Content Management refers to the storing, controlling, versioning, and publishing of web pages such as news articles, operator manuals, technical manuals, sales guides, and marketing brochures; within a user interface. We use MODX which is a Content Management System (CMS), it's a highly flexible and customisable system that can be tailored to any site requirement to increase productivity.
This area might be rather jargon based but for those of a technical mind may appreciate what MODX has to offer. Both versions have the following features and functionality, without getting too deep in to the differences of the platforms the list below is a basic overview.
A flexible API and event model that allows you to override core behaviour. You get incredible flexibility along with the ability to customize MODX to your needs and maintain a simple upgrade path. If you're curious, you can learn more about our PHP Application Framework functionality.
With ease you can add and update SEO terms for key products and pages very quickly. Using the built in Friendly URL function this makes SEO a breeze and will help increase your standings in search engines.
MODX does not force you into awkward and confusing blocks-this or channels-that templating engines or layout rules making it the dream CMS for CSS and Standards oriented sites.
If you are not clued up on HTML markup and want to update your own site without 'breaking' the look, this is easily achieved using the build in rich text editor. You can format your text, include images or make a word bold with a few clicks. HTML coding made easy!
You don't need to install extra software to manage your site. In fact, all you need is a modern web browser to edit your content.

We have successfully edited sites using an iPhone and an Android phone, truly brilliant.
Ajax is the buzz word of Web 2.0, basically it allows interaction from a user without the need to refresh a page, it can gather information on the fly or update galleries and chat boxes.
