What We Implement

Not all sites are the same. So why would we use the same CMS?

Blend specializes in content management implementations with a variety of systems and platforms. In fact, we love CMS so much we wrote the book about it. 

Our specialty is content-heavy websites with challenges involving content modeling, retrieval, and workflow. We have a unique ability to fit a platform to a client’s specific requirements allowing us to “cross-pollinate” best practices from one platform to another. Here are a few of the content management systems that we work with.

Flying Squirrels?

Choosing a content management system (CMS) for your website can feel like an overwhelming task. Which is part of the reason Blend Interactive’s Chief Strategy Officer Deane Barker decided to take his decades of web content management experience and write the definitive publication on the subject: Web Content Management: Systems, Features, and Best Practices.

The book is a primer on essential content management topics and gives industry newcomers and seasoned practitioners an unbiased overview of the entire content management ecosystem. 

From this book you will:

  • Learn what content is, how to compare different systems, and what the roles of a CMS team are
  • Understand how a modern CMS models and aggregates content, coordinates workflow, and manages assets
  • Explore the scope and structure of a CMS implementation project
  • Learn the process and best practices for successfully running your CMS implementation
  • Examine the practice of migrating web content, and learn how to work with an external CMS integrator

We are always willing to talk to anyone, especially when it comes to the things we’re passionate about. Drop us a line. We’d love to talk to you about your project. Or, we can have a discussion about content management in general — no project needed.
