ACMS – A headless CMS by Awave
We are the creators behind the ACMS – a system dedicated to making the lives easier for administrators and users of systems like Cornerstone. The idea for ACMS came when we saw a gap between what companies wanted to get out of their systems and what the systems can offer.
We want to make your life easier
ACMS is a cloud service provided by Awave that enables easy content creation and editing within Cornerstone.
It’s an add-on to the Cornerstone platform focused on improving its usability and flexibility. ACMS makes it possible to add new functionality in a seamless and straightforward way inside Cornerstone. With ACMS you can add almost any functionality you wish to Cornerstone, totally integrated with APIs and secured with Single-Sign-On.
No technical skills are needed with the modern and user-friendly administration interface. You can even customise it to better mimic the workflow used in your organisation. Access permissions can be controlled by already defined groups in Cornerstone or manually set in ACMS.
Why you should use ACMS
Not only does the ACMS simplify the editing process, it creates the possibility of adding custom functionality to Cornerstone.
Create highly customisable welcome pages, dashboards or intricate systems for handling internal processes, making the most out of your data.
Attractive, mobile responsive custom pages
Create custom pages that are both attractive and very easy to maintain. You can add any custom functionality you want such as a newsfeed, an FAQ section or why not a highly personalised dashboard. It’s easier than ever before!
Display custom content on any page in Cornerstone
The ACMS unlocks the possibility to post custom content to any page within Cornerstone. Add a help function to complex pages or display custom components on a page of your choosing.
Create custom functionality
With the ACMS you can create advanced structures for handling and processing your Cornerstone data. Using Cornerstone’s APIs, data can be retrieved, processed and then written back into Cornerstone. This gives you the option of creating custom functions such as self-service portals and complex approval chains.
It has never been easier to administrate your Welcome and Custom Pages.
Find your pages using the search and filter functions and set permissions for who should be able to see them. You will no longer need to know HTML and CSS since you can build dynamic Welcome and Custom Pages using predefined templates and blocks. Just drag and drop your blocks onto the pages and edit them in an easy and intuitive way.
Create your own blocks of different types and usage areas. Add content blocks with text, images, links and videos, widgets to show your tasks or tiles to provide quick links to other pages in Corner- stone. By setting permissions for who should be able to see each block you can create up-to-date and interesting pages adapted for your employees.
The administration interface

Through this interface you can handle pages, functionality and other custom solutions in an easy way.
