Michelin needed a comprehensive CMS that would handle hundreds of sites, while being easy to manage and maintain
On the Rebound
After a failed deployment costing 8-figures, they turned to ApostropheCMS.
Around the World
Within two years, Michelin deployed over 165 sites on ApostropheCMS with no end in sight.
With an 8-figure investment into a CMS strategy that ultimately could not handle the demands of Michelin, their project was aborted in search of a better, more robust open source CMS.
With less capital available and a desire for as little financial risk as possible, Michelin needed to find a robust CMS that could handle their needs to manage upwards of 200 websites in dozens of languages.
Michelin’s developers found and started building a few sites with the Philadelphia-based ApostropheCMS open-source GitHub repo.
Two months after developing on ApostropheCMS’s free, open source codebase, Michelin contacted the ApostropheCMS team to have a second set of eyes review their websites before they went live. A relationship blossomed and Michelin contracted the ApostropheCMS team for Enterprise-level support.
Built on Node.js
Tooling Michelin loves
MongoDB, npm, express, among others.
Powerful localization tools
Michelin is using the ApostropheCMS Workflow module to localize dozens of languages across nearly 200 websites from one instance.
ApostropheCMS gives you the factory to build the website and a partner to support you in running them.
Finally, we enjoy a strong support from the ApostropheCMS core team and feel a willingness to scale up with respects to both open source vision and Enterprise-class ambitions.
