Contentful is a modern-day solution to content management that doesn’t allow bulky, outdated templates to get in the way of your mobile app design work. Instead, Contentful separates the infrastructure that is so common in CMS, allowing developers to manage their content with code through Contentful’s API. Their core features start with content storage. All stored materials are kept in flexible fields that don't use the “page” model that most CMS rely on. This means that developers can create literally any kind of template they want; nothing is off the table.

Contentful is a modern-day solution to content management that doesn’t allow bulky, outdated templates to get in the way of your mobile app design work. Instead, Contentful separates the infrastructure that is so common in CMS, allowing developers to manage their content with code through Contentful’s API. Their core features start with content storage. All stored materials are kept in flexible fields that don't use the “page” model that most CMS rely on. This means that developers can create literally any kind of template they want; nothing is off the table.

Within the API, users can edit documents in real-time, preview content on all devices before publishing anywhere, and import content from any other source with custom scripts. Contentful also offers digital asset management tools, such as automatic media compression and integration with hosting services. This makes it easier to keep your media where you prefer to store it, and simply import into your Contentful workspace. All users can be assigned different levels of access, so your content can be viewed by all, and edited only by a few, or restricted to only certain teams as needed. Contentful allows creators to integrate multiple languages into a project, utilizing the permissions features to assign an editor, a writer, and a translator at certain stages. This is just one example of how powerful Contentful’s features can be.

Contentful offers an entirely free version of their content management system, with a limited features list, as well as training and professional consultation that can help your team utilize the tools in Contentful in the best way possible. Their customer service team can also help migrate large collections of extensive data from other content management systems if necessary. Contentful guarantees an uptime of 99.5%, and users can upgrade to advanced monitoring packages that bump this guarantee up to 99.9% if needed.
