Why is Finetune is better than other CMS alternatives?

Other CMS's are developed around the idea of making the site as easy as possible for end users. Unfortunately, it does this at the expense of developers. Even the most basic additions to the system involve extensive revisions incurring a massive blowout in developer costs for other CMS clients. In contrast, Finetune additions are measured in minutes, not hours and are only restricted by your imagination.

Other CMS, such as Joomla, produce sites that all look like, well, Joomla sites. They have a templated look and feel that demonstrates a distinct inflexibility. Finetune sets the designer free, wrapping itself around any design it encounters.

So in the end, we developed Finetune to make our lives easy so we can be set free in giving clients everything we could possibly think of.

Oh, and did we mention our clients LOVE it. We're not kidding - the number of clients who have shown it to their colleagues and been met with Ooos and Ahhhs is impressive. Want proof? Read some of our testimonials.

Can I hook my existing site up to Finetune?

In a word, "yes." For static HTML sites, or sites using Adobe Contribute for content management, then conversion to Finetune is a cinch. Typically a site conversion takes about 4-5 hours of development. Along with the one-off license fee, this means that your site can be enjoying Finetune for around $700 inc GST.

When you see the time saved and the reduced development costs involved, it's the best investment you will make this year.

My site rarely changes - do I really need a CMS?

If your site rarely changes, then from a web strategy perspective you have troubles. The search engines love new content and reward sites for updating their content regularly with top rankings. Many of our clients started out with static 5 page websites that have now grown to 50+ page resources that their customers return to again and again. That's the great thing about Finetune - it's just as good for a site with 5 pages as one with 5000!

I'm no web designer - how can you expect me to edit my own site?

If we had meant Finetune to be used by web designers, we would have charged three times more for it and given it one of those funky misspelt names like "Finetoon" or "Phinetyoon".

Finetune involves single click editing. If you can type a letter in MS Word, then you can use Finetune. Finetune is used by a wide range of professions from scrap metal companies to football clubs, from small travel agencies to personal trainers, from one-man bands to large law firms. If you fit anywhere between these wide ranges, then Finetune is the right tool for you.
