As you’ve likely have already heard, Acquia acquired Cohesion, a low-code site building tool that lets our agency partners theme Drupal 8 websites up to four times faster versus traditional routes.
But Cohesion offers our agency partners much, much more than just faster site builds. Here are a few reasons we think Acquia Cohesion is a game-changer that will allow our partner to win more business, recover margins and deliver more value to clients.
Delivery at Scale with ACSF
When combined with Acquia Cloud Site Factory, partners can now design, build and manage large digital estates with much fewer resources. Spin up new sites based on your specific site type, choose your Cohesion package and instantly create feature-rich, brand-compliant websites. There are also a number of brand management tools built in so you can help your clients be consistently on-brand, even for their smallest markets.
Build Once, Use Everywhere
Acquia Cohesion allows you to move your components, templates, styles, helpers and more from site to site in just a few seconds. For instance, many of our existing partners have built out agency libraries which are then used as a starting point for all new projects. This allows agencies to assemble new Drupal 8 websites in a few hours.
Improved Use of Agency Resources
Cohesion’s low-code interfaces mean that the majority of your Drupal 8 website projects can now be built by designers, content editors and Cohesion site builders. This frees up your valuable Drupal talent to focus on higher-value work such as application development and integrations, as well as increasing the volume of work that can be delivered by the same team. In a competitive situation, it also means you can include more value in the same project budget, making Drupal 8 and your agency more competitive against other platforms
Delight Customers with a World-Class Editing Experience
Cohesion’s page building and content editing tools are favored by clients who want speed, agility and ease of use. With Cohesion, Drupal 8 now has a front end, customer experience that exceeds what other platforms offer.
