Contegro Version 4 is an innovative website CMS that removes the developer’s role from the website life cycle. It was conceived six years ago when founder Vaughan Reed and designer Karen Mills set out to make web design hassle-free.
“The vision,” says Reed, “was to create a web CMS that would empower designers, not developers to define the possibilities in website creativity.”
Until Contegro, few products existed on the marketplace that gave designers the ability to build rich, highly functional websites without a developers input. “The products that were available,” says Reed, “were created by developers for developers and they were not intuitive or user-friendly in any way.”
With the launch of Contegro Version 4, the game has truly changed. “The latest version allows web designers to be fearless,” explains Reed. “Contegro’s dedicated and dependable support resources empowers web designers with the courage to solely take-on bigger opportunities, more complex web projects and as a result achieve greater profits,” he says.
A key development in Version 4 is a Windows-style desktop that will make even first-time website CMS users feel like experts. “The intuitive interface brings simplicity and usability in web CMS to a whole new level,” says Reed.
CMS reviewers are already raving about Version 4. CMS Critic predicted it to be, “A hit among the design community” and praised its “Easy to use template system, ability to integrate code snippets and multi-site management capabilities.”
Version 4 of Contegro is the product of half a decade of fine-tuning and for Reed, the time is right to conquer the global Website CMS market. “Our goal is to be listed within the top 20 CMS providers and the No 1 Website CMS for web designers within the next five years,” he says.
“Web designers the world over dream of hassle-free website projects that are delivered on time and on-budget,” says Reed. “We know this because we’ve been designers, and we understand the frustrations. Contegro Version 4 is the answer to these frustrations.”
The company is looking to partner with up to fifteen companies within New Zealand while internationally the focus is on breaking into the United States CMS market first.
“We are currently in discussions with several potential partners in the US who are genuinely excited by the product,” Reed says. “If early indications are anything to go by, our ambition to be the No 1 Website CMS for web designers is looking very realistic.”
