Kadanza Core

All of the Kadanza functionalities revolve around Kadanza Core, a personalized and branded Content Management System (CMS). It can be used by internal and external users, to share brand guidelines, and host strategic background information. Kadanza is a powerful platform that presents the right content to the right user at the right time to ensure that your brand is followed accordingly.

  • Document your brand strategy
  • Share visual identity guidelines
  • Create custom workflows
  • Enhance user engagement
  • Manage permissions and more!

We have the following elements on the pages:

  • Launchpad menu: A list of all the spaces you have
  • Logo: The space's logo (usually the brand logo)
  • Main navigation: Allowing easy navigation to the different sections in the installation
  • Avatar: Click here to visit and edit your profile
  • Editor mode: Edit the page content and configure the component elements


Kadanza lets you easily activate extensions, such as Assets and Layouts, to add extra functionality to your installation and get the most out of it. Provide brand assets and templates to activate your brand across as many channels as possible.


Kadanza supports different components, each with its own unique properties to provide the content most efficiently and match your brand guidelines. Components are found on pages as described in the Interface section above.


Thanks to Kadanza, individual stakeholders enjoy rapid access to relevant brand information. The information required can vary, depending on whether you’re an employee, an external agency, or a freelancer. Kadanza can be tailored very specifically for each role.
