What Cyclone3 is
We developed our own CMS (Content Management System) back in 1999. Since then interest has been growing in use of CMSs for both large and small businesses. Thanks to Cyclone3 we have been able to produce on-line project for our clients who now use it to managing their portals. The sites vary in size - from small about 20-page sites to multilingual sites with thousands of pages and millions of multimedia items.
Cyclone3 is a feature-rich web application framework with management tools without being difficult to use. It is the perfect web-partner for businesses which wish to have an effective web presence, keeping their customers up to date. The search engine friendliness of the code used in the CMS is also worth attention with many of our sites receive many hundreds of visits a day.
