New and improved bespoke content management

Calendar Posted 9th May 2014 | Category: Company | Feed Icon

Simon

We are extremely excited to announce the launch of a major upgrade to our content management system (CMS), BlueEdit. This is the first significant overhaul to our in-house CMS for a few years and a lot of the core framework has been re-built from the ground up.

Why improve our bespoke content management?

The previous version of BlueEdit served us well for many years and is still in use in 80% of our existing client sites. However, over the years we have built a long wish list of client requests for extra features and added our own ideas about how the system could be improved. It's not that the old system was a bad one; we just knew it could be even better.

An important factor for our team was to increase the speed of development and flexibility for new features. The new CMS is significantly quicker when rendering front end pages and the underlying code is much more straightforward to maintain and extend. This all adds up to a system which is more easily customised to meet our client's needs. Read more...

The hidden epidemic

There's a new epidemic sweeping the planet, and it's not what you think. Sure, there are diseases, wars and food shortages across the globe. But what about web developers? Coding all day without sunlight, eating nothing but takeaways, and of course spending all their time at the desk.

Here at Bluelinemedia, we're working to stop Causes of Sedentary Situations (CSS). We're going to change the world one step at a time with our War on Weighty Workplaces (WWW). So let us tell you How To (be) More Lean (HTML).

Are you a web developer? Do you know a web developer who needs our help? There's no need to stop coding! Just fit in our five simple exercises while you work. Read more...

Our team day

Ben

We must admit that our 'team days' are more for pure enjoyment than team building, as we already have a great atmosphere in the office. Still, it's great to have an excuse to mess about outside the office!

web developers golfing

Our day of fun began with a light 9 hole golf round at Shipton, complete with water hazards. James managed to get one of his balls underneath a bridge and Ben lost one in the grass, one in the water, and one in the hedge.

You know how there's always that one annoying person who wins everything? At Bluelinemedia it's James, who thrashed us on the 9 holes, although much of his time was spent looking for everyone else's missing balls. Read more...

20% off our services

Ben

We know it's Christmas and you're starting to wind down, but if you're planning any changes or even a new website we're offering 20% off services confirmed before Friday 23rd December.

As much as we love Christmas, it can leave our January work schedule a bit quiet, which is why we're offering a discount for this month only. Whether you're already a client or thinking of switching to us; whether you want a whole new website, a new feature or some SEO work: get in touch and confirm the work before 23rd and we'll give you 20% off. It's that simple.

For larger projects we may require a 25% deposit, and this offer does not apply to our discounted rate for upfront hours. If you have any questions call Ben on 01242 244620 or email ben@bluelinemedia.co.uk. Read more...

97% of clients would recommend us

Calendar Posted 3rd November 2011 | Category: Company | Feed Icon

Ben

We carried out a survey with our clients to find out what you think of our service. Responses were provided anonymously to make sure everyone was happy to be honest and point out issues if there were any.

While the content management score was lower than we hoped, in 2011 we have released a new and easier version of the system. We're pleased with the high scores overall but will still be working to improve our service and scores next time.

We also asked if clients would recommend us, and 97% said yes. Read more...
