SilverStripe CMS

As long time SilverStripe developers, we’re proud to use the CMS and platform Kiwi’s love.

SilverStripe is a trusted platform that is open-source, Kiwi-made and trusted by small businesses and government departments alike. Over a combined 15 years, our developers have sharpened their SilverStripe skills and we can proudly say that our SilverStripe developers are some of the best.

With our experience, we set you up with your own custom SilverStripe website or application and take you through the whole process:

Step 1: Discovery

This allows us to get to know your customers. We show you a pre-project phase to put a solid project road-map in place.

Step 2: Foundations

Before designing or building we lay down solid foundations by creating detailed wire-frames and functional specifications. That way you know exactly what’s going into your website or app.

Step 3: Design

Because our designers are involved from the foundation stage they have a good understanding of what needs to be delivered. Focusing on what is important, they deliver simple yet engaging digital design and user experiences.

Step 4: Build

Our SilverStripe builds are designed with users, scale and future development in mind. We keep our customers in the loop with weekly or fortnightly meetings to show the project progress. This ultimately stops roadblocks or surprises for our customers and keeps the project moving forward.

With SilverStripe, we build and design beautiful and functional websites that are flexible and embrace an open-source framework. That means you’re not restricted to one simple template. When you use SilverStripe, you get an adaptable CMS with the coding to back it up.

Why we choose SilverStripe

Easy to update content

One of the reasons why we’ve been such a committed SilverStripe partner from day one is because it's CMS lets you easily control your content editing (without having to be an expert in HTML or coding).

It means our customers can be directly involved with what goes into their site once it’s live, and because the system can be tailored to their needs, it can be used for all types of businesses, from startups, to family-run businesses to large corporates and government agencies across NZ.

Speak to your customers in their language

Another great feature of the SilverStripe CMS is that it can make your content adapt to the language you want. That means you can reach more customers with a multilingual platform that adapts to wherever they’re viewing from. A few of the languages you can use on SilverStripe CMS:

  • New Zealand English, US, Australian or UK English
  • Te Reo Maori
  • Chinese
  • German

80+ more languages to choose from to suit the target market of your business. Let your customers visit your website in the language of their choice.
