Ellie Mae Increases Content Delivery and Decreases Development Costs with a Headless CMS

For years Ellie Mae had been using WordPress and switched over to Kirby CMS, which is a flat-file CMS. Unfortunately, Kirby CMS did not enable direct access for stakeholders to make updates. Instead, it required stakeholders first to submit a ticket with the development team. If you needed to correct a typo or make a change to a piece of copy or post a blog, all content updates required a development ticket.

Since migrating to Contentstack's web content management system, Ellie Mae achieved the following goals:

  1. Version control has given Ellie Mae peace of mind. If content is accidentally published live, it can be rolled back to a previous version instantly, with a click of a button.
  2. The CMS’s intuitive UI made onboarding stakeholders a breeze. Business users are able to delve right in and make content updates with little to no prior training.
  3. Being able to setup and develop in multiple environments (e.g. staging, production, etc.) has allowed developers great flexibility in building and testing before committing to any live deployments.
  4. The ability to schedule publishing has freed up early mornings for one of Ellie Mae’s junior web developers. She no longer has to wake up at the break of dawn just to publish a new press release on the website because she can schedule it days or weeks in advance.
