Crafter Software enables the creation of rich and engaging websites, mobile applications, and multi-channel digital experiences. Established in May 2013 as a spinoff from Rivet Logic, Crafter Software’s solutions are based on the award-winning Crafter CMS open source project, which was built from the ground up as a modern platform for creating more relevant web experiences through targeted delivery of personalized content. Serving as the lynchpin between enterprise systems and end users, Crafter’s solutions enable marketing, sales and support teams to author and manage content while harvesting analytics and data-driven insights to deliver engaging experiences across all digital channels - the web, mobile, social, and more.
Crafter enables our marketing and web development teams to deliver dynamic and engaging content.
The open source Crafter CMS project (originally called Crafter Rivet) was first conceived in 2007 by the CMS implementation experts at Rivet Logic, a leading consulting and systems integration firm focused on building content management solutions for major enterprises such as Harvard Business Publishing, JP Morgan Chase, The Washington Post Co., and NFL.com. Between 2007 and 2012, Rivet Logic and many of its enterprise customers invested over $5M in the development of Crafter CMS to solve a gaping hole in the enterprise Web CMS marketplace. Legacy WCM systems were built around the idea of managing content on a website. But as the web was evolving to a more social, more mobile, and more personal environment, a new kind of Web CMS solution was required. A new approach. One built around the idea of managing both content and the dynamic experience consistently across the web, mobile, social, and all digital online channels.
Crafter Software enables a truly agile implementation of enterprise web content and experience management -- unique in the industry. We take the powerful ideas of "separating content from presentation" and "de-coupling web content authoring from content delivery" to a whole new level. Crafter Software's solutions are truly modular, enabling Web CMS solutions to be easily crafted specifically to meet each enterprise's particular needs. By separating the web content authoring application from the underlying content repository, by de-coupling content delivery from content management, and by enabling rapid integration with other enteprise content systems, databases, and third-party data sources, we uniquely offer a solution that allows enterprises to truly build competitive market advantage on the web.
By early 2013, Crafter CMS was running hundreds of sites in production at numerous mid- to large-size organizations across a wide variety of vertical markets -- including many Global 2000 companies. With interest in Crafter CMS surging, Rivet Logic established Crafter Software Corporation to meet the expanding needs of both the Crafter CMS open source community and the commercial needs of major enterprises. We innovate and collaborate in the community, and we ensure rock solid solutions are deployed in the enterprise.
Crafter Software provides commercial support, training, and consulting services focused on successful enterprise deployments of Crafter-powered web content and experience management solutions. Along with our expanding global network of partners who provide a wide array of consulting, implementation, web design, and reseller services, Crafter is focused on helping leading organizations build more content-rich, more personal, and more engaging digital experiences on the modern web.
