What are the benefits of using Silverstripe?

Built on Silverstripe - Metlink required an all-new website to help hundreds of thousands of commuters find public transport information quickly and easily. Many people visit the Metlink site on mobile, often at bus stops or on the move. They needed a responsive front-end and rock-solid back-end, and the Silverstripe CMS helped them deliver just that.
