Tue, 14th Mar 2023

Content management system(CMS) specialist, Contensis, has been crowned Best Enterprise CMS in this year’s People’s Choice Awards, organised by CMS Critic.

CMS Critic is a leading authority for news and insights on content management systems, eCommerce and the cloud. This year marks its eleventh year celebrating the best and brightest in content management. The annual awards are nominated by the industry network and readers of the outlet and recognise excellence across the CMS community.

The UK-based CMS specialist, Contensis, created by Zengenti, was shortlisted among five other big names at this year's CMS Critic's People's Choice Awards, beating Contentful and Contentstack to take the award.

In addition to taking home first place in the Best Enterprise CMS category, Contensis was also shortlisted in Best Headless CMS and Best Composable Solution.

The news follows an exciting period for the organisation after it launched its highly-anticipated Blocks. This new feature enables marketing, digital and web teams to publish part or entire websites with little to no involvement required from development teams.

“This latest accolade demonstrates Contensis’ continued drive to create a composable CMS that works for everyone, no matter their experience or occupation. It exemplifies our determination and passion for delivering a quality CMS, like Contensis, to our customers, and we’re hugely proud to have received this accolade. We launched Contensis 20 years ago and, in that time, so much has changed in the world of content management. Since then, we’ve worked hard as a team to ensure that our CMS remains an innovative solution that enables marketers, developers and IT teams to remain agile,” says Richard Chivers, Chief Executive Officer of Zengenti and co-creator of Contensis.

“A big thank you has to be given to those who voted and placed our fantastic CMS above some of the most well-known and established content management systems on the market today. We’re thrilled that our team’s hard work and ingenuity has been recognised by the wider CMS community, and that our commitment to ensuring that Contensis becomes the go-to CMS for enterprises around the world has been commended.”

Contensis-powered websites serve more than 10 million users monthly in the higher education, local government, not-for-profit, healthcare and manufacturing sectors. Major organisations, including the London School of Economics, the UK’s National Health Service, and the Ordnance Survey, use the Contensis CMS, informs Chivers. 

“Contensis gives you all the benefits of a traditional content management system with the power and flexibility of a headless CMS. Contensis provides a single place to create, maintain and deliver your content. Its content modelling, authoring, and governance features help your teams to create and keep on top of well-structured content. A flexible set of APIs make it easy to use your content in any way you like. It improve developer productivity, and increase content reuse,” he concludes.
