The full scoop

Sitellite is a very flexible business-oriented content management system based on Apache, MySQL and PHP, the most popular website platform. Sitellite makes it easy for non-technical users to manage content on your site in a secure and controlled way, through features like customizable workflow and document versioning typically only found in much more expensive packages.

While Sitellite is fairly advanced software which can run websites of any size (see our "who uses Sitellite" page), setting up and managing an ordinary corporate website is a fairly straight-forward process that can usually be completed in under a week (complex websites of course take longer, depending on their requirements).

For non-technical users, Sitellite requires very little training once the site is up and running.  Users are quickly able to do some pretty powerful things too, that ordinarily involve custom development time, through innovative features like Sitellite's "box chooser".

To learn more about Sitellite, you can check out the product pages and the user manual.  For technical users, there is also the technical requirements and designer/developer documentation.
