Project Description

**Out goal!**

We would like to choose a partner for the implementation of a web content management system for small web sites.

With this project we would like to choose a product and an implementer who could work with us on future projects for developing small website using a Web content management system.

We focus on small sites who can be deliverd quickly. The focus is not an providing advanced functionality, but on ease of use for publishing content on the web in a WYSIWYG interface.

One of the products we like is INNOVA web-cms. Have look at the demo for the things we have in mind. Also, because the focus is on small sites, the price for a licence should be fair. It should be less then $150 for a single site licence
