Our developers have work with many CMS platforms, many of the open source systems are free to use although some have a fee as well as prices for module integration. WordPress has a large development community which improves the core functionality very quickly and is a large reason why we find it more user friendly. Word press also has a large plugin directory which increases the development speed of WordPress with features like calendar systems, a wide range of contact forms and other modules which can be altered to your requirements.
Also important is the ease-of-use in the administration area for our clients. We don’t want to hand over a website for you to maintain that requires a BS degree in Computer Science or even much training at all. Many of our clients don’t require any help from us to learn how to manage their website content with WordPress.
