You can create any new functionality the customer may need from small to full blown apps, and plug it into the CMS.

Build it and Resell It
Businesses or individuals can resell rave7™ and set your own prices. We keep the base price, and you can charge your client whatever you want. In addition to the base price for the modules, there are also opportunities for training and support revenues. System integrators with a proven track record may submit a business plan and get even higher discounts.
Grow Your Business
Once you deploy a system for a client, it opens other opportunities because now you have a valued client that may require additional development or services. With rave7™, you can up-sell your customers Help Desk, CRM, CMS, and the rest of the rave7 platform modules.
Well here's where it gets interesting. The rave7™ CMS does not limit you in any way when it coming to designing a website. We're serious about giving web developers the tools and freedom, to create designs using XHTML/CSS standards as well as ColdFusion code (if required), to take things to the next level.
Yes you can just use standard HTML/XHTML/CSS in your designs, or you can mix in some ColdFusion code directly into your templates as well, no restrictions.
Use a Template
If you rather not start from scratch, you can also use one of our pre-made templates as a starting point, and modify it as you see fit. You can design off line and upload your template to the system for it's final tweaks, the choice is yours..
So you've developed a website but it needs some custom functionality, perhaps it needs to interact with one of the system databases or even a new database that you'd like to add to the system. No problem.
