Most business web sites are too large to develop page by page.
Content Management Systems represent the evolution of the scalable web site, separating style, layout and content into separate components that can be built into easy-to-manage content templates.

A CMS Benefits Your Entire Enterprise
A CMS allows content creators throughout your organization to create and update website pages and content without the need for IT intervention. This frees up your technicians' time and resources while enabling your marketing and sales personnel to accelerate deployment of new pages and campaigns. Think of it as back-end access without the technical burdens typically associated with web development.
Because it’s database driven, a CMS also gives marketers the ability to integrate and customize the way data from multiple sources gets pulled in and processed, making it an incredibly powerful component of your content personalization engine.
Case Study: Prove Enables an Online Electronics Retailer to Quickly Add and Update Product Landing Pages
Online electronics retailer Monoprice was running strong marketing campaigns that drove plenty of traffic to landing pages; but those pages were consistently underperforming in terms of helping the company achieve key conversion goals. The company was also struggling to build and deploy new landing pages rapidly enough to keep up with the marketing team's launch schedule.
Prove planned, built, and implemented a customized CMS that enabled Monoprice to efficiently create responsive landing pages suitable for virtually any type of marketing campaign needed (products, categories, offers, etc.). The low-cost system streamlined their entire page content workflow, from ideation to publication to measurement and optimization.
Not only does this CMS help Monoprice successfully execute a wide range of key UX and online marketing projects that meet all its functional, social and technical expectations, it has been instrumental in helping the company increase its customer base and drive increased revenue. And all of these scalable results are getting accomplished without unnecessary delays or the need for technician involvement.
