Webpression is a web content management system (CMS) developed by Create IT. Content is stored in a database which is then used to construct web pages as required. The CMS controls who can edit what, and keeps content separate from design so that it is easy for non-technical users to maintain site content. Webpression software controls the storage and retrieval of data from the database.
