Optimise your content management with a headless CMS

What is Headless?

A headless CMS is a powerful tool for managing your content in a flexible and efficient way. Unlike traditional Content Management Systems, a headless CMS works independently of the frontend. This means you can manage your content in one place and push it to any channel you want – be it a website, a mobile app, a webshop, a kiosk or any other kind of platform. In other words, headless is the way to go when taking an omni-channel approach.

Why choose headless?

In today’s digital world, it is important to be able to distribute your content quickly and efficiently across different channels and devices. With a headless CMS, you can manage your content in one central place. This makes it easier to provide a consistent brand experience with the same information everywhere. Furthermore, a headless CMS offers more flexibility in designing the user experience, as the frontend is separate from the content system

Different layers

With a headless CMS, the content layer (the ‘backend’) is disconnected from the presentation layer (the ‘frontend’). This means you can manage your content in one place and push it to any platform. The content is sent to the various frontends via APIs, where it is then presented to the user.

Advantages of headless

  • All content for different channels in one centralised environment


  • More creative freedom in the frontend


  • Easier to link with external software


  • Well-designed headless websites are usually faster and perform better


  • Future-proof: when you change CMS or want to introduce a new platform, this can be done without it impacting anything else drastically

Headless or traditioneel?

A headless CMS is certainly not a must for every company, but for some it can definitely be interesting. For instance, when different platforms need to be receive the same information, or when you have a website where there should be plenty of creative freedom in the frontend.  Our Xplorers are happy to investigate if this could be an interesting route for your company or not.
