"Well written, easy to implement software"
The purchase price of any software package is only the tip of an iceberg.
The real costs are hidden in the learning curve required to effectively implement a software package, and in time and effort required to solve the puzzles that inevitably come up along the way.
One look at the kinds of questions that were being asked on the Interactive Tools support forum, and at the quick, no nonsense answers that were offered by an extremely knowledgeable, patient and thorough staff, convinced me that CMS Builder would be well worth the investment.
I've been using CMS Builder for about 3 years and I continue to be pleasantly surprised (amazed) by Interactive Tools ongoing commitment to listening to their customers and responding to their needs.
Well written, easy to implement software, continuing improvement, excellent support. That's a winning combination.
I'm really glad that I discovered CMS Builder, and so are my clients.
"Finally, CMS Nirvana!!"
I have been building websites for
over 15 years and have never come
across anything as good as CMS
It is incredibility flexible. With
only a basic understanding of PHP,
I have been able to build some very
customized websites that I would
have had to outsource to a
developer in the past.
My clients love it. The admin is
simple and easy to understand, I
can customize the admin pages, drop
in tips/instructions for every
section or field and give them
precise control over their text and
Support is rock solid. Have a
problem with a bit of custom code?
Post it in the forum and a staff
member from interactive tools will
soon have a solution for you with
sample code. Still can't get it
sorted or have deadlines to meet,
just hire them to do it for you.
CMS Builder has made my job so much
easier, why have your own php dev
team when you have CMS Builder and
"So easy to use, I didn't even have to train my client"
"This was the perfect solution for my client's site, as they needed to be
able to update several separate sections of their site, which have different
styles of content.
After CMS Builder had been set up on the site - with Interactive Tools's
excellent help - I emailed the login details to the client. He started editing
the site, even before I had explained how to use the system. It's that easy
I've already recommended and bought a copy for another client's site. I've used
several products from Interactive Tools, and this is by far the best."
"Interactive Tools CMS Builder is just the program I have been looking for...
allowing me to easily create new, user updatable websites in a fraction of the
time (and budget) that it previously took. Not only that, but it comes from a
company that I KNOW will support not only the program, but me also. If I need to
ask a question, I am confident that I will get an answer that will solve the
problem that I have.
In addition to the quality support, this program is extremely easy to learn, and
quick to implement. You literally can have a CMS driven site up in minutes - And
I believe I could build the next site in a matter of hours with this program.
Many of my clients have a limited website budget, and up to this point have not
been able to afford a content management system. But, with the very reasonable
cost of CMS Builder, I have at least five existing websites that will soon get a
CMS, and I'm sure I will use it on nearly all sites I build in the future. It
will save me so much build time on these sites that I can easily pay for the
program without even increasing the budget!"
"First, let me say that CMS Builder is outstanding. It will become a standard with most of our websites now and we are figuring out new and interesting ways of using it every day. Our customers love it! We will be ordering a lot of it."
"I had a play about with [CMS Builder] last night and it's what I have been looking for...for years. FANTASTIC. I'll be buying one copy and probably more. I'm very glad I signed up for your newsletter all those years ago. Because of the way it is written, I have always read it too. Thank you."
"CMS Builder has many advantages over other content management systems
I've used. It's flexible enough to handle most any task. I can quickly
integrate it into existing sites or create new ones from scratch in a fraction
of the time it took before. My customers love it too! The end-user interface is
clean and uncluttered. Very little training is required. Just a quick demo to
give them an overview of the system and they're ready to go."
"Finally, a powerful CMS that puts the site control back in the hands
of the designer/developer. This tool has a different approach from other,
better known, CMS tools. Most of those require that you shoehorn their system
into your site. CMS Builder starts with your layout and lets you add their bits
to it... however you want."
"I love this thing!!! Can now see why you were so excited about getting CMS
Builder out and working. Extremely flexible. Once I got over the idea that it
was simply a different version of ArtMan, the learning curve dropped and I found
myself appreciating the beauty of the concept in unanticipated applications.
Beautiful! Many thanks for your wonderful product support, the best reason
of all to use Interactive Tools. Happy Interactive Tools product user since 1999"
"Let me take this time to tell you how pleased I am in doing business with
Interactive Tools. I have been purchasing your products for over the last two
years on behalf of my clients, and really they have been great solutions with
great support. Now I am looking at integrating CMS Builder into my own projects.
While I am not a PHP programmer by any stretch of the imagination, CMS Builder
has allowed me to create a framework by where I can pretty well do any custom
application (CMS, Photo Gallery, Business Listing, Classifieds, etc.) without
the use of a programmer. That's a lot of power! And I really see CMS Builder as
a framework for my web sites, not just a CMS.
Where I am especially pleased is the complete support your are providing for CMS
Builder. Its one thing to answer questions, but to offer programming support and
help above and beyond, is simply outstanding. I know its a lot of time and work
for you, but thank you again."
