Leica Microsystems appointed fastfwd to design and build an app showcasing their Confocal imaging technology. fastfwd produced a beautiful iPad app, originally running on the WordPress CMS. With the release of Contentful, the limitations of using a traditional website CMS to serve content to a mobile app became obvious. The app was switched to Contentful and benefits were seen immediately
In addition to the simplicity and reliability advantages of moving to Contentful, the app has gained a significant improvement in performance. Load time has been reduced to less than half of what it was with the WordPress CMS.
