Meet Actum

As a widely recognized implementation and consulting partner with over 26 years in business, Actum empowers organizations to outperform the competition with their digital platforms. Based in the Czech Republic, with additional offices in the Netherlands and Germany, they offer comprehensive services in managing experiences, commerce, business processes, content, and data at scale. 

Actum specializes in complex international implementations involving dozens of languages and millions of SKUs. They offer a full-scale service that includes identification of business needs, UX/UI design, and content migration. Their team has extensive experience with API-first integration layers, microservices architectures, and back-end integrations. 

What are they about?

From humble beginnings to digital leaders 

ACTUM Digital’s origins trace back to July 1996 in the Czech Republic, when university freshmen Jan Havel, Petr Chaloupka, and Ratibor Líbal founded the company with a spirit of curiosity, initially focusing on multimedia services like PowerPoint loops and interactive shows for trade show exhibitors.  

This small venture, starting in a modest, windowless cellar room, quickly adapted to the burgeoning internet era, shifting its focus towards web design and dynamic website development by the late 1990s.

Over the years, ACTUM Digital evolved into a leading digital agency, embracing new technologies and market demands, which enabled its transformation into a major provider of innovative digital solutions and services across Europe, renowned for its expertise in managing complex digital experiences. 

Today, Actum has a strong record of success with 100+ satisfied B2B, B2C, and B2B2C clients such as Christie’s, METRO AG, Uponor, CONRAD Electronic, Schott, LaLorraine, Allianz GI, Societe Generale, and more. 

Trust, leadership, and partnerships are at the heart of Actum

At the core of Actum’s values lies a profound commitment to people – their team members, clients, and partners alike. They trust their people to make the right decisions and stay loyal to the higher goals, they trust the clients to build mutually beneficial relationships, and they trust partners to provide the best technology that delivers value from day one. 

Embracing leadership as a guiding principle, Actum takes the responsibility to lead both their employees and clients towards success and better lives. In addition, Actum thrives on the essence of partnerships – they believe that building strategic partnerships where everybody wins and prospers is the way to have a lasting impact in the world.

Partnership in action

Over the years, a strong partnership has flourished between Actum and Kontent.ai, benefiting numerous successful business leaders, such as Billa. Currently, Kontent.ai and Actum are working together on a major project for a Swiss manufacturer of mobile and industrial filters. 

Stepping into the forefront of innovation, Actum has not only cultivated a history of successful collaborations – it has also pioneered groundbreaking solutions. Actum has developed the Actum Headless Accelerator, a cutting-edge product that streamlines Kontent.ai implementation and reduces costs while utilizing the latest technological advancements. 

A win for a leader in clean code  

Using MACH architecture and Kontent.ai’s headless CMS, Actum helped build a fast website for an industry leader in solutions supporting developers to generate clean and high-quality code.

Faced with the challenges of a legacy CMS, the business recognized the need for technological evolution. After careful deliberation, they entrusted Actum with the implementation of Kontent.ai’s headless CMS, drawn by Actum’s deep understanding of the platform and a certified development team. The transformation has been substantial, resulting in a dramatic cut in CMS and website development costs. The new headless solution has streamlined both development and maintenance processes significantly. 

The benefits extend to the end-users too, who now enjoy a swifter, smoother website experience with enhanced load times. In essence, our headless CMS has delivered an 80% increase in website speed and a 35% reduction in development time and costs, marking a milestone in user experience and operational efficiency.

Digital transformation strategy for an expert in filtration solutions

For a leading Swiss manufacturer, Actum is now crafting a digital transformation strategy with Kontent.ai’s headless CMS at its core, selected for its flexibility and seamless integration across a diverse digital ecosystem.  

Initially, the client’s growth and scalability were hampered by outdated legacy systems. In close collaboration with the client’s main players, Actum is deploying the versatility of Kontent.ai to centralize content management, enabling uniform content distribution through various channels, including web, mobile, print, and more.

Even in these early phases, the transition towards Kontent.ai, along with the integration of other technologies, is forming a streamlined ecosystem. This approach is already simplifying content workflows, eliminating redundancies, and minimizing manual effort.

As the anticipation builds for a full-scale launch next year, a more fluid user experience is already apparent. Thanks to a more cohesive content strategy and a robust, scalable digital framework, substantial improvements in conversion, sales, and profitability can be anticipated.
