"Great for updating website content"

What do you like best?

It is a very user-friendly method of having website content edited instantly.

We have used other website CMS to edit content, all of which are not as intuitive as Contentful, so we were really glad our website developer provided us with this software for on-going changes. From updating photos to written content, Contently keeps track of everything - should you need to revert any changes, you can just pick and choose which version to return to and publish.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I dislike is that it is very complicated to figure out how to add widgets and pop-ups from other services we utilize like Constant Contact and MailChimp. Also, when setting up Google Analytics, we continue receiving error messages, but so far Google Analytics has been able to deliver a report - now I am wondering of how accurate this report has been.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are having your website developed, it is always useful to know which CRM they use, Contentful and WordPress are the top two - if you are handed any other CRM option, make sure the person who will be making future changes to the site receives a comprehensive training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The system is very easy to figure out in terms of creating content updates, so long as your website development has set it up following in a comprehensive order, like all tools, the person who initiates using the tool is also the person who sets the president of how this tool will be utilized by the rest of the team. I recommend it over other CRMs.

"Excellent for non developers"

What do you like best?

Contentful has provided me with excellent customization features. This has helped me in cases where I have to forward a set template to my teaching assistants to work further onto it because I set the permission and they can only edit what I want them to.

What do you dislike?

It is not easy to upload images at all, especially when it comes to adding multiple images. It is also not easy to tell when the content will actually be published or how it will appear as it is altered at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not sure if I would recommend this. The solution would be helpful for simpler cases but for complex design patterns, I do not find it the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it to manage projects for my students and TAs, and send out materials for them to further work on. This is a pretty straight forward software but also has a lot of glitches.

"Useful GUI for a web site data model"

What do you like best?

Straightforward interface that is easy for most any team member to use when needed.

What do you dislike?

Markdown text is difficult to read when trying to edit within the GUI. Not awful, but can be tiresome after awhile.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contentful is great if you have what seems to be a special case for data management relative to a web app. We're able to implement any programming language, and that would be a pain with some other CMS options. Our data is intricate and the web app is only used by about 350 users per month, so we'll see how it does @ scale.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Contentful to house our database model and objects. It stores our content, easily delivers info to JSON files, and hooks into S3. Pretty simple to make updates, but, for the complexity of our web app, we have to do a lot of backend work that, often, needs a person to go through and update.

However, we developed an API that syncs content from 3rd party documents that now updates our Contentful instance when content areas are unequal. Definitely useful in that way.

TLDR: Contenful is simple for most end users to get the basics, advanced for developers to use for data models, and delivers data to JSON and servers quickly and efficiently.

"Sleek to use and really flexible to configure"

What do you like best?

The flexibility of configuration, one can say there is real freedom of shape around your data. O also like their pay-as-you-expand mechanics. They give a pretty reasonable free usage limit and you can gradually expand beyond that with small monthly fees. If not for that - we'd probably won't buy the typical tiers. In the sense that we manage sites content and application content there. If it was not for the flexible pricing for sure, we might end up writing custom code and database for the storage. But here the value/price is balanced.

What do you dislike?

Search and slicing the significant number of content pieces is pretty nasty, but they are continually tackling and improving that stuff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We manage three websites data and some parts of our application content there. We were able to provide Marketing team with the easy interface to maintain and build the site. At the same time, we were able to keep design consistency because they can add only the content.

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

It loads pretty quickly and the API capabilities are also pretty good. I like that it is pretty straightforward and flexible. It is a good CMS system to use if you want to work on multiple platforms.

What do you dislike?

No feature to see the overall page structure of the page elements, so there is no way to check the structure of the content inside each row.

It takes a long time to upload changes or even make copies of entire pages. Not a big fan of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's definitely not the best solution out there so make sure to give it a go during the trial period

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used it to manage our projects and compare different work solutions. It is straightforward to use and easy to set up, through just your github or gmail account. It has also made syncing out to clients pretty easy.

"Great product"

What do you like best?

Contentful deals number of valuable functions and also it's extremely wise and also easy to make use of. The truth you could produce your very own information framework as well as information partnerships is so valuable as well as allows full versatility within jobs. They supply a relatively practical cost-free usage limitation and also you could slowly broaden even more with tiny month-to-month charges.

What do you dislike?

Picture uploading could be uncomfortable as well as needs it to be done individually by hand. Web page might be better. It is far better for brand-new tasks compared to for tradition ones.There might be another action in rates for little tasks like the one I typically handle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would gladly suggest Contentful to companies searching for an effective and versatile CMS service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Handling internet site information, internet material and also keeping record declare releasing online. Allows me to make use of the item throughout numerous systems.

"Well-designed for quick start, but tough for beginner programmers."

What do you like best?

Compared to its competitors, Contentful has an extremely intuitive design, making it extremely easy to deploy to deploy a CMS environment/service in an instant. Contentful has extensive API integrations and support. It's design has lots of flexibility in-mind, making it a really good candidate for many

What do you dislike?

Contentful is expensive. A bit more expensive than any of its competitors, and it is tough to encourage early-stage companies/startups to use services like this, despite them being able to move forward products forward extremely quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contentful is extremely flexible when it comes to designing solutions to core products. That being said, I would still suggest taking a look at features and these other reviews to make sure that Contentful has the capability to implement the solutions you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Contentful as a content management system for custom landing pages of micro-campaigns, and to build a few side-project applications that helped us progress with our core applications.

"AplicaciĂłn de Contentful en Iberia"

What do you like best?

Cuando empecé a trabajar en Iberia, un compañero que trabaja para el sector de marketing de la empresa me dio permiso para utilizar la api que ellos utilizaban y estuve probando la aplicación en proyectos personales de páginas web. Me gustó mucho lo intuitiva que es en comparación a otras aplicaciones CMS. La facilidad que te da a la hora de moldear de una manera más simple la imagen de tu contenido online.

What do you dislike?

Quizás para grandes eventos dependiendo del plan de pago que tengas se pueden quedar cortas las peticiones por segundo o por hora que tiene de limite la content preview api si tu empresa no lo tiene en cuenta. Pero claro esto se puede arreglar cogiendo un plan que abarque siempre más de lo que esperas de base.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Id probando esta plataforma de todas las formas que queráis hasta que os encontréis a gusto.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En Iberia se utilizó para administrar las diferentes páginas web que tienen. Por ejemplo darle un toque más intuitivo a la página web de empleados la cual era un tanto liosa anteriormente. La página de reserva de vuelos de la misma, ya que no solamente hace Handling sino que actualmente opera como una aerolinea de vuelos nacionales e internacionales. También tienen una página web de contenido informativo sobre nuevos reglamentos, noticias de la empresa, cursos para labrar tu propio futuro dentro de la empresa.

Creo que en general Contentful puede ser una herramienta muy Ăştil.

"Impressive Headless CMS Service"

What do you like best?

Extensive feature set, good documentation

What do you dislike?

Some technical challenges when integrating

Recommendations to others considering the product

Impressive headless CMS service with good tooling for technical integration with many languages and platforms. User facing interface for managing content is clear and easy to use. Documentation is thorough and support is responsive and friendly. Recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My business has a new website with its content managed by Contentful. Contentful's service has given us the freedom to use our preferred tools and platforms to build the website, while taking away the headaches of creating our own CMS or using a tightly integrated 3rd party CMS.

Content is managed by a number of different people with varying technical skills. The clarity and simplicity of the Contentful features and interfaces makes it straight forward to maintain our content and train new staff in how to do so. In addition, the fine grained user permissions and roles allow us to restrict editing of specific content to certain trusted users. This was a key requirement for us.

From a technical perspective, after initial trial and error and some hiccups, the integration and tooling provided by Contentful helped us get up and running quickly. Contentful's documentation is very thorough and their support very responsive, so any issues we had were quickly resolved.

I would happily recommend Contentful to businesses looking for a powerful and flexible CMS solution.

"Great to publish training modules"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to customize and collaborate on this platform to generate creative content. Good WYSIWYG interface. I love the JSON support to back the data as well.

What do you dislike?

Very bad functionality to be able to edit and re-upload the pre-existing content. The templates are limited and it has a very basic editor.

For the features provides, it's extremely expensive and buggy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although they have a good ideology and layout, I feel that the whole software just needs a bit of overall help.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used to to generate training modules for new employees. It has helped us in reaching out to them by making the process easier and has made the content more interesting.

"Great product that has revolutionised our website"

What do you like best?

Contentful is super flexible from a development aspect, however it is still super simple from the standard content user. The roles and users features are really powerful. We've been able to only show the relevant content types to the relevant users which has streamlined a lot of our previous web processes.

Being able to create your own content types from the ground up has really revolutionised how we approach managing our content.

What do you dislike?

We haven't found a way to create a streamlined contentful development/staging environment. There are options of having multiple spaces but then that would cause adding content twice. There is a preview API however we haven't had a lot of success with it with our current tech stack. However as Contentful is so flexible it is probably more a reflection on us not being able to work out a solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our previous CMS was incredibly bulky and slow. By switching to a the Contentful static site JAM stack we were able to dramatically reduce page load times, increase our conversion rates and save a lot of money on licensing and running costs associated with the previous website.

The previous CMS was written in a proprietary language which made finding people to work on it was very difficult. The flexibility of Contentful has made it easy for us to bring our website in line with the rest of the languages used within the organisation and made it very easy for developers to work on it.

"An easy to setup and use CMS"

What do you like best?

The admin interface is fairly easy to use and understand. It's also well featured and easy to bulk do some tasks. It's great that you can create multiple spaces so that you can have test space for testing data easily and it's easy to switch between. The documentation for using the API is fairly accurate which is helpful for engineers.

What do you dislike?

Their API rate limits are on the low side particularly for the Content Management endpoint. When running a bulk update via their API, we have to throttle the rate quite a bit. I'm not sure if that's more because we are on a cheaper plan though. The admin interface can get a bit cumbersome to use particularly when editing nested referenced objects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A fast delivery and easy storage of content that can be managed by Marketing but be defined by Engineering if need be.

"Delightful for marketers too"

What do you like best?

Contentful markets to devs a fair amount, but the product is pretty great for us end users too. The page hierarchies are super clear. It's really easy to create new pages, and not break everything, and not have to beg your web dev to prioritize your project. Easy to use dashboard keeps everything in control. Also has really good author/user controls compared to other CMS.

What do you dislike?

It's harder to hack together a page with Contentful than it is on Wordpress in the HTML view, but that's probably a good thing, since you won't have marketers coming in and breaking everything :).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great tool for launching custom landing pages and microsites for campaigns (like say, for events). You can easily use a single template then continue to reuse it.

"Great for nonprofits"

What do you like best?

I mostly use Contentful's CMS interface. It's easy for a large team to manage and update. We built our site using components and the content model is well suited for translating those components into content types and pages. We have built two iterations of our site on Contentful. Our developers love building with Contentful's framework. It gives us a lot of flexibility and allows our staff to have more control over content that isn't so dependent on code.

What do you dislike?

There's no out-of-the-box blog solution so we use a third-party blogging platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their customer service can be slow to respond. It would be nice if they had a hotline or chatbot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a nonprofit so we need to have a site that can handle both evergreen and new content.

"Better than no CMS, but lacks a lot of basic functionality"

What do you like best?

Definitely seems like a more developer-friendly tool, and integrates well into our deployment workflow. The modular approach to content is an interesting one, and for certain types of websites it would be a killer feature.

What do you dislike?

From the editor's perspective, Contentful is maybe a bit TOO developer-friendly, as it lacks a lot of the basic features that I look for in a CMS.

While it may be highly configurable, it puts the onus on me to repeatedly ask our development team to add or change things at a platform level, rather than giving me the ability to do so myself. Instead of empowering my team to do more without the intervention of the dev team, it's simply changed the nature of our requests to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your research before you invest time in set up. For a mostly technical user base that can tweak and refine on an ongoing basis, Contentful might be a great option. For an organization with more robust editing needs, it may fall a little short.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We didn't have any CMS in place before, so having one now has made posting and editing content easier for us. The biggest benefit is that the learning curve for Contentful is pretty low, so it's pretty easy for us to onboard new members of the team.

What do you like best?

Managing website details and web product request launching online. A quick shipment and simple storage of material that can be handled by Marketing. It's an excellent tool for introducing customized landing pages and microsites for projects

What do you dislike?

Perhaps for big occasions depending upon the payment strategy that you have, you might be entrusted brief demands per second or per hour that restrict the material sneak peek API, however naturally this can be repaired by taking a strategy that constantly consists of more than you anticipate from the base.

"Easy way to maintain your website"

What do you like best?

Contentful helped us bridge the gap between developers and our marketing team ( the content developers). Our car pool app, PoolY, has recently seen major success and increase in the number of active users recently so Contentful's pay as you go payment plan has been very profitable for us when we wanted to scale up.

We saved so much time and money because we didn't have to write code and create our own data servers for our website. Contentful's API readily integrated with our website and apps' code and we were up and running in a matter of months.

What do you dislike?

it takes a long time for the changes we make in the backend to show up on our live website. This makes the maintenance period painfully long and creates long periods of time when users cannot access our website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contentful is truly a boon for a team of developers that use an array of programming languages. It helps you abstract the your code layer from the content layer to keep things organized and tidy. In my experience, Contentful is great at scaling and handles a huge surge users very well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A Modern, Cloud Based Data Driven CMS"

What do you like best?

I love that contentful makes it straightforward and simple to get started creating data and data entries in no time. I went from signing up to building an app in about 2 days!

While Contentful is simple to start there is quite a lot of depth. I like that contentful is largely platform agnostic and you can implement the data on any platform you want.

Contentful is affordable compared to other products I evaluated which means it is practical for small and medium businesses as well as large and huge.

What do you dislike?

While contentful gives you amazing flexibility, the responsibility lies solely on you to develop your app. There are APIs for content display and content editing, but you are on the hook for developing your functionality.
