Design Agency Leverages the Powerful, Easy-to-Use CMS to Grow Their Business
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.—October 21, 2014—LightCMS, a NetSuite (NYSE: N) company that provides a powerful, yet easy-to-use cloud-based content management system (CMS), today announced that Collision Media, a small creative design studio, has built a thriving business by working exclusively with the LightCMS platform since 2008. Collision Media, a boutique firm headed by husband-and-wife team Tommy and Emily Bailey in Nashville, Tenn., has used LightCMS to build more than 200 websites for businesses, ministries, and nonprofits. Collision Media continues to grow its business by taking advantage of the flexibility and agility of the LightCMS platform to design striking websites that meet and exceed client expectations. In addition, the intuitive ease of use offered by the LightCMS platform enables Collision Media’s clients to easily update their websites themselves which opens up bandwidth for the agency to take on additional projects while helping to preserve a healthy work-life balance.
“As a small boutique firm, we could not manage all of the websites we’ve created without a platform like LightCMS,” said Tommy Bailey, Co-founder of Collision Media. “LightCMS has a unique balance that helps speed and simplify the process in front-end design and site maintenance. Clients can update their own websites with a very small learning curve. It’s a win-win for everybody.”
Collision Media recently strengthened its relationship with LightCMS by joining the new LightCMS Partner Platform program, designed to make it easier than ever for creative designers and resellers to focus on what they do best in creating leading-edge websites with a standards-based platform. As a result of the LightCMS Partner Platform, Collision Media has introduced a new and simplified pricing model that offers clients websites with unlimited pages, unlimited products and online store capabilities for a flat fee that replaces a five-tier system that offered various prices based on limits to the number of pages and products.
“One of the biggest benefits of the LightCMS Partner Platform has been simplifying our monthly pricing for our clients,” said Tommy Bailey. “We’ve had great success with it. Our clients really like the new pricing structure and the unlimited nature of the platform so they don’t have to worry about limits on pages or products as they grow.”
“We’re seeing a lot of interest among designers and resellers in the flexibility and attractive pricing offered in the LightCMS Partner Platform,” said Justin Cowan, Director of Content Management for LightCMS. “Collision Media is a great example of an agency that got on board early and is passing along benefits of the platform to its clients to improve customer satisfaction and win new business.”
Collision Media chose LightCMS after previous experiences with WordPress and Joomla that left them needing more. LightCMS equips Collision Media with rich and flexible controls for managing the creative process and also accelerates website development without the need to master specialized programming languages. The responsive web design capabilities built into LightCMS enable Collision Media to deliver beautiful websites optimized to display and function on a wide variety of Internet-enabled devices from laptop screens to tablets and smartphones.
“LightCMS allows for a very quick turnaround. The coding and integration is simple and intuitive and allows us to produce quality work in a fraction of the time,” Tommy Bailey said. “Clients really love the ease of use, and that’s very helpful to us because it minimizes support needs after launching.”
