About Savvy Software, Inc.

Savvy Software is a privately held corporation based in Portsmouth, NH.  The idea for Savvy Content Manager grew out of our work developing database driven websites for clients of Harbour Light Strategic Marketing. These clients wanted the ability to update their own websites without having to use HTML, FTP or any other technologies used in web development.

Features

The most powerful CMS tool in the world will fail if the content owners charged with updating the web site are intimidated by the complexity of the tool's interface. Make sure non-technical people are included when reviewing CMS software to ensure that it will work for everyone in your organization. Put Savvy Content Manager up against any other WCM tool available, and you will see Savvy Content Manager is the easiest CMS tool for your day-to-day content contributors.
ROI is fast becoming an over-used business cliché, but understanding the costs associated with updating and maintaining a web site are important when evaluating CMS software.Hard costs include the expense of outside resources (web designers, etc.) making the physical changes and internal staff preparing and proofing changes that are made. Soft costs are a little more difficult to quantify, but just as important. Would the site be updated more frequently if it didn't require outside resources? Are the right people on your staff working on the updates (e.g. a software engineer is making or reviewing text updates is likely NOT the best use of his or her time) The hard and soft costs associated with keeping your site up to date will allow you to calculate the payback period on your investment.
Content manager software shouldn't prevent a designer from creating your desired image on the web. Nor should it restrict search engines from indexing your site. The CMS of your choice should increase rather than limit the utility and appearance of your web site.
As much as content manager software vendors will claim otherwise, no software package will do everything you need right out of the box. Even if the CMS software does have the feature you want, you might want to use a tool you already own. Look for a content management tool that will allow you to easily expand by adding third party (or your own) functionality to your site.
This seems obvious, but there is more to it than just the vendors software. Can you use the selected solution in a hosted environment or does it require a dedicated server? Are other applications running on the same server that may cause conflicts. Whenever possible, a test of the solution in its' intended production environment is extremely desirable.
