    Website Services

    EPDI's Website Services are based on the open source Plone content management system, and has also developed a Website Template to reduce time and cost in developing and managing a site.


    The EPDI Website Template is based on the popular Plone-4 content management system (CMS). The Template extends the features and functionality of the core Plone CMS by incorporating a range of products and is designed to simplify development and content management.
