Company Overview

The Arvada Center produces is a major non-profit arts and culture organization in Colorado, USA. It produces at least seven theatrical performances a year, several concerts in its outdoor amphitheater, and hundreds of art education classes for children and adults.

They also have three galleries within the premises that exhibit local artists as well as traveling exhibitions, collaborations, and permanent installations.

Challenges with Custom-built CMS

Overall, Arvada’s content management system needed a major overhaul. Their custom-built CMS caused slow content editing and an updating process that did not allow multiple users. Their CMS severely hindered their ability to scale as well as to deliver relevant and engaging content to their growing audience. 

Increasing Demands of Today’s Website Visitors

Arvada’s old CMS simply couldn’t keep up with the increasing demands of today’s website visitors. The platform was a monolith that had several issues. For starters, it didn’t allow third-party integrations and had a lagged visitor experience. This CMS also disempowered content editors who couldn’t create or edit content fast enough to stay relevant and up-tp-date. 

Eventually, Arvaday turned to Agility CMS to solve these issues. Agility CMS hybrid headless platform enabled their content editors to seamlessly build fast digital experiences. It allowed Arvada to finally integrate with as many third-party software as needed for their website. Agility CMS gave Avada a platform to build a clean, attractive front-end that integrated ticketing purchasing software.
