Get Back to Building.

Turn your existing beautiful web pages into editable pages. No need to install overkill CMS apps anymore. Add Pulse with copy and paste and you and your clients can enjoy updating websites again.

The Problem.

Here's the thing: a designer wants to do what a designer does best.. design. 
Current CMS solutions and workflows create a time sink, stress and require constant updates.

Lost Time

Designers lost up to 7 hours a week in unbilled time fixing client's sites and running software updates.

Extensive Training Needed

Designers said they spent time training and offering support after the project is live and out of their hands.

Unhappy Designers

Majority of designers unhappy with setup process and page layout tools of current software they use.

* Based on telephone survey of 89 web designers / developers who are in the web trenches making sites everyday.


"I needed to find a way to convert my sites to a CMS, without starting from scratch".

This is a common scenario: retro-fitting an editing function onto an existing site (or new site build). You already use the popular CMS out there but you know the drill with that one and all the headaches it comes with:

1. Styling pages exactly how you want requires hacking it

Pulse truth: "Pulse is hands down the fastest CMS I have every implemented.. this kind of speed is EPIC!"

2. Overkill for just being able to edit a few pages

Pulse truth: "Pulse is so great, because i don't need to train my customers or offer support after the project is live."

3. Hosting anywhere is a problem for speed and security

Pulse truth: "Most of the sites are hosted on shared hosting and run really well. No more update issues and speed lag."

Introducing The Solution.

No unicorns here I'm afraid ๐Ÿฆ„ 
Just a simple platform that puts you, the designer, and your client in the centre.

"What I love about Pulse CMS is, that it doesn't try to be as fancy or clever as possible - it tries to be as easy and straight forward as possible - it saves me lots of time, implementing a CMS with very little learning time.

This CMS is perfect for designers, that don't have (and have no interest in having) the best PHP skills - but need to get a good job, done fast - there's no need to study a new framework.

It is the perfect CMS if you need to add a CMS to a downloaded template, without going deep into the code of the template. It is easy and lets you get the job done quickly."

I think for clients on simple sites this is the perfect CMS. Easy to template. Simple to use. The WYSIWYG is great.

Pulse is a cool CMS especially for designers afraid of coding. U can divide whole site into blocks and update it.

Awesome!! Is it time to leave WordPress? Blocs + Pulse CMS feature could be the best choice for freelancers.
