Glide Publishing Platform is proud to announce it has been chosen by The Times and The Sunday Times as the digital Content Management System technology partner for its world-leading education brands the Good University Guide, and Parent Power.

Glide is the cloud-native headless SaaS CMS geared towards the needs and challenges faced by publishing and content businesses, and frees publishers from the commitment and cost of building or maintaining a back-end digital publishing system.

Glide CEO Denis Haman said: "We are immensely proud to be continuing our work on these amazing publications, which give vital information to parents and students. The Good University Guide is the definitive guide to UK and Irish universities and has been helping students make critical decisions about their education for nearly 25 years, while Parent Power gives unrivalled insight into the best primary and secondary schools in the UK.

"Glide has been helping produce these two amazing brands for over a decade, so it is very satisfying to continue the journey. GPP is tailored to the very high demands of modern content businesses and the unique demands of high-quality data-driven publishing - both which sit at the heart of the Good University Guide and Parent Power."

Glide's highly flexible API-driven architecture will integrate with print and digital platforms, and allow Times & Sunday Times development teams to more quickly and easily build immensely detailed products for their subscribers more quickly and simply.

"Glide lets content businesses focus 100% on their audiences and revenue strategies. Our expertise and deep understanding of the challenges modern publishing companies face means we are a natural fit and able to bring significant added value to our customers," Haman explained.
