2. Harmonize content across all your sites

Consistent messaging and harmonized branding across all digital channels is a recurring concern when managing a network of websites.

As part of awebsite factory WordPress project, we deploy a single WordPress theme that ensures visual consistency, while offering content management autonomy to each site manager.

By using the Gutenberg editor, you can also ensure graphic cohesion within pages, reinforcing unity between different sites.

3. Rapid deployment of new sites (Time to Market)

We develop technical solutions capable of duplicating new versions of the reference site much more quickly, thanks to the Multisite functionality on WordPress. These new versions are templatized, ready to be fed by site managers.

4. Multisite function and content sharing

The architecture of WordPress' Multisite functionality makes it easy to meet the need to share content from one site to another.

Examples include a shared media library, legal page content or a news portal. Content sharing is made possible with little development effort.

Thus, WordPress includes in its very structure the ideal foundations for developing a high-performance website factory , designed to help businesses and contributors manage their network of websites on a daily basis. This functionality has reached a significant level of maturity and stability. Combined with the Gutenberg editor, WordPress Multisite is the ideal tool for designing and supporting an effective website factory .
