Welcome Technologies chooses Contentstack to help build the American dream
Welcome Technologies needed a new CMS to help them reach their business goals and objectives.
Welcome Technologies had both an internal custom-built content management system and Contentful CMS, but neither system was capable of realizing their vision for content. They found the support system for Contentful challenging. It was not going to be easy to do the projects and integrations they wanted.
Welcome Technologies wanted a headless CMS and robust APIs to integrate easily with the different sites they were going to launch, and a strong support system was essential. So they started looking at other options. After a couple of months of going through demos with many different companies, they found Contentstack to be the best solution.
The versioning feature has been beneficial. ... I like how fluid it is when switching over to Spanish and then plugging everything in. Because we’re a bilingual site, the language capability is critical, and Contentstack shines in that regard.William Leborgne | Director of Content, Welcome Technologies
Contentstack proved it was one of the most user-friendly interfaces with the potential to simplify integrations for Welcome Technologies and continue to grow with the business.
The onboarding process was easier than Welcome Tech expected. With the help of Contentstack’s support team, Welcome seamlessly shifted everything over to Contentstack in a little over a month. The engineering team also found onboarding straightforward. It was a smooth experience.
Welcome Technologies has seen growth in their ability to produce content quickly with Contentstack. For example, the site includes a section on coronavirus, and those types of changes need to be as dynamic as possible. With Contentstack, Welcome Technologies is publishing 75% faster than with their previous content management systems.
“The versioning feature has been beneficial," said William Leborgne, director of Content. "When a colleague or a freelance editor makes changes, seeing the changes or comparing two versions and having them side by side is helpful. I like how fluid it is when switching over to Spanish and then plugging everything in. Because we’re a bilingual site, the language capability is critical, and Contentstack shines in that regard.”
I’ve looked at more than half a dozen CMSes, and Contentstack came to the top for all the right reasons. The product is incredibly user-friendly. The support team was excellent. The integration with our system was seamless. The engineering team is delighted. Integrations for personalization, AB testing, and all the other bells and whistles are there in spades, so it’s a no brainer.William Leborgne | Director of Content, Welcome Technologies
Security was another considerable aspect for the team since they deal with sensitive information for an at-risk demographic. Welcome launched a banking product that is a native app, and in the future, they plan to integrate Contentstack to post content in the banking app.
When choosing Contentstack, Welcome Technologies’ CTO wanted to work with a big player to improve their security continuously. Contentstack takes security extremely seriously, which is vital for the moment when Welcome Tech connects those two pieces. Recently, Contentstack proved their zeal for security by becoming SOC 3 compliant.
