Section titled Refactored’s journey with Storyblok Refactored’s journey with Storyblok

A fundamental business belief for Refactored is that clients should enjoy using the tools they’ve invested in. That means that when the agency recommends a CMS, they must be confident the solution is really what the client needs.

Consequently, a deep-dive into the headless CMS market resulted in a short list of just three or four headless solutions. The agency tested them all on one project, conducting a deep evaluation of each solution’s capabilities. In the end, they concluded that Storyblok was a natural extension of their core beliefs and development approach.

Quote from Kile Lindgren, Partner | Solutions Architect at Refactored

The visual editor, instant preview, drag-and-drop block building methodology, and the ability to structure and organize content by taxonomy and folders has been essential to delivering solutions that meet technical requirements in a way that our editors also enjoy.

Over the past several years, they have reshaped the agency to be nearly 100% focused on Storyblok development—backed up by user-centric content planning and integrated UX offerings. This commitment has enabled Refactored to consider how different types of clients might benefit from the best practices and features that Storyblok offers.

Quote from Rob Bean, Partner | Senior Strategist at Refactored

Storyblok has helped us manage the process of upgrading websites in a way that’s less disruptive than in the past. We’ve been able to bring headless components alongside clients’ traditional CMS platforms and migrate to the headless solution on the client’s timeframe, and without the shock and awe typically —associated with a replatforming project.

At the beginning of this year, Refactored launched their first Storyblok-based solution offering, Website Accelerator, a customer-centric process that integrates content planning, UX, website design, and Storyblok.

The process-driven solution shares an underlying configuration with Storyblok, so the time to bring a website to market can be cut by as much as 75%—saving both money and resources.

The Website Accelerator solution also streamlines the adoption of headless CMS by baking in best practices. With nearly 30 pre-built and highly customizable components, the solution delivers traditional CMS features that typically don’t exist in headless solutions.

Quote from Rob Bean, Partner | Senior Strategist at Refactored

Storyblok provides us a solution that meets the stringent, enterprise-level client requirements for security and interoperability with their development and deployment practices.

Section titled A tech stack for the future A tech stack for the future

The agency’s clients rely on them to provide the right technology solutions, the right process, and the right people to achieve successful outcomes across any scope of project.

To exceed those expectations, Refactored provides true end-to-end website design and builds, technical production on provided designs, and enterprise consulting for organizations new to headless and composable solutions.

Although most of their clients tend to build on React-based solutions, not all of them use the same solutions for site building.

Additionally, the team found that by leveraging a composable approach—and leveraging rendering techniques like Static Site Generation (SSG) and Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR)—they can dramatically increase the speed of the sites they build.

While projects and preferences might differ, a typical project stack includes a variety of best-of-breed technologies:

  • Coding frameworks: React, Next.JS, Astro
  • Hosting: Vercel, Netlify
  • Database: Fauna, PlanetScale, Supabase, Vercel DB
  • Search: Algolia
  • AI: Various tools for recommendations and personalization
  • eCommerce: Stripe
  • Chat: Drift
  • CRM: Salesforce, HubSpot, Protech, Microsoft Dynamics
  • Marketing Automation: Marketo, Pardot, HubSpot
  • Security: Sign Sign On (SSO) using SAML 2.0, OAuth 1.0, 1.0A, 2.0, or OpenID Connect

Quote from Kile Lindgren, Partner | Solutions Architect at Refactored

Storyblok has fundamentally changed how we approach website projects. The ability to easily create reusable content structures that allow editors to build and adjust page layouts to their needs is a game changer. Coupled with live preview, our clients can build and deliver content faster with fewer revision cycles than any other CMS that we have implemented.
