About Spark CMS

All CouncilConnect websites are powered by our very own Spark CMS, Content Managed Simply! The CMS has been custom built by our web developers based on feedback from our clients, ensuring an easy to use platform that's been designed in consultation with the end user in mind.

Over 500 websites have been deployed using Spark CMS to date. Over 100 of these sites are dedicated to local government authorities in Western Australia.

User-friendly and innovative is what makes Spark CMS so unique, but there’s also more…

The inbuilt workflow engine handles all your content updates and allows administrators to track updates across the entire website. By forcing content to be approved prior to being published, the workflow engine saves any incorrect information being published and ensures the proper approval process is followed.

Your administrators will have the freedom to create and edit templates via HTML and CSS with the template manager. The template manager gives you complete control on the website templates.

Content channel widgets allow your administrators to edit content within a website template that isn’t part of the normal content area such as the header/side/footer of a website.

When you become a CouncilConnect subscriber, not only will you benefit from exclusive pricing and support, but also the automatic upgrades to Spark CMS. To ensure the CMS offers the most modern user experience and workflow efficiencies, we constantly put the CMS under review to see how we can advance the platform. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to the CouncilConnect initiative.
