Open Source Software

By Craig Allan
" Open Source used to have questionable reliability and was not considered to be best for business - Now Open Source software rivals the big brand companies for share of the business tools landscape... and this is only the beginning!"

Operating systems, email clients, content management systems, office software, client resource management tools and much much more... you'll find an Open Source alternative for most 'propriety' software most businesses use daily!

The team at Visionary Group uses many of these systems to power sustainable growth in a cost effective way, we support the philosophy, flexibility, security and scalability that Open Source software has to offer.

Open Source software can benefit your business by:
  • Reducing the cost of software purchases and licensing costs
  • Typically being more secure and less vulnerable to serious vulnerabilities
  • Faster update cycles, harnessing new technology developments
  • Allowing for free or cheap plug-ins to be included for easy customisation
  • Supports dedicated developers who believe in software for the masses
For more information on how we use Open Source software, or how we can assist you in your business joining the Open Source revolution, contact us now!

Content Management System Websites

By Craig Allan

"Before you contract a web developer, make sure they use a Content Management System (CMS) - It will save you time and money in the long run!"

You've just spent thousands of dollars on your new company website, the experts say that 'Content Is King' so you want to add new pages, change text and keep your site up-to-date - wouldn't it be better if you could do that in-house as opposed to paying a web developer every time?

Using a CMS website benefits your business by:
- Future-proofing your website and extending the service life of the design
- Ensuring a seamless transition process when upgrading security, design and hosting
- Allowing content updates to be carried out within your organisation, saving you $$$
- Separates design from content, allowing changes to be made quickly and remotely
- New technology plug-ins can be installed in minutes for extensive functionality

Visionary eBusiness uses Content Management System (CMS) websites for ALL NEW PROJECTS and encourages clients to migrate their 'static' site to CMS as soon as their able!

We use and recommend Joomla! CMS and related supporting components to our clients to best suit their current and future needs - click on the images to visit sites.
