Content Management

The Foxbright CMS is known for its
ease of use, simplicity, and power
as a fully self-maintaining content
management system for your website.

Foxbright's Content Management System (CMS) allows the people who create the content (staff, administrators, classroom teachers, and others) the ability to quickly and easily update information specific to their areas of responsibility from any computer with Internet access. At the same time, consistency of presentation is enforced - making sure that the visitor experience is consistent regardless of who is entering the content.

Why use a Content Management System

  • Custom Standardization

    One look at our portfolio will show you that Foxbright websites have nothing in common with those blocky, boring, same-as-everyone-else websites. To Foxbright, standardization means that each page on your site is equally appealing, no matter where it is on your site, or who created the content.

  • Speed

    Changes to the content are so easy, and the tools so accessible that your website can have the latest, updated news whenever you want. With the Foxbright CMS, changes can be made from any computer, tablet, or mobile device with Internet access. Just go to your website, log in, make your change, and you're done!

  • Content Workflow

    Do you want to have key people review content before it hits the website? No problem, Foxbright CMS has workflow built right into it, so that the right person is immediately notified that a page has been updated.


  • Easy to Learn

    The administrative tools used to maintain the website don't require any knowledge of HTML. A basic knowledge of word processing is all that is required to start creating and updating web pages rich with text, images, and links.

  • Efficiency

    Our CMS allows you to distribute website content management throughout your organization allowing everyone the ability to easily update one page, the whole website, or anything in between. No more e-mails, requests, clarifications, or screenshots sent by FAX. Simply log in, make your change, and check it off your list.
