Why BranchCMS

Reasons why BranchCMS is a smart choice for your website.

BranchCMS is a hosted website content management system designed for building and managing beautifully creative bespoke websites. BranchCMS is not a limited “website builder” and thus does not have any design restrictions. 

Our goals are to make it faster and easier to build and maintain unique websites. Whether you are a web-savvy business owner, an independent designer or part of an agency, BranchCMS gives you the functionality needed for your websites.

BranchCMS has a number of specialized, fully integrated apps like a blog, calendar, gallery, member directory, store, email campaigns, real estate listings, and more. If you want to build an image slider there are a few built-in ways to do that including setting up a Collection Widget, Content Layout, or a custom Content Builder Element. Whatever your content needs are, chances are BranchCMS can handle it out-of-the-box.

As with everything else, you can fully customize all of the apps for your content and design needs.
