Could you tell us more about the project: what were your needs and the challenges you faced before meeting Strapi?

We work on many projects with a lot of content to administrate. Our projects are eventually handed out to our clients, but we did not have an administration panel that was easy to set up for our dev teams and easy to use for our clients.

So, we usually had to take care of updates for our customers, which were time consuming and did not bring major added value.

Why did you choose Strapi?

After having discussed the information we are going to store with our clients and because that content needs to be updated frequently, we chose Strapi for its out-of-the-box administration panel that can be easily set up. From the Strapi interface, the client can now easily add, edit or remove the data without any of us. This is saving us lots of time and the client is saving money, so that is really a win-win !

Are you happy with your choice?

Yes definitely!

We saw many benefits in terms of time and resources costs and satisfaction in our teams. The client can add more data whenever they decide and they are able to see the updates on the app without having to wait for a new version of their app.

What would you advise to someone who has never tried Strapi?

In our case, the setup was to connect with mLab (now MongoDB Atlas) on Heroku, there are multiple blogs explaining it and Strapi itself have posts on how to deploy to Heroku and use the mLab database so the setup is easy. I think the only concern is to make a good structure for the database so later when the client wants to add new data, it is easily done.

Other than that, the use of Strapi is intuitive and easy to use.
