Deliver fast omnichannel experience
WE DELIVER VALUE
Candyspace is a Silver Contentful partner, delivering best-in-class digital products that are loved by both your customers and your business. We partner with Contentful to enable you to quickly create and manage content within a single, headless repository, enabling you to rapidly distribute your digital content across multiple channels.
What is Contentful?
Contentful is an agile, cloud-native platform that unifies all digital content within a single hub, structuring it so it can be delivered to any digital channel. Their customer base extends from leading media and decade-long Candyspace client, ITV, to Spotify, Eurostar and Peloton.
Contentful is a headless CMS which means that it is decoupled from the front-end presentation layer (such as your website or app) and other back-end systems (such as your ERP or CRM). Due to its headless configuration, many companies choose to use Contentful as a microservice and as part of a larger composable technology architecture. This approach gives you the freedom to quickly build out your digital technology ecosystem through connecting multiple systems via APIs.
There are many benefits of building a composable architecture. These include:
- Flexibility - Companies can swap in and out various microservices as and when they see fit. This enables you to build an ecosystem of best-in-class platforms and work around any legacy or bespoke technology you may have in place.
- Speed to market - Creating and managing content within a single hub that automatically optimises it for distribution across multiple channels, saves content editors time and negates the need for costly development resource.
- Scalability - Composable infrastructure is readily scaled meaning its use can be grown at a rate that’s right for your business and ensures you only pay for the functionality you need.
Like our digital commerce partner, BigCommerce, Contentful is a key member of the MACH alliance - a community of Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless providers.
At Candyspace, we combine our human-centric approach with our ability to unlock the potential of Contentful, to rapidly deliver optimised content to your audience on their channel of choice.
Contentful has a well-articulated vision for helping companies become digital-first, plus the capability to help them get there.
