Comparison of The Toolkit vs other CMS's

When choosing the right CMS for your business website it's important to consider what the pros and cons of each CMS are.

Most Open Source CMS systems are complex to cover every possible functionality (whether needed by you or not) and will require a web programmer to make customisations to tailor it to your small business. Examples of open source CMS systems are Drupal, Joomla & Wordpress.

If you are a small business then a CMS like the Toolkit that is feature rich but designed & tailored for the needs of the small business is ideal.

Most small business owners are told that Open Source is the best and most cost effective solution for any website. However this is nearly always put forward by small, start up web design companies who by using Free, Open Source Software don't have to invest in their own systems.

As the CMS systems are not their own these companies don't usually provide any support, customer service, protection from hackers or daily back ups.

So, if you are a small business and have limited computer knowledge, you should consider the Toolkit which provides unlimited support & training.
