Not Another CMS? Those were our initial thoughts too

We were intrigued by the shift to modern CMS. But we found very few Headless CMS worked well for marketing websites. The more we talked to people the more we discovered a growing list of challenges. Ones we felt could be tackled with Contento at the core.

What do we believe?

We believe that high growth companies need a modern CMS

We believe that growing companies are searching for a solution that is not WordPress. Many are turning to the emerging category of Headless, but the existing providers are simply not meeting the needs of these growing companies.

What do you want?

You can have a beautiful design and blazingly quick load times

There does not need to be a trade off here. We found that in many instances there was. With a Headless CMS architecture you can create a beautiful bespoke website without compromising on performance. With Contento you can achieve both.
