We know SilverStripe inside and out

As a long time SilverStripe certified partner, we’re proud to use the CMS and platform Kiwi’s love. 

When we opened our doors in 2010, we chose to use SilverStripe as our CMS. It is open-source, kiwi made and the only CMS we build with at Web Torque. Instead of diluting our knowledge across multiple CMS platforms, we’ve chosen to sharpen our SilverStripe skills and become experts in one.

Since then, SilverStripe has grown by leaps and bounds and so have we. But what’s always remained is a strong partnership with the platform and a drive to push the boundaries of the web.

With our experience, we set you up with your own custom SilverStripe website or application and take you through the whole process:

Step 1: Discovery

This allows us to get to know your customers. We show you a pre-project phase to put a solid project road-map in place.

Step 2: Foundations

Before designing or building we lay down solid foundations by creating detailed wire-frames and functional specifications. That way you know exactly what’s going into your website or app.

Step 3: Design

Because our designers are involved from the foundation stage they have a good understanding of what needs to be delivered. Focusing on what is important, they deliver simple yet engaging digital design and user experiences.

Step 4: Build

Our SilverStripe builds are designed with users, scale and future development in mind. We keep our customers in the loop with weekly or fortnightly meetings to show the project progress. This ultimately stops roadblocks or surprises for our customers and keeps the project moving forward.

With SilverStripe, we build and design beautiful and functional websites that are flexible and embrace an open-source framework. That means you’re not restricted to one simple template. When you use SilverStripe, you get an adaptable CMS with the coding to back it up.

Together, our developers have over 15 years experience using SilverStripe so we know exactly what we’re doing when it comes to building websites and apps.

Why we choose to partner with SilverStripe

Easy to update content

One of the reasons why we’ve been such a committed SilverStripe partner from day one is because it's CMS lets you easily control your content editing (without having to be an expert in HTML or coding).

“An easy content management system makes a huge difference for the businesses we work with.”

It means our customers can be directly involved with what goes into their site once it’s live, and because the system can be tailored to their needs, it can be used for all types of businesses, from startups, to family-run businesses to large corporates and government agencies across NZ.

Speak to your customers in their language

Another great feature of the SilverStripe CMS is that it can make your content adapt to the language you want. That means you can reach more customers with a multilingual platform that adapts to wherever they’re viewing from. A few of the languages you can use on SilverStripe CMS:

  • New Zealand English, US, Australian or UK English
  • Te Reo Maori 
  • Chinese
  • German
  • 80+ more languages to choose from to suit the target market of your business.

Let your customers visit your website in the language of their choice.

Standout on Google

We understand how important SEO is for a business. If you’re not on that first page of Google, then chances are you won’t be seen. And Google constantly changes it’s algorithms so target keywords are always changing as well.

Luckily, SilverStripe has an easy-to-use module that updates you on the latest keywords and tells you when your page is most optimised.

Add what you want, how you want

SilverStripe understands that every website is different. Some prefer to be more content heavy, while others want a mix of media.

Using SilverStripe’s easy-to-follow addon functions, with a few clicks you can:

  • Set up content approval workflows
  • Publish or unpublish different items on a particular date
  • Share the same content across multiple sites
  • Embed images, videos, slideshows and other media
  • Easily drag and drop files across all your pages

  1. Easily track your edits with version history (it comes standard with every page)
