop websites. The answer to that is ANY. We have used WordPress for Economic Development Corporations, Towns, Non-Profits, Local Business, Fortune 500’s, Law Firms, Medical practices, and more. Remember what we said in the beginning of this article — it is not about the size of your organization, but rather the type of functionality your project calls for that determines the code that we recommend.
