From WordPress To Headless
Before making the leap to a headless system, Petco existed on a WordPress platform. In WordPress, just like in any other traditional CMS, the backend and frontend are tightly coupled and linked so that when marketers needed to change something in their website, they had to ask a developer to build something from scratch.
Plus, as WordPress sites age over time, they tend to get slower. The company realized that the more plugins they added to fix these performance issues, the slower and more unresponsive the site got.
Petco’s pain points before implementing Agility CMS were:
- Couldn’t deploy multiple sites from the same instance
- Old, unresponsive WordPress build
- Difficulties to update content
Blazing-fast Headless Deployment
Agility CMS enabled Petco to centralize all their content and assets in a single hub from which all the different local sites could draw information and asset. Agility CMS provided Petco with an agile platform capable of scaling and evolving with the company’s needs and support multiple sites in different languages with ease.
Improved Editor Experience and Multisite Deployment for 1,500+ Stores
Thanks to Agility CMS, Petco can now build its content to be shared and used across multiple channels or websites. Agility CMS’ reusable components help Petco’s marketing team save time and improve brand consistency by enabling them to share page templates and modules across all of their sites.
