Why BOLT as opposed to open source systems?

The BOLT Reseller Program is a professional services relationship that provides you with a World Class system to offer your clients and the assurance of having a dedicated team available to assist when needed.

A primary benefit to commercial solutions is a dedicated team of developers and support personnel who are available if and when needed, as opposed to a globally distributed "team" of independent contributors with their own agendas.

In production and development, open source is a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details. The open-source model includes the concept of concurrent yet different agendas and differing approaches in production, in contrast with more centralized models of development such as those typically used in commercial software companies.(wikipedia.org).

With open source systems you get access to a free system but you still need technical skills to configure and extend the solution. By definition the contributing "community" comprises different agendas and approaches and as a result a "system" will often comprise a number of independently developed components, each with their own nuances. A typical downfall or risk is that one or more of the modules/components is faulty but there is no update available. This compromises the entire system. There is also a labyrinth of open source license that may or may not prohibit the commercial use thereof.

The most common of the open-source systems are Wordpress and Joomla. Both serve a purpose and have a place in the market but, both require a degree of technical understanding and have their origins as technical systems that require technical understanding. Both will require technical assistance to configure, maintain and enhance.

If it’s peace of mind you are looking for, the BOLT Reseller Program is the solution.
