Crownpeak Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
Crownpeak, the only true cloud-native digital experience platform, offers a suite of powerful tools that deliver the industry's fastest time-to-market across web content management, optimization, governance, and privacy UX. Crownpeak helps brands quickly create and deliver digital experiences that build trust and maximize customer lifetime value. On top of its powerful CMS, Crownpeak includes built-in personalization and testing tools, on-site tag and performance monitoring, and content governance. As the leader in customizable privacy experiences compliant with global privacy regulations – such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) – Crownpeak provides the world's only API-based consent-as-a-service system, able to optimize progressive consent across all devices and channels.
In November 2019, Crownpeak signed a new partnership with data privacy management platform WireWheel, creating a new full suite of powerful California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) privacy tools ahead of the regulation's January 1, 2020 implementation. The partnership brings together Crownpeak's leading consent solutions with WireWheel's expertise in the area Subject Rights Request (SRR) management, a critical CCPA requirement that is often challenging for companies to operationalize efficiently and securely. Crownpeak will incorporate WireWheel's SRR capabilities within its consent experience platform – the Universal Consent Platform (UCP).
The partnership with BEACON will extend and improve the external-facing consumer experience of consent-giving within Crownpeak's Digital Experience Management (DXM) and Universal Consent Platforms. In addition, BEACON will work with Crownpeak to extend its business practices horizontally, into ToS and all other forms of EULAs, and will also become Crownpeak's premier partner for production efforts on this initiative, which make custom systems for companies that go beyond check-box compliance and redefine the global standard for consent-giving best practices.

The acquisition expands Crownpeak’s Digital Quality Management offering by adding new monitoring and consent solutions that are essential for websites and applications to comply with privacy laws and programs around the world. The year before Corownpeak merged with UK-based ActiveStandards to provide clients with the only cloud-first DXM platform that features built-in DQM. The combination of the two companies created a platform that transforms the way brands communicate, relate and connect with their customers.
