New Irish tech company creates open source CMS

29 Oct 2010

A new Irish and Danish technology company, Wiccle, has launched an open source content management system (CMS) for start-up companies.

Operating in the International Webworks Galway digital hub, the company was incorporated in October 2008 after years of research into the development of the Wiccle platform.

This CMS lets developers and end users create and maintain websites without requiring knowledge of web coding languages, such as HTML, PHP or Java.

Wiccle has developed two CMS products – Wiccle Web Builder and iWiccle.

Wiccle aims to differentiate itself from other CMS offerings, by providing greater functionality without coding skills. It has more than 30 modules, including video, e-commerce, shopping carts and forums, to put the customer in control of the website.

Both products have a built-in SEO, which automatically generates key words, meta tags and other search engine features.

“We are proud to have developed and launched this product, particularly at a time when innovation in this sector has become near non-existent,” said Wiccle’s CEO Keith Killilea.

“Already the interest is phenomenal and we look forward to working with more SMEs and start-ups to help them achieve their online goals.”
