Custom WordPress CMS vs basic website tools

We do not usually build “simple websites” at LiteBreeze any more, but have turned our focus to developing heavily customized websites using the WordPress CMS. By heavily customized, we mean a solution that requires 300+ man hours to complete.

Our own website is custom-built with WordPress. It can take a long time to customize and make everything “perfect”, so it is not an ideal option if you are on a limited budget. With an option of both in-house and contract web designers, we can also help with unique web and logo design solutions.

Many businesses require only a simple website for the purpose of sharing basic information. If so, the economical and easiest way would be to use a service like Google My Business Website or Wix. They have a lot of ready-made templates and anyone can easily create and maintain such a website.

These tools provide functionalities such as:

  • showcasing products
  • a contact form
  • compatibility with mobile phones (responsive design)
  • search engine optimization
  • blogs
  • integration with social media

Most developers at LiteBreeze are engaged with development of web application systems using the PHP-based Laravel framework. We believe that challenging projects would keep our developers motivated and help us attract and retain the best talent.
