Everyday Essentials for 50 million Europeans
“Every day, over 50 million European households rely upon our products and brands. Our essentials cover all the household basics, from the morning bathroom routine, to cooking and cleaning. This is why we have merged our products and brands under a single name that embodies our impact and mission: Dayes (Everyday Essentials).”
The challenge: manage and scale more websites with a smaller team
When Dayes.eu contacted WPCS, they were still called Nedac Sorbo at the time, all their brand websites were hosted on a WordPress Multisite setup.
WordPress Multisite has very distinct limitations that all stem from the underlying architecture: all websites are hosted on the same server, utilize the same WordPress installation, filesystem, and database. After a certain scale, the development cycle becomes too complex and the stack too chaotic to manage and scale.
Once these challenges inevitably occur, they are very urgent and existential to the scalability and development of a website stack.
The result is the same for nearly use case: a complex, time consuming development cycle that results in an unstable and unsafe website stack. Product development stagnates and the need for highly skilled developers to simply keep the stack stable increases.
“Launching websites and updating dozens of existing websites was very time consuming in the WordPress multisite environment. That’s why we looked for a scalable way to manage the same websites. WPCS offered the best answer in this regard. More scalable than traditional WordPress hosters, faster than with plugins and more reliable due to multitenancy.” – Jerôme de Groot (Project owner Dayes.eu)
Problems solved by WPCS:
Individual management and improvement of websites prior to WPCS costs too much time, money, and energy. WPCS’ Versioning System and multitenancy solved that.
Due to compatibility issues of WordPress Multisite and a lack of a continuous development process, product development had stagnated. WPCS’ API and complete access to the WP ecosystem solved that.
The WPCS Versioning System
Our multi-tenant cloud platform enables you to create multiple versions of any WordPress product that spin up highly-available tenants (websites) with shared functionality but separate content. This enables you to develop and distribute changes like a SaaS.
- Tenant Snapshots
- Unified development
- Complete control over product
- No-code solution
- Smaller team, less operational costs
What Jerôme says:
“With WPCS, updating and changing WordPress has become accessible to everyone in a reliable way. No plugins or programming knowledge required. You can get started without a software developer!”
