Pros: Easy to use, simple and pleasant design, stable, reliable and, according to my experience, it is great to promote new communication strategies. Content management through this great CMS. Its attributes mean that there are no barriers between its implementation and the ideas that arise in the work teams.

Plone is a CMS that is worth trying and after you fall in love, you will believe you get the most out of it to boost your website.

At first some people from the team were a bit eceptic about the change, but then seeing everything that this incredible content management platform has to offer, they signed up to work on the project and now, even when they are not from technical areas, They are able to manage corporate portals and personal projects with Plone.

Cons: During the implementation of this new CMS, to manage the content of our portal, we could notice that although there is a lot of information about the platform, there is a lack of documentation. I think that could be a point against.

The learning curve, in terms of management, can be a bit slow. However, if you have a qualified person who can give a good induction, this should not be a problem.

Finally, when talking with co-workers, dedicated to more technical areas, it is considered that the implementation of this CMS in web pages has been slow, but sustained over time. It is expected to increase.

Overall: Infinite, because it is a product that makes content management in the company much easier. Furthermore, given its incredible potential, it has helped to guide positive communication strategies (CEO) for the company. We are happy to have accepted the challenge with plone and willing to continue learning from this extraordinary platform.

Is a very powerful CMS, most specifically it is more than CMS this is a multisite manager.
