Your content management system is the back office of your website – whether that’s a large eCommerce store or a bespoke brochure site. Fat Media’s award-winning website developers use WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors – which means you can easily make changes to your site without needing any coding or technical knowledge.
Examples of amends you can make include:
- Updating page content
- Changing or adding photos and images
- Uploading documents for visitors to download
- Choose bespoke calls to action for each page
If you have an eCommerce site, you’ll be able to make all of the above changes, plus amend, add or remove product listings, all while retaining your core content management and shop administration functions.
Our agency is proud to have experts in a number of open source content management systems, as well as fluency in several coding languages including .NET and PHP. This means we have the ability to customise off-the-shelf systems, and create our own bespoke modules to give you exactly the functionality you need.
When it comes to choosing the right CMS for you, our advisors are here to help. Here’s a quick guide to our four main platforms:
For a premium brochure website, the Umbraco CMS is our recommended option. Another open source platform with complete flexibility, for our in-house .NET developers the sky is the limit with Umbraco. Along with a website that looks beautiful and can cope with complex functionality, you’ll have an easy-to-use system to make maintaining it a breeze.
The leading eCommerce platform in the world, Magento is the content management system behind the likes of Kurt Geiger, Jack Daniels and Renault to name a few. But, that doesn’t mean it’s only appropriate for multi-national brands. What it does mean is that it grows with your business, with hundreds of extensions to help you sell more online.
Our most advanced solution is Kentico - an enterprise-level platform capable to handling high traffic volumes and complex system integrations. It also comes with a host of in-built marketing and CRO solutions, such as content personalisation, A/B testing and marketing automation. Kentico also has a great ecommerce solution and can be a great fit if Magento doesn't meet your requirements.
Another fantastic open source content management system, Drupal offers a great solution for organisations looking to have numerous third party integrations with their site, for example CRM or inventory management systems. It also scales easily, meaning your site will grow with you and your business rather than requiring a whole new upgrade to keep up with you!
A great choice for website design projects on a smaller budget, WordPress claims to be powering 26% of the web – so it’s certainly a popular CMS! Our WordPress developers are able to take advantage of the thousands of plugins and widgets being created in the WordPress community and create their own if needed.
This is such a simple content management system to use, so you will have no trouble updating content and making changes yourself once your site goes live.
Whichever content management system you choose to implement, we will give your team full training on how to use it. Your Account Manager is also on hand at any point in the future to help with queries.

We had the pleasure of working with the team at Fat Media in the development of our new recruitment website. They made the whole project very easy for us and nothing was too much trouble. We were on time and on-budget but most importantly they delivered a really creative solution in keeping with our brand - we were thrilled with the results. We have a clean contemporary recruitment website which makes learning more about life at Lakeland very accessible to applicants.Suzanne Allen, People & Business Support Manager, Lakeland
Working with Fat Media has been a pleasure from start to finish – their enthusiasm for creating a brilliant new website starts in the initial briefing and runs throughout the project. They are always on hand to provide guidance and provide solutions quickly. They have a friendly yet professional approach and deliver to expectations and time scales. Looking forward to working with them on the next project!Emily McCoid, Marketing Manager, Bells of Lazonby
The Digital Advertising team at Fat Media did a highly professional and intuitive job from start to finish, and are a pleasure to work with. They took the time to understand what we wanted to achieve, develop detailed analysis which was then evolved based on the data emerging throughout our campaign, and, by them continuously optimising the mix of channels, formats and styles, the results far surpassed our expectations – so much so that we have already set a higher budget for our next campaign.Iain Corby, Director of Operations & Development, Gamble Aware

We worked very closely with Fat Media to make sure all key elements of the site were quickly accessible and found the perfect balance between design elements and user experience.Gareth O'Rourke, E-marketing Manager, Pure Leisure
It was as pleasure to work with Fat Media on developing our new website this year. They were proactive, creative and very practical with their proposals and working approach to meet our needs. We also launched on time – no mean feat with a school website, where approvals are often down to a number of people. They also created our new whole school Prospectus which perfectly complements the website and has given us a fresher, more contemporary feel for all our materials. They remain supportive and helpful and I know that I can always call them up for advice or help.Alison Miles, Marketing Manager, Sydenham High School
