Q: How does Bevelsmith compare with other Content Management Systems like Joomla, Drupal, or Wordpress?
A: We designed Bevelsmith with the small framing store business in mind, so it should be super-intuitive and straightforward to use. There shouldn't be much of a learning curve for getting used to the system and we think we've done almost all of the hard work for you ahead of time. Spoiler alert: nerd-speak coming up. For those of you who are curious or more technically minded, we actually built Bevelsmith on the Drupal platform, so you'll get all of the awesome-ness of a huge open source project that is constantly being improved by thousands of nerds worldwide. However, we don't think you'd ever know it was built using Drupal unless we told you, so don't be scared!
