Essential Tools – Our CMS just gets better

Gain more business from natural search – Soon to be launched is our SEO page checker which will allow quick automated checking of how friendly a webpage is before you publish it. Watch this space!

Following our last news update, we are pleased to advise that the image identification function within our CMS (asked for by some customers) has been developed and applied. This offers better image management – easily identify unused images, list files in which images are used, and more.

A NEW support ticket system is to be launched shortly – with easy online tracking of support issues raised together with better ProMan integration – easier interfacing to our Project Management software allowing easy tracking of current projects

Thank you to our customers who give us ongoing feedback, we all benefit so please keep it coming.
