  • Quote from Gert van Vliet, Managing Director, Touchtribe

    The way Storyblok differentiates between Stories and Blocks is very powerful in practice. In addition, it is very nice that it is possible to create a folder structure within the CMS, something that is certainly not standard in every headless CMS.

TimeMoto used to be part of Safescan, a company that makes tools for managing employees. But, they realized they had their unique product and services. That's why they decided to be independent in their operations. For this reason, TimeMoto needed a separate digital platform. This decision brought upon the following challenges:

  • Creating an appealing and modern platform: Time Moto needed their own brand identity to be a genuine part of the conversation with clients.
  • Integrating a reliable technology stack: This approach would help manage the platform from different angles. Additionally, it would ensure the website's enhanced performance.
  • Customizable storefront implementation: TimeMoto needed a reliable storefront to drive better sales and enhance UX.
  • Internationalization: The company supports time management for B2B clients in different countries. Thus, finding a solution that could address factors like currency or VAT rules was essential.

Storyblok enabled the company to build their website using future-proof technology architecture. In the beginning, they considered Prismic and Contentful. Yet, Storyblok was the perfect fit to fulfill TimeMoto's new digital landscape.

  • Touchtribe connected BigCommerce as an eCommerce layer. The solution ensured that new storefronts function without interfering with existing structures.
  • To build an agile website with flexible templates, the team leveraged Storyblok’s composable and reusable content structures.
  • TimeMoto’s content editors appreciated Storyblok’s Visual Editor. They could preview created storefronts immediately and had better control over the content.
  • Storyblok lets TimeMoto manage many languages in one place. To do so, they leveraged the built-in localization features. This made their international pages consistent.

TimeMoto was aware of different location-dependent factors. They needed to deal with such aspects as currency, VAT, and time-tracking rules. With Storyblok, they could show data that matches their clients' locations. This makes the user experience fit the local laws and needs. Today, TimeMoto's platform operates in 8 countries.

The company faced another major challenge. Handling tax and VAT calculations were hard to manage manually. The initial idea was to go for a hosted checkout. Touchtribe decided to go headless with the checkout as well. Thanks to this, they could meet all the requirements for tax calculations.
