A look at how Brightspot's products work and solve the content challenges for its customers.

What’s the business pain point we address?
Let’s start with the fact that the global eCommerce market reached $3.5 trillion by the end of 2019, and 100 million consumers are predicted to be shopping using AR by 2020, according to Gartner. There will also be voice search with households adopting new in-home smart devices and mobile shopping steadily taking over as the preferred way consumers want to shop. All of these are exciting ways that brands can engage with their customers—but it requires an eCommerce strategy with content and user engagement at the center. On the road to growing audience and customer engagement, brands rely on digital experience platforms that incorporate content marketing, personalization, digital publishing and SEO. Let’s also remember that companies need data to drive decisions, which means analytics have to be built into the content management platform.

How does Brightspot approach this problem?
The Brightspot Content Business Platform is naturally headless and front-end agnostic. It excels in helping companies take their complex set of proprietary data sources, multiple CMS solutions, digital experience platforms, lots of enterprise applications and marketing tech software and creating a bridge that brings harmony to the back-end. Next, Brightspot makes it easy to create any front-end experience, enabling control over the brand experience and the personalized customer journey, no matter what device or channel they choose.
