Arc Experiences Suite
Create bleeding-edge content & commerce experiences at enterprise scale, operated with 100% SaaS ease
Best-in-class tools for content creators
Whether you’re a merchandiser, home page producer, marketer or all-around content manager, Arc's Experience Suite marries low-code flexibility with ease of use. Deep integrations with the rest of the platform allow you to build rich digital experiences that include multimedia assets, commerce catalog data, live video content, and more.
Technology your development team demands
Arc provides a flexible hosted platform for site and omni-channel experience development combining React.js-based development with a modern serverless architecture that integrates with any APIs you can throw at it, and a CICD blue/green deployment system.
Easy onboarding meets enterprise customization
In Arc, site performance, SEO and accessibility are a forethought, not an afterthought. Make use of Arc’s out of the box components to launch new sites quickly, or customize in whole or in part. Arc includes a synthetic testing framework and RUM monitoring that makes understanding and improving your user experience a snap.
Cloud-native and fully-hosted — right to the edge
Architecture, site monitoring, CDN and origin servers — the teams and infrastructure needed to run large media and commerce sites is significant. Arc’s Experience Suite reduces your total cost of ownership while ensuring high availability. In a difficult hiring environment, you can keep your best resources focused on user-benefitting improvements, rather than keeping the lights on.
Bring focus to your user experience
Cast concerns about operations and table-stakes features aside, and delight users with the experience they deserve
Turnkey meets customization
Arc's Experience Suite ships with PageBuilder Themes. Far from your typical theming engine, platform-supported components — everything from site navigation to content rendering to advertising to checkout — all can sit side by side with custom-built components and layouts. Update styles and deploy changes across multisite networks with a click. Or launch sites that you custom-build from the ground up. Arc supports the full range of customization options.
With average availability of over 99.99% around the world, Arc serves some of the worlds largest brands to over a billion unique visitors every month globally. Enterprise-grade operations, monitoring, scaling and performance are what we do so you don’t have to.
The full experience stack
For most large media and commerce businesses, the cloud typically ends at the last layer of delivery, managing the CDN. Arc has partnered with Akamai and AWS to ensure performant delivery anywhere around the world, and manages delivery as a seamlessly-integrated part of the platform. Access to logs, monitoring and alerts ensure that while we manage the overhead, you’re not left in the dark.
Integrated synthetic testing and real-user monitoring
RUM data and synthetic testing, brought by our partner Catchpoint, ensure that you see what your customers see — and can take action. Seamlessly integrated into the platform, you have access to performance metrics on day 1.
24/7 global support
We know how important your site is to your brand, and are staffed around the clock and around the world with specialist engineers to ensure you have the support you need, when you need it. We also make it easy for your team to help themselves. With the Arc Learning Center, documentation and access to a community of Arc developers is a click away.
Accelerate your go-to-market plans
From buildout to launch, Arc reimagines enterprise timelines
Platform-supported building blocks
With hundreds of pre-built components that cover use cases from media, to enterprise communications, to marketing and B2C eCommerce, you can start building your site easily, regardless of industry. Arc Blocks are maintained and updated by our team, ensuring a constant flow of new capabilities while leaving you in control of what your users see. Launch microsites while saving your development team for big projects — or use Arc Blocks as a base to accelerate development.
Performance and SEO, built-in
Nobody notices if you get performance, SEO and accessibility right — but your site will fail if you don’t. Luckily, Arc Blocks are built for performance and easy discovery from the ground up. Arc continuously optimizes site performance against the latest industry and search engine standards. We meet WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards and offer i18n support around the globe.
Web SDK to accelerate development
At enterprise scale, some things need to be built custom. Arc is designed so that customization doesn’t mean delaying your go-to market plans. Our Web SDK and Design System ensure that your dev team can meet your brand’s requirements, while still launching beautiful sites quickly. Libraries for video, checkout flow, user identity, paywall and other complex site elements help you launch quickly (or bring your own).
SDKs for mobile device & OTT apps
Nothing beats the engagement of natively-developed apps on mobile and connected devices. Arc isn’t just focused on the web. With our headless APIs and native SDKs available for all major platforms, supporting Arc content, video, and commerce features within your mobile apps is a cinch.
Customize without compromise
Even if you build a site on Arc from scratch, Arc delivers the same great business features and cloud operations. Business users can manage your site and content through Arc's sophisticated site editor, and your company continues to benefit from Arc's turnkey operations of rendering and delivery.
Accelerate your business
A low-code site platform that puts the power in the hands of your content teams
Integrated content & commerce
Arc's site management tool is seamlessly integrated with Arc's Content and Commerce Suites. From photo galleries to live video, product catalogs to personalized recommendations, content creators benefit from drag-and-drop ease. Best of all, these features extend even to custom-built sites.
Complete flexibility meets ease-of-use
Good user experience can make the difference between fast, iterative content updates — or a ticket to the IT team. Arc's low-code editor ensures that your business users, from homepage producers to marketing teams, can create content without the dev team. Layout changes, design tweaks and new content, completed with a click.
Built-in A/B and content testing
The top content and commerce experiences evolve based on data from continuously-running experience tests. Arc provides built-in audience segmentation for whole-experience testing, allowing content teams can create and resolve tests themselves. Integrated content testing brings the level of testing down to individual headlines, CTAs or product placement.
Put an end to offline content collaboration. With Arc, multiple users around the globe can collaborate in real time on the same page, campaign or template. Merging capabilities combined with separate drafting and staging areas ensure that what actually gets published can be previewed and approved, even as the collaboration continues elsewhere.
Integrated workflow management
With integrated workflow and task management, ensure that your most important content is getting the right eyes on it before sharing with the world. Arc's workflow engine is built to keep things moving: with push notifications to popular corporate chat platforms and mobile approvals workflows, enterprise control does not need to be the enemy of speed.
Publish instantly or on a schedule
Arc ensures that whether you're publishing a single update or a complex change across hundreds of sites, publishes happen predictably and on schedule. We manage the particulars of cache clearing and multisite operations so your content creators can focus on delivering updates to your users.
