Unified content management in Contentful makes high-quality content easier
People’s Law School has a very high standard for content. After multiple drafts by their legal content developers, content passes to a plain language reviewer, who performs another check to ensure it’s as clear and easy to read as possible. Finally, it’s reviewed for accuracy by one of a host of external lawyers.
If this legal review process had to happen twice — once for website content, and once for chatbot content — it would be unsustainable. Instead, Contentful allows us to manage a single set of content, and publish it in two places: on a website and on a chatbot.
And it doesn’t need to stop there. We can theoretically produce PDFs or other printed collateral via Contentful. Indeed, we’re using maximum-resolution images in Contentful’s media library in case we go down that path. (Contentful resizes and downsamples images on the fly for delivery to the website and chatbot.)
The lawyers at People’s Law School are thrilled with Contentful as their unified content management solution. “Contentful is fast, easy to use and flexible,” says Drew Jackson, lawyer and project lead. “There’s nothing we’ve tried to do with it that it couldn’t handle. And I’m relieved that when the law changes, we don’t have to update both the website and the chatbot. We change the content once, and it updates everywhere.”
