The publishing platform for media companies: Glide

By Press Gazette

Glide Publishing Platform (GPP) is a publisher-ready, cloud-native content management system (CMS) for publishers created by publishing industry professionals. Glide removes content management obstacles and lets you focus on what really matters – content excellence.

GPP enables publishers to move their technology resources to the things that matter – the unique products their customers love – rather than wasting time and money reinventing a CMS.

Glide is an enterprise-grade SaaS platform which gets you off the CMS maintenance merry-go-round.

It is not a generic starter CMS like WordPress or Drupal which need endless and frustrating development efforts to make them fit for purpose for content businesses, editorial users and – most importantly – their readerships and audiences.

Why should publishers choose Glide over WordPress or Drupal?

Glide says: “We give professional content operations the peace of mind and tools to build fast, iterate quickly and adapt to a fast-changing landscape. Your CMS is not your product  your content and your customer interaction is, be it a website, an app or an Alexa skill. It’s about readers and writers, and making that link as easy as possible. That’s how content businesses grow.

“We sweat the content management side of things so you can focus on what matters to you – your audience.”
