Sitekit CMS is a web content management system developed by Sitekit Solutions Ltd, a software vendor producing non-technical web based tools on the .NET platform.[1]

History[edit]

Sitekit CMS was developed by Sitekit Solutions Ltd originally founded in 1989 by Campbell Grant to specialise in computer control systems in the energy sector.[2] By 1994, the company began to focus on Internet, e-business and multimedia solutions. In 1999, the company started to develop a set of software tools to provide complete control over website management which lead to the launch of Sitekit CMS v1, in 2000 at CeBIT in Hanover.

In November 2006, Sitekit CMS version 7 was released, this version focused on neutral natural Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), usability, and website accessibility compliance. In 2009 Sitekit CMS v9 was launched which introduced a ribbon style editing interface and more advanced editing features, designed to give editors a more familiar editing environment and make the software more application like. In 2010 Sitekit Solutions Ltd reported a record year of growth.[3] In the same year Sitekit CMS 9.0 passed Microsoft’s applications testing whilst renewing a Gold-status Partnership with Microsoft, ensuring that Sitekit CMS works on the latest Microsoft platform and providing access to more hosting options.[4] The latest version Sitekit CMS 10, was released in March 2014.[5]
