Content Management & CMS Integration
welcome to Adobe Business Catalyst (ABC)
Adobe Business Catalyst is our an all-in-one online solution. Why use 5+ different software solutions to successfully run your website, when everything you need is in one powerful & cost effective solution?
Expert website design and development is crucial, but your website's backbone is the Content Management System (or CMS) - this is why we use the best.
5+ Systems in one
The Content Management System (CMS) is extremely powerful and intuitive to use. The CMS allows you to easily create unlimited pages, change any website content (such as text, images, navigation menus, blogs, forums, and many other modules). The CMS also allows you to save drafts, create publish dates, roll back to previous versions, control page styling and manage where pages are found on the site, amongst many other important features.
With the built-in Customer Database, all your customer details are readily accessible and easy to manage. The powerful Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) allows you to track customer activity, set tasks, set meetings, create customer notes, build custom fields, initiate workflows and much more.
Create targeted Email Campaigns to keep in touch with your customers (and potential customers). Inform clients of your latest industry news, send sales incentives (like discount codes & gift vouchers) and track every aspect of your campaign - all in one place, no need to sign up to third party software.
Note: Easily import customers from your existing Email Campaign software via spreadsheet. The built in Online Forms take care of all your customer sign-up and unsubscribe requirements.
Sell to a much wider audience by selling your goods and services online. The built-in eCommerce is extremely secure (fully PCI Compliant) and allows you to take credit card (and other forms of payment) directly from your website. The advantages of having this built into your website are enormous, especially for search engines.
View comprehensive Analytics for your Website usage, Customers and eCommerce in graphical format, and even export to PDF & Excel. Easily create customised Reports on any aspect of your website, customers and sales - create the reports you want to see.
Note: We also add Google Analytics to compliment the built-in Analytics & Reporting if required.

You probably know the inherent problems behind many Open Source CMSs; often being more vulnerable because essential security patches are often not updated (for various reasons), often not regularly backed up and can rely on third party plug-ins which can have their own security and compliance issues.
On the other end of the scale there are Proprietary CMSs, solely owned and operated by the web design company. This has it's own problems; software is often sorely outdated because of limited resources, updates and changes are expensive, and you are at the mercy of the CMS developers. If they disappear, so does your websites backbone.
Business Catalyst is owned by Adobe - one of the largest software companies in the world. Your website is centrally hosted on secure Adobe Cloud Based Servers and is backed up daily. With your new Fuel website, you own the designs, the templates, the code, the databases and all other content. Adobe simply own the back-end functionality which you pay a yearly license fee for, just like any other well know 'Software as a Service' company (like Xero). Your site is fully transferable to other Adobe Partners & Resellers, and you never need to worry about hosting, security and daily backups.
A very important feature is the security. Often with Open Source CMS systems, security updates can be expensive and time consuming and so are often overlooked. Not with Adobe Business Catalyst, as it is hosted on Adobe's cloud servers, security updates are added instantly, databases and content are backed up daily, and most importantly the source code is not available to the hacker community.
Some CMSs can harm your search engine optimisation (SEO), but not with Adobe Business Catalyst. With our expert knowledge of search engines, our hand coded structure, full W3C Web Standards (with every design) and the most powerful CMS in its market - your search engine criteria are well covered. In-fact the system will even send a file to the search engines every day to update their databases with fresh content, and website page addresses can be fully customised.
One of the best things about this content management system is the ease of use. It is far easier to use than many other CMSs, but still extremely powerful.

- Product Chaser
Fuel Design were fantastic! Our relatively complicated back-end programming needed a sleek and clean front-end experience for the customer. Jason and team did a wonderful job of merging these two seemingly incompatible objectives. Our website looks fantastic and is easy to use and navigate, both for the customers and the business.
