  TitanCMS Overview

Join us for this free workshop!


Titan CMS is a full featured yet flexible and intuitive content management system widely used by a wide range of clients including - City of Milwaukee, Briggs & Stratton Corporation, Medical College of Wisconsin, United Way of Milwaukee, Jefferson Wells, and hundreds of other large and small organizations.

For those of you not familiar with the term, "content management" refers to features that allow all of the information on a web site to be dynamically maintained by non-technical users, and to be viewed and published based on the user's password/login.


  • Dramatically improve accuracy and timeliness of web-based information while reducing the time required to maintain such quality.
  • Support the sharing of specific content across multiple sites, resulting in "one version of the truth" - maintain in one place.
  • Greatly simplify the process of updating web site content, and allow content editors to preview their changes in real-time.
  • Allow a large number of non-technical staff members to easily become authors/editors and "own" their own content instead of submitting change-requests to the webmaster.
  • Allow the webmaster and other managers to delegate day-to-day content management tasks while maintaining approve/publish duties.
  • Quickly add pages, interactive forms, event calendars and many other new features to your website without the assistance of programmers.


  • Extranets (secure web sites for key business partners)
  • Intranets (secure web sites for employees and internal business partners)
  • Web site development and interactive design
  • Database development
