Frequency Design software section.

Custom built software called: Yantra.

I've custom coded a Content Management System called "Yantra CMS", that is website editing software, it is responsive, mobile friendly and will work on any mobile phone or tablet, and completely custom coded in the latest Laravel framework using PHP7. Yantra CMS is available to have bolted on to your existing website or integrated into a website I have designed for you. The modular software can be connected to a website to give you the power to manage and update your own website content. Yantra CMS uses Bcrypt hashing for storing user passwords, it uses the latest graphical user interface technology, making the screens easy and intuitive to use for a beginner or an advanced website administrator. As I have coded this product from the ground up I can tailor it to your specifications or build you your own bespoke CMS software, for more information visit
