Contentstack and Sputnik Digital, a digital engineering agency based in Manchester, have joined forces to serve best practice certification leaders Axelos.

Axelos will use Contentstack to power as part of a programme of digital transformation. 

Axelos develops, manages and operates qualifications which are considered the global standard in best practice across project management, IT service management and cyber resilience.

Its frameworks and methodologies have been adopted by private, public and voluntary sectors in more than 150 countries to improve employees’ skills, knowledge and competence in order to make both individuals and organisations work more effectively.

Sputnik Digital will help in the delivery of its digital roadmap. As part of the project, Sputnik has joined the Contentstack Catalysts partner programme.

“Content and digital experiences for professional audiences need to be of the highest calibre,” said Matthew Baier, chief operating officer at Contentstack. 

“When that audience is as keenly attuned to issues around best practice and IT service delivery as Axelos users, it sets a very high bar indeed.  To ensure the quality of the content, headless architecture means updates and changes are fast, consistent, universal and auditable – and this is what we deliver.”

Andy Nicol (pictured), managing director at Sputnik Digital, added: “As leaders in best practice, Axelos knows the value of online toolkits for critical processes such as quality assurance.

“We are excited to expand the capabilities for Axelos and its consultants, delivering not just better software but also innovative new functionality.”The partner programme is an ecosystem technology and service providers that accelerate digital experience innovation. Catalysts advance the use of a microservices-based, API-first, SaaS headless architecture.

Contentstack recently expanded its Care Without Compromise program to Catalysts in order to provide joint customers the highest level of post-purchase support, creating the first cross-vendor support programme in the industry.

“We chose to become a Contentstack Catalyst because we seek to offer security, scalability, reliability and optimisation, so the MACH (headless) architecture is a natural choice. We build in best practice from the ground up and headless architecture ensures we can offer these points from the very beginning,” said Nicol.

“We have already begun developing a series of joint customer initiatives throughout the Northern region as we embrace the opportunity to re-platform leading businesses in a variety of industries including insurance and financial services.”

Peter Fogelsanger, global head of partnerships at Contentstack, said: “As a Catalyst, Sputnik Digital can continue to exploit the myriad benefits of the headless approach. 

“In partnership with us and our other Catalysts, we look forward to announcing more disruptive, innovative deals throughout the Catalysts ecosystem.”
