BENEFITS OF A BESPOKE WEBSITE
"Bespoke" - meaning: made to order
Summary: a bespoke website gives you full flexibility in relation to design, development, functionality, and the ability to integrate into your business systems. A bespoke designed website fully promotes your brand and individual identity.
Usability and functionality:
Bespoke website development means you can have the exact functionality you want anywhere on and throughout the site. For example areas for data capture, information feeds, email newsletters, e-commerce functionality, bespoke functionality for your users that you've thought of (or want us to think of), the choices are literally limitless.
Ability to easily grow and change your website with your business. We'll make sure we fully understand the future objectives of your business so any design changes and future development requirements are easily undertaken.
A template website tries to cater for everyone - extremely hard to do - and with this the CMS is invariably complex and can be hard to use as you have to sift through all the controls that you don't need to get to those that you do!
A bespoke CMS will allow you to control exactly what you want, nothing more, nothing less, and be easy to use.
Open Source & Security
As template sites like WordPress are built with "open source" code there is an argument that there is a higher likelihood of hacking attempts as when a module (or plugin as they're known) is found to have a weakness it is usually exploited by those who like to find ways of harming websites and as a plugin is a universal piece of software the weakness will be in all of them.
Although no website is immune to hackers at least bespoke web development can have as much bespoke security applied as required to minimise the chances of your site being hacked.
