Use Case | Inside Ellie Mae's Pandemic Pivot
Ellie Mae, the leading cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, faced a considerable challenge in executing their annual conference. Due to COVID-19, Ellie Mae needed to pivot from a live in-person event to create their first virtual conference, Virtual Experience 2020.
Contentstack's headless CMS helped Ellie Mae successfully launch Virtual Experience 2020 in the following way:
- Ellie Mae was able to leverage the content they already had in the system so they didn’t have to rebuild it or go in and change a schema or a database. This saved them a ton a time and made it possible for them to meet their four-week deadline.
- Because Contentstack integrated with whatever was best for the user experience versus re-implementing, Ellie Mae could build in great features, such as commenting, bookmarking, liking, etc., improving the user experience.
- Contentstack's user-friendly interface allowed Ellie Mae to quickly and easily train non-technical users to update and manage content.
