Kentico Cloud has dramatically simplified the work of our content editors. In addition, the headless CMS approach has streamlined our output, allowing our team to send news and blog content to newly created channels as the ISM organization grows.

—Nicholas Meehan, Chairman, ISM Berlin

The Institute of Sound and Music (ISM) Berlin sought a fresh, modern online presence with full mobile support to replace their existing website. They wanted to better communicate the objectives, goals, and events associated with their non-profit organization founded in Berlin.

The Challenge

ISM Berlin required a content-focused, easy-to-use content management system, which would be future-proof for additional channels, such as exhibition display screens, whilst also offering preview and multi-language support.

The Solution

Content First Mindset

Kentico Cloud was the natural choice for ISM Berlin, as it allowed the team to work on content from the beginning of the project, which ensured the design and build worked with it. With Kentico Cloud at its heart, the website built by Squareball Digital serves as the hub for communicating the goals, news, and events of the institute.

Integrations Everywhere - Typeform, Stripe, and Mailchimp

The website was developed with the ASP.NET MVC framework using C# for page rendering. For the front-end, the team used HTML5 and CSS3. They also integrated Kentico Cloud with Typeform for web form submissions, Stripe for credit card payments, and Mailchimp for newsletter signups.

Extensive Increase in Visitors, Sessions, and Conversions

Despite the relatively quick design and build cycle, the content-rich result includes news articles, donation CTAs, and Mailchimp signups, which have resulted in a huge increase in visitors, repeat sessions, and conversions.
