Elastic’s Move to Contentstack from WordPress Speeds up Development Process by over 500%
Elastic's old WordPress CMS was clumsy, slow and had a tendency to crash. There was no staging area and the production site ran on a completely diferent system, so once edits were complete, all the steps had to be repeated on the production server. Because Elastic had two domains, that meant they had to efectively perform each step four times every time she needed to publish content.
Elastic hired Contentstack’s services to manage the migration from WordPress and successfully accomplished the following goals:
- Swapped out an inefficient staging process for a simple, one-step system that’s completely integrated and ready at a moment’s notice. New pages now take minutes or hours, not weeks or months.
- Removed dependency on third-party template developers. The Elastic team can now keep development moving and create new pages by relying entirely on its existing staff.
- Created greater flexibility, while at the same time making it easier to add, alter and remove content. Contentstack’s interface provides the flexibility needed and is so easy that new users can instantly use it with little training.
