Turn existing site into CMS

This is for a safari operator in Zimbabwe, [url removed, login to view], who currently has a web site that is partly static, partly dynamic.

As we go through evolutions, we are getting frustrated by the lack of flexibility and want to consider a CMS option: transform the site into a CMS - could be Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress, you may advise... and quote !

The characteristics are the following:

(here is what exists, and what possible evolutions we foresee, which may help recommend the CMS)

- Editorial part:

It is mostly made of products pages (camps and safaris), general info, and e-news. The only requirement is to make it easy to integrate a number of pictures (see camps pages for example).

One "special" must come up onto the homepage, as well as the last "e-news".

Also, we intend to improve the template of the camps and safari pages. In fact, that is what prompts us to lookk for a CMS (as we must update manually the pages otherwise).

We may add another section with links to interviews, feedbacks, etc.

- Private section:

Part of the business is with general public, part is with agents (B2B). Those currently have access to a private section, where they can download hi-res pictures of the camps ("gallery" tab). It must be easy for us to upload these pictures, and for them to view / download them.

Agents also have access to an online reservation system (Resrequest), but that should stay out of the CMS as it is on a different platform and URL.

- Interactivity:

There is a need to integrate a subscription form for an emailing system, as well as a contact form.

Ideally, the camps and safari pages could link to it and pre-fill some information.

- Community

We could consider in the future some system of feedback from customers, if they can be moderated

We'd like also to integrate with some Facebook fan page or something.

- External feeds

We would like to ber able to integrate few RSS feeds, upon moderation, from news about Zimbabwe / tourist news.

Please provide:

- a recommendation for a CMS choice

- a quote for turning the existing site into CMS, based on what you can see.

The only additional things we will consider which you can not see on the site are:

1> the private section ("gallery") with pictures to download.

2> Modification/improvement of template of the camps and safari pages.

3> Including RSS feeds for Zim info.

We could provide you with detailed shots of these options.
