Frequently asked questions

Squiz DXP (SaaS) is a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) that helps you build, manage and connect digital customer experiences from one central place. A DXP unifies content management (Matrix), site search and insights (Funnelback), customer data (Datastore), and an open ecosystem of integrations (Connect) in a single platform.

Whether it’s websites, portals, intranets, or social media - the DXP empowers organizations to efficiently create and optimize customer experiences across your digital touchpoints vs. managing each one on its own. This makes it easier for teams managing different parts of the customer lifecycle to collaborate and align on the customer experience.

A flexible and open DXP brings together the data, content, and systems needed to deliver customer experiences via API integrations. These integrations could include a CMS, CRM, site search engine, marketing automation, or any other tool that has an API. This means fragmented technology ecosystems with siloed data sources can finally work together.

When your systems, data, and content are connected using a DXP, you can deliver contextual customer experiences to different audiences based on their needs:

- Unlock all of your content through site search - no matter where it lives.

- Maximize customer data from different sources more effectively.

- Personalize web content based on user attributes.

- Ensure brand compliance across all your touchpoints through content workflows.

- Pre-fill forms for returning visitors.

- Ensure content is accessible and meets guidelines.

- And much, much more.

If you are eligible to move to Squiz DXP (SaaS) your Account Manager will contact you prior to your yearly contract renewal. Your Account Manager will present you with a proposal to move to a subscription contract and a plan/schedule to upgrade to Matrix 6 (the newest version of Matrix) and then a plan to migrate to Squiz DXP (SaaS).

Matrix 6 is the next evolution of Squiz’s enterprise web content management system. It enables internal teams to use the product in a much faster, easier, and more enjoyable way.

Matrix 6 has also been designed and optimized for our new SaaS subscription offering.

Matrix 6 comes with a wide range of new features and major improvements that increase efficiency, productivity, and user experience for all. Some of the differences you will see in Matrix 6 include

Intuitive, seamless, better-performing content authoring experience.

- A new page builder experience makes it faster, easier, and more intuitive to create and edit web content.

- Admin UI access for content editors (content editors can now access /_admin. This improvement also enables content editors to perform a similar list of actions they had access to in Edit+ in Matrix 5.

- Inline edit mode to preview changes before publishing.

- Improved experience in editing image varieties. Varieties of image sizes can now be edited directly on the details screen of image assets, making it faster and easier to add and edit image varieties.

- Simplified link management between assets, and improved right-click menu.

- Improved asset right-click context menu, with the most commonly-used asset screens displayed.

- Preview screen tools for previewing different resolutions, testing accessibility, comparing old and new versions, and personalization previews.

Create content once and publish anywhere - regardless of platform or device.

- Headless CMS for distributing your content across all your web properties with a headless and hybrid publishing API.

Build and deliver pages faster.

- Drag and drop components to “design once and reuse anywhere” across all pages and sites.

- The new Component Service will provide a much better way for developers to build digital solutions that contemporary developers will love. Components bridge the gap between headless and head-on solutions. By building independent JavaScript-based components that can be used in traditional web builds that are rendered by the CMS and also used in headless solutions, developers can get the best of both worlds and maximize re-use.

- Asset syncing makes it easier for developers to sync both content and configuration assets.

Flexible and open CMS that's built to handle complexity.

- New Asset management API for easier and faster integration capabilities (through Squiz Connect) to create powerful integration solutions.

- A new REST API that makes it easier for developers to connect and create solutions.

- Support for developers to defer triggers and create secure web builds with CSP headers.
