Contentful Reviews & Overview

What is Contentful?

Specializing in headless CMS, Contentful is a feature-rich platform that molds content based on varying devices and platforms. The solution comes equipped with a centralized console, so all requirements can be accessed from a single point of truth.    

From creating to publishing, Contentful’s easy and intuitive interface makes it possible even for those who aren’t tech-savvy to develop content that will be compatible across any device or dimension. 

Leverage further thanks to APIs, so even external applications which need support from a content hub that’s dynamic and scalable can elevate existing digital experiences.

Best UI/UX

The separation of our content and content-editing concerns from our presentational concerns has been a tremendous advantage. The team responsible for managing the data can work independently from the team responsible for development, and multiple methods can be used to present that data to our organization's clients. This flexibility has enabled us to present data to vulnerable people in different formats, including automatically generated leaflets and digital signage in waiting rooms."

  • Contentful has made it effortless for our organization to separate the responsibilities for some of our web applications, allowing development to work independently from content management.
  • As a non-technical organization with staff having varying levels of experience and comfort regarding technology, the ease-of-use and user-friendliness of Contentful's UI has been a significant benefit.
  • The only missing feature I can think of is the ability to batch webhook requests.
  • Currently, a webhook request is fired for each update made within a window of time, resulting in excessive build minutes when rebuilding static sites.

Easy to use CRM

We needed a simple CMS to use in the rebuild of our entire platform, and after evaluating other headless CMS options, we found that Contentful met our needs. Additionally, Contentful demonstrates excellent company ethics, which is important to us."

  • Contentful is great for everyone involved in creating a website, from API integration to content management, whether technical or not.
  • It is highly effective and user-friendly.
  • Personally, I enjoy the fun snippets/questions that pop up while waiting for a page to load.
  • A back button would be useful for navigating between versions when editing content.
  • Sometimes, when tweaking content, it's necessary to go back a few steps to a previous version between the last publish and the new edit, and not having a back button can result in loss of creativity.
