Web Publishing Benefits of liveSTORYBOARD CMS for Web Developers
10 reasons developers benefit from liveSTORYBOARD CMS
Create quality sites for your clients. Whether you are just starting out or an expert on web standards, liveSTORYBOARD CMS will help you quickly and easily assure that your sites are coded consistently, using semantic markup, are accessible and valid.
Adapt the use of a content management system to your needs and preferred process. Developers have alternative uses for liveSTORYBOARD CMS - use it to mockup, hand-off and save a templatized, componetized site faster or use it to start a site complete with functional deliverables and hand it off to your client to populate with content and apply styling.
Make a better use of your time and defer responsibility by delegating content entry/updates to the content contributors. liveSTORYBOARD CMS also allows you to work independently and test your code on our staging environmentsAn intermediate server(s) used to deploy updated content/code/design to assure quality before promoting to the live environment without affecting content workflow.
Keep scope under control. By employing the power of storyboarding and prototyping you can clearly communicate with clients about scope/deliverables and avoid unpredictable issues down the road. You can prototype required functionality or you can ask clients to do so to clarify their needs.
Save time through custom components that clients can assign to areas of the site that need them on their own.
Ensure your code will continue functioning as you handed it off after clients take control of content and/or layout through liveSTORYBOARD's separation of content, presentation and business logicThe content, presentation and business logic layers of a website are stored separately and can be interchanged independently.
Gain competitive advantage through offering your clients search engine optimized source code with no extra effort on your part.
Profit from the shortcuts liveSTORYBOARD provides, while ensuring the highest quality of your deliverables. Quickly add useful features like table of contents, snail trail, multiple and consistent navigation schemes, page counters, related resource callouts, printer-friendly page versions without the need for any additional coding.
Offer a more comprehensive array of services. liveSTORYBOARD CMS stores content in XML, styles it with CSS and XSL and generates clean cross-browser (X)HTML automatically. If you are familiar with XML/XSLT, you can extend liveSTORYBOARD on your own to add custom functionality.
