Stabililty, Simplicity, Functionality

Filed under: CMS - by Administrator @ 9:23 AM

While NovusCMS was originally (2001) a unique proprietary system, we quickly found the joy and power of programming with the open-source movement.  For several reasons, we chose to hitch our wagon to the Umbraco project.  Ever since, we have been implementing the Umbraco core with slight modifications specifically made for the public sector.  The mantra that has guided our development has been "stability, simplicity, and functionality."   This mantra serves as both priority list and guiding principles.

Recently I was reading the Umbraco forum and found this tidbit of insider information:   "One of the main mantras behind Umbraco, and further enshrined in Umbraco 5, is 'flexibility, extensibility and simplicity.' "

While our lists are slightly different, I think it shows how wonderfully matched we are.  There is a certain rhythm that flows through both; different but parallel.

It's nice to have found our niche.

New Website for the City of Greenville

Filed under: CMS - by Administrator @ 9:24 AM

The City of Greenville has finally made the move to investigate options for a new website.  Being our home town, obviously we are pretty excited to see our City move from an out-dated html site to a CMS driven website.

Now we're talkin'

Maybe you couldn't care less what we think about while working to make NovusCMS the best possible CMS for the public sector.  On the other hand, maybe you'd like to know what type of company we are.  We think it's best if we are transparent and honest.  Hopefully you'll agree.

Peaceful development

Filed under: CMS - by Administrator @ 12:04 PM

The end of the year is always great for us.  Not only is there yuletide peace and warm greetings floating all 'round, but we also get some time to develop functionality without phone calls.  Since most of our customers are on vacation, we get some time off too.  Just like you, we like to enjoy the holidays with our families; we shut off the computers and lock the doors too.  Equally important, we get to dive deep into projects that have been pushed to the back burner.  Plus, we get to plan, think, strategize, and dream.  It is the pause that refreshes!

We're using this season to polish some new enhancements to NovusCMS functionality.  Meanwhile, we wish you a delightful break and holiday!
