GRID CMS is a content management system built for e-commerce companies that are looking for an easy, modern and scalable solution for their business. The traditional CMS solutions such as Wordpress or Adobe Cloud Manager are definitely powerful solutions. The problem is, they were never built strictly for e-commerce customers. Therefore, the experience found in those content managers is often complicated, broken or not always adapted to the customers needs.

Hack no more


GRID CMS has been rethought from the ground up to propose a solution that makes it easy to deploy international campaigns, to reuse content easily, to gather all the analytics needed for specific markets and to deal with thousands, if not millions, of products that are often not available in all markets.

A powerful, yet simple experience

Modern tools don’t have to feel complicated to offer powerful options and scalable solutions. Nowadays, most e-commerce companies often relye on both internal campaigns and with partners or influencers. Therefore, Grid CMS has to be as intuitive to use for a Data Analyst than it could be for a Nike Influencer. To ensure a real ease of use for all of these users, the interface and the overall experience are using common patterns that most parties are used to.

01

Material Design components to add or remove content.

02

3 view modes for easy browsing: List, Grid or Timeline.

Social media patterns to add users to a projects or share projects easily.

Tooling made sexy


Often times, commercial tooling is built in a way that focuses a lot more on the features, rather than how it will look and feel while using it. With Grid CMS, there was no compromise when it comes to the UI. We valued it just as much as the architecture in itself. Why would you say? Because we strongly believe that using a commercial tooling solution doesn’t have to mean functional only. Since GRID CMS was built mostly for e-commerce solutions, we want to also be inspirational, to declutter the UI and make the tool feel fun and easy to use.
