CushyCMS Beta Launch: Free Invites For TechCrunch Readers

Stateless Systems (RetailMeNot, BugMeNot) has launched a closed beta test of hosted service CushyCMS.

CushyCMS is a fast, simple and free content management system that aims to make life easier for web designers by simplifying content management. Using CushyCMS, web designers can give content editors (for example a client) access to part, full or many pages at a granular level (headings, images, sidebars, etc), enabling them to update or create standards-compliant content directly from a browser without messing with the sites coding.

I sat down with CEO Guy King Monday (Sunday PST) for a demo of the service. The key for CushyCMS is that it’s not a WordPress or similar CMS replacement, it’s a content management interface in the simplest meaning of the term that can be applied to any sort of site. The video walkthrough above or there’s a demo video on the CushyCMS site.

The service opens to the public April 15, but if you want to try it now we have 150 invites for TechCrunch readers. Visit the CushyCMS site here and enter the code TECHCRUNCH to sign up.
