Why build your site with Simplo?

  • Portability: Your site is build with Backdrop CMS and both the data AND the code are portable. If at any point you want to move your site elsewhere, you can take your site and move (we'll even help you do it).
  • Training and Support: Your Simplo site is built with Backdrop CMS, a full featured open source CMS. Accessing the power of Backdrop might require a little tutoring and support and we're here for that. We provide video tutorials, chat support, and regular offices hours. If you get stuck, we have developers that can step in and help you with the hard parts at a very reasonable cost.  
  • Shared Mission: We share your goal of making the world a better place, that why we are active contributors to the Drupal and Backdrop CMS communities. Both are powerful open source tools used by governments, non-profits, and mission driven organizations around the world.
