Our website has shifted from being a series of pages into a full-blown digital product. This is where Kentico Kontent and Gatsby have really been important. Without that combination, we wouldn’t be able to think about customer experiences the way we have, we wouldn’t be as nimble, and it would be much harder to really improve customer outcomes.
