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).

Company History[edit]

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[1][2][3] Investors highlighted in the announcements include Sigma Partners, Altos Ventures, and SunAmerica Ventures.

CMS Capabilities[edit]

The SaaS-based CMS operates on all web servers and platforms[4] including mobile devices that support WebKit-based browsers such as those found on the iPhone and Android phones.[5] The SaaS CMS business model is focused on enabling non-technical individuals to manage and publish content,[6] as an alternative to the IT-centric model of on-premise web content management.[7] "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."[8] Web analytics, site-search, and content versioning with rollback are among the features of the CMS.[9][10] The CrownPeak CMS includes over 60 out of the box[11] plug-ins to integrate with either custom tags or separate embedded UI's representing Web Analytics, Social Media, CRM, Document Management, among other services.

CMS User Interface[edit]

Developed using Silverlight,[12] the what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editing and single-screen dashboard presented by the CrownPeak CMS user interface[13] enables online teams to collaborate in the development and publishing of content.[14]

Company Services[edit]

CrownPeak services include development, implementation, training, support, and consulting.[15]

Recognition[edit]

In 2011 CrownPeak was nominated a Finalist at the American Business Awards for Best Product Development team.[16]
