Our content management system is both cross platform and browser compliant. What does that mean?

Macintosh compliant content management system

Globally, Macintosh accounts for some 3% of new PC sales. But Macs have a longer lifespan than PCs (5 years compared to 2 for PCs), and Mac users tend to be much more intensive internet users. At the same time, in different language markets different computer systems have prevalence. For example, around 7% of all online users in Japan are on a Mac. So, if you are in the market for a CMS and want to target a Japanese audience, then make sure you purchase a CMS that produces web pages that are Mac compliant! Nothing worse than having your website display poorly (or not function) to a key market segment. In reality, it is no harder to code for Mac than it is for PC; if your CMS vendor tries to say otherwise send them our way. FYI, around 12% of all hits to our website from Japan are on a Mac.

Cross browser compliant

While Internet Explorer may have dominated the market in recent years, other browsers still exist. The interesting point is that the people that use those "other" browsers are the most intensive web users and the most webs savvy. Typical online purchasers, in other words. So your CMS needs to be compliant with Netscape, Opera, Firefox and Safari, at a minimum. Why miss out on a single potential client because of a coding issue?

Both ends of the system are compliant

This means that the user end (the web site viewer) and the administration end (the content loader/translator) are both Mac and PC, multi browser compliant. So you can be assured that whoever is viewing your site, or loading content onto your site, has full and unfettered access to all the facilities of the content management system.
