What exactly is Contentful?

Founded in 2013 in Berlin, Contentful has grown into the leading and most reputable headless CMS provider on the market. Its client list includes major names such as Spotify, The British Museum, and Heineken. valantic’s customer Mobilezone (previously known as powwow) effectively leverages Contentful too and uses it to manage content creation and publication across a diverse range of Mobilezone brands.

The content management system optimally fulfils the requirements of large projects and complex enterprise setups. It’s an impeccable match for corporate websites, a valuable e-commerce addition, and an asset in professional publishing. Contentful enables different departments and multiple user roles to collaboratively and simultaneously manage content, without interfering with each other’s work. This capability is pivotal for large content teams collaborating across various locations and time zones.

How does Contentful work?

With its API-first approach, Contentful is a powerful CMS, enabling true single-source publishing (“create once, publish everywhere”). Content managers enter text, images, and videos only once and can subsequently (re)use them wherever needed, regardless of the target medium – from websites to online stores to apps. This approach minimizes the time and effort required for modifications. Changes are implemented centrally and become effective throughout. By eradicating errors, outdated content, and unintended duplicates, Contentful pioneers a new era – with positive effects on user experience and conversion rates.

Following the initial setup process, new content can be published entirely without developers or the IT department. This substantially accelerates content time-to-market. Contentful also boasts exceptional scalability – it’s able to seamlessly handle substantial amounts of content without sacrificing performance. Rest assured: As your requirements grow, Contentful effortlessly grows with you!
