CrownPeak is a privately held developer of cloud-based content management software. The primary customers of its products and services are company marketers and public relations representatives. The company's flagship product is a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based content management system (CMS).
The company was founded in 2001 as CrownPeak Technology, Inc. and is based in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. According to regulatory filings, CrownPeak has raised "around $12.0M" in three rounds of funding Investors highlighted in the announcements include Sigma Partners, Altos Ventures, and SunAmerica Ventures.
The SaaS-based CMS operates on all web servers and platforms including mobile devices that support WebKit-based browsers such as those found on the iPhone and Android phones. The SaaS CMS business model is focused on enabling non-technical individuals to manage and publish content, as an alternative to the IT-centric model of on-premise web content management. "Since Marketing will be signing the checks, those small sales could lead to much bigger ones down the line - threatening the long-term prospects of the traditional vendors." Web analytics, site-search, and content versioning with rollback are among the features of the CMS. The CrownPeak CMS includes over 60 out of the box plug-ins to integrate with either custom tags or separate embedded UI's representing Web Analytics, Social Media, CRM, Document Management, among other services.

Developed using Silverlight, the what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editing and single-screen dashboard presented by the CrownPeak CMS user interface enables online teams to collaborate in the development and publishing of content.
CrownPeak services include development, implementation, training, support, and consulting.
