Using the WordPress platform

will result in an 80% impr
ovement in the efficiency of our
company’s

web developers

through the use of
WordPress’ design features such as themes, widgets
and plugins.
A total of 75% of the work done by the developers can be done on WordPress. This
will generate

a

sav
i
n
gs for

the company
of
$2,451,000 over
our
three year

review period
.

The WordPress software script is
a content management system that is
a
completely
cust
omizable
web development platform.

It is built on PHP, a general scripting language, and
MySQL, an open source database.

The use of plugins is
one of the main features that
makes
WordPress so efficient. Plugins are composed of PHP scripts and are “tools to

extend the
functionality of WordPress
.”

They
are
completely customizable
and capable of handling

anything
the company
requires regarding
the website
’s functionality
.

If we would like to display the
company ratings or even the weather report, we can do so with ease. WordPress has a
n existing

library of over 18,000 plugins, and our t
eam can create their own

plugins

quickly and efficiently
.
The WordPress plug
ins are tes
ted to be “bug free,”

so we save on the cost of testing our own
applications and dealing with any faulty ones that make it to the website.

Overall, the ease of use,
customization
capabilities
an
d testing increases the efficiency of our developers.

Devoting

two staff members to WordPress
development
and three staff members to
traditional web development will save the company $737,000 in the first year of implementation,
with costs of $736,000 in the first year. Overall, the project will cost
$
2,049,000 over
three years
including hardware and software purchases of Windows Server operating system and Microsoft
SQL server, and training for the two employees. At the end of three years, the company will save
$
2,451,000 by using WordPress.
