We're now SilverStripe Professional Partners

Published: 25/05/2016

Here’s a piece of news that has our entire digital team buzzing - we’ve recently become a SilverStripe Professional Partner.

In order to become a professional partner an agency must demonstrate an expertise in the SilverStripe Framework and have a proven track record of producing high quality websites. Plato Creative tick those boxes (and then some) and SilverStripe agreed, giving us their seal of approval and partnership.

The team think of this partnership as merely a formality, but are proud nonetheless. As early adopters of the CMS (that stands for “Content Management System”), we’ve been building websites on SilverStripe for over 6 years. The platform has evolved rapidly to become a local market leader in businesses preference of CMS, and we’ve been building some creative and complex websites around it.

What’s SilverStripe?

If you’ve ever had a website that you can self-manage content for, you have likely used a ‘Content Management System’ (or CMS) before. A CMS acts as an interface between you and your website, allowing you to make content updates instantly.

SilverStripe is a CMS that was created by a Wellington based company of the same name and has since turned ‘open-source’. The current version 3.2 boasts some impressive features, not least  is the truly intuitive interface that makes managing your website a breeze.

The reasons we've continued to use Silverstripe come down to the flexibility and scalability of the platform. On the SilverStripe CMS we are able to build websites without limits, developed around our client’s business needs rather than being shoehorned into a singular, fixed approach.
