Ayla Networks Saves $50k Annually with Headless Content Management Solution
Ayla Networks was using a disparate system and process to manage its digital experience, which included WordPress CMS alongside the professional services of a digital agency for updates and changes. The architecture and content structure of WordPress didn’t align well with the website’s format, making it difficult and time-consuming to navigate, locate pages, or find assets. Employees didn’t have a staging environment to preview content before it went live, which made publishing a nightmare.
By moving to Contentstack headless CMS, Ayla Networks’ team achieved the following things:
- It made creating, updating, and managing content very easy with tools that anyone – even business users – could use to make changes to web content. This eliminated the cost, concern, and bottleneck of having to rely on highly trained technical staff.
- The new platform’s architectural structure provided peace-of-mind. By decoupling content management from web servers, the website would remain operational even if Contentstack were to ever become unavailable.
- Contentstack’s professional services team made the migration painless. By sparing internal developer time, resources were freed-up, thus enabling the team to invest in fine-tuning content and improving SEO.
