How CloudCannon helped

Xtendly now builds their client sites in a fraction of the time on CloudCannon. They now spend more time on their competitive advantage, beautiful design.

Clients are much happier on CloudCannon. Training clients to use CloudCannon takes minutes instead of an hour. Once they’re trained they actually update content themselves.

Xtendly developers ran through the CloudCannon getting started guide and were building client sites on the platform days later. Junior developers on their team are quickly onboarded. Now they only need to know HTML/CSS instead of PHP, MYSQL and Wordpress.

Custom small business websites used to take us two weeks to get live. With CloudCannon, we can spin up client sites in days.
