5 Things You Need to Know When Moving to a CMS

Imagine finding an inaccurate phrase or incorrect link on your webpage and not being able to fix it right away. It’d drive you nuts, right? Visitors to your page might be exposed to the error which could negatively affect their experience, too. This was exactly the challenge we faced at HelloSign as recently as a few months ago.

Our marketing website was owned by product, so any marketing needs were tied to engineering and had to go through the formal request process. This meant that making even small edits was a slow process and frustrating for everyone involved. It was a challenge that needed solving. The first big step was choosing the CMS (content management system), and after some shopping around we chose Webflow as our provider.

Seeing as it was our very first time making the transition, we hit up Google search for some good advice.

Unfortunately, we didn’t find a lot of great information. That’s why – after successfully transitioning to a CMS – we wanted to share some of the most important things we learned. We’re a startup making big changes, and there are plenty others like us out there.

We hope you find it helpful!

How Dagrofa Took Hiring to a New Level by Automating Employee Onboarding

Onboarding new employees has always been a cumbersome, dreaded task. The mountains of forms, agreements, and notices that need to be filled out are time consuming and – if filled out manually – can be chock full of errors once completed.

Now imagine the sheer number of onboarding headaches that happen when your company hires thousands of employees a year. That’s exactly the challenge faced by the Danish grocery wholesaler named Dagrofa. With more than 19,000 employees across their three business segments, they solved their onboarding headaches by adding HelloSign’s API to their technology stack.

By streamlining the onboarding process, Dagrofa gets their new employees up and running in the jobs they were actually hired to do with less wasted time.

Dagrofa has been a user of HelloSign since 2016 and uses features like white-labeling, variable signers, and embedded signing to simplify the onboarding process for their new employees.

“Contracts are more efficient with almost no errors, they’re completed faster, employees are better onboarded, and overall there are less problems and less paperwork.” – Daniel Avel Lintoiu, Product Owner for Digital Solutions

The streamlining of their hiring process is an integral part to how Dagrofa has positioned themselves as leaders in digital onboarding.

Read on to learn how they did it.
