You may already be using a Content Management System like WordPress, Squarespace, Joomla, Wix, or something like them. These platforms got your feet wet in website management, but now you’re ready for something better for your business.

We at LRS Web Solutions took a look at that list to see how well our own content management system LRS Antilles Content Manager (named after a group of Caribbean islands) stacks up. We've been building websites since the dawn of the web.  

We continue to refine our content management system based on the needs and wants of our clients and the evolution of responsive web design. That’s a unique feature in the world of CMS: we built it, and we maintain it. (And we have fun, too. See the team.)
