The Benefits of a JOOMLA Website
The most important reason to use the JOOMLA platform is the ease-of-use, ability to make updates and the flexibility of being in complete control of the content and ongoing edits. The JOOMLA system will allow a non-computer programmer with basic computer skills to make all edits and updates using a web browser. The administrative control panel will allow anyone designated within the organization to update content, photography, video, RSS feeds, manage articles, banners, create online forms, polls, update news feeds and integrate social networking tools.
For example; once logged in, if you are on the homepage in your web browser and want to make an edit, all you would do is LOG IN click on the EDIT ICON within the article, change the text and save… your change is live on the web INSTANTLY.
Having the maximum control of your content will put you in the ideal position to communicate better, easily and more effectively with your customers. Adding promotions, updating banners and posting articles can be done quickly and efficiently without a long development process with a web development team. Advanced blogging and commenting tools will allow your customer to give you feedback on articles and posts. The social networking features will allow your customer to get directly involved and your site will become a community of its own with regular users coming back on a consistent basis.
The system is extremely easy and the basics can be taught within a few hours. However, there are so many options and tools that to really master the full functionality it is recommended that a three hour block of time be set aside for one-on-one training. You would be able to work with an mCentrik team member one-on-one to teach you how to run and manage the entire interface. This means quicker release of information. For example; when you are done writing a press release, you will be able to post it on the web site within minutes without HTML or web development knowledge or software tools. Additional training is also available.
