Benefits Of A Content Management System
A content management system (CMS) is an application that is used to manage web content, allowing multiple contributors to create, edit and publish.
One major advantage of a CMS is its collaborative nature. Multiple users can log on and contribute, schedule or edit content to be published. Because the interface is usually browser-based, a CMS can be accessed from anywhere by any number of users. The second major advantage of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people who don’t know programming languages to easily create and manage their own web content. The WYSIWYG editors of a typical content management platform allows users to enter text and upload images without needing to know any HTML or CSS.

Before choosing a content management system, it is beneficial to evaluate your company’s information management practices and overall business goals with respect to the publishing of content. When a company uses a CMS to publish its pages, it reduces its reliance on front-end engineers to make changes to the website, making it quicker and easier to publish new content.
Content creation (allows users to easily create and format content)
Content storage (stores content in one place, in a consistent fashion)
Workflow management (assigns privileges and responsibilities based on roles such as authors, editors and admins)
