CDO Magazine experiences surge in user count and organic traffic following its transition to Quintype


“We were facing a lack of consistent and full-time assistance from the previous CMS provider. We also recognized that the user interface was not up to the mark for modern-day information consumption. Additionally, the backend content management interface was also not in line with modern user experience expectations.”

The CDO Magazine team articulated these main challenges to the Quintype team during the preliminary discussion call.

At Quintype, we adhere to the principle that every customer reigns supreme and are committed to providing unparalleled service.
