Pros: I enjoy the ease of use that Hippo offers. Prior to my current position I had never used a CMS before and I picked up Hippo within a week. I also appreciate the dedicated customer service that we have received so far.

Cons: We are currently using Hippo 10 and we have a constant problem with the CMS freezing. In addition, this version of the program seems pretty limited in terms of templates.

Pros: Ease of use, and features

Cons: Sometimes difficult to edit changes

Overall: I have been using HIPPO for close to 5 years now and am very pleased with the product. The use and versatility of the software is amazing. I have used many other products in the past but none can compare with HIPPO given the relative low cost of the product, and second to none customer support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Buy it

Pros: Nothing at all

Cons: Absolutely everything

Overall: Hippo was extremely difficult to implement and to do anything an ordinary CMS would do, you basically have to build new components, which is a difficult and counter intuitive process. It takes way longer to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in Hippo than it would in a normal CMS. Hippo is definitely not designed for the user, but rather for developers.

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Hi Brooke, thanks for your review. I understand where you are coming from (a very bad implementation by implementation partner). HeC team didn't start as they could have and as most our clients do work with Hippo CMS: a tool that increases marketing agility and puts marketing in the driver seat. I do feel that the first set of issues will help the UX tremendously. On top of that I have sent a video with other UX extensions that are available to HeC and I would like you and the team to review. Let's talk! Have a great day! Best Stefan

Cons: Images are a hassle.

Overall: I've been using Hippo for about a year now and some parts of it are easy to use and others are more difficult. After we had components added, it accomplished more.
