Slate: an SEO-Friendly Content Management System (CMS) Customized for Your Business
At Blue Compass, we offer the Slate Content Management System (CMS), an SEO-friendly system that's fully customized to your needs. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all solution to run every website. Your brand and website are unique, and you deserve a CMS that reflects your individual needs and goals. This is the Blue Compass difference.
Gone are the days of calling IT or being charged expensive hourly rates just to update your website content. Your custom Slate CMS from Blue Compass allows you to quickly, easily and instantly update your website’s copy, page structure and images yourself — and you don’t need a computer science degree to do it. The CMS is designed with everyday users in mind, not programmers.
With Slate, you can instantly control your site’s content wherever you are, whenever you want. No complicated software is required, and your site can be updated from any computer with an internet connection, including your mobile device. Talk about convenient.
Developed with SEO and YOU in Mind
The Slate CMS is specifically designed to attract as much attention as possible from search engines. The CMS is optimized to load web pages quickly and allow you to edit meta titles and descriptions, image alt tags, specify content for Open Graph and more. Our websites even take advantage of semantic search code and include schema to get the most out of SEO.
The admin experience is optimized, making it easy for you to update content. Fresh content makes your website appear active and engaging to visitors, and it prompts search engines to crawl your pages. If you're stuck with a website that is difficult to edit and update, odds are, your content isn't as fresh as it could be. Slate will help reinvigorate your site since it's quick and simple for you to make edits and updates.
A CMS Solution You Own
We develop fully customizable solutions that you own, and that fit your exact needs. The Slate CMS is yours forever and isn’t something we can “shut off” if your company ever parts ways with Blue Compass.
Since we custom build your web functionality, we aren’t constrained by what someone else has programmed. We can edit your CMS any way you'd like, essentially future-proofing your site. From an e-commerce store and online registration to geo-location and social media apps, we can create a custom solution that works perfectly for you now and in the future.
