What's a Content Management System and Why Should I Care?

"A content management system (CMS) is a computer software system for organizing and facilitating collaborative creation of documents and other content." (Wikipedia)

 In short, a CMS is a server based alternative to traditional tools used to create and maintain web sites. If you are a business with a website, the bottom line is cost/performance - a CMS can both reduce the ongoing cost of your website and increase the effectiveness of the site.

NexDir is unique in that it is designed specifically for small business sites and for regional consolidation sites, and provides for content "funneling" and sharing. This creates a synergy between geographically related sites and facilitates data sharing and eliminates redundant data entry. The option for a shared database keeps hosting costs reasonable and competitive with traditional content hosting.
