Pros: I like that this software has multiple stages of approval before changes are published allowing you to be sure that you are publishing exactly what you want.

Cons: I do not like a lot about this software as it is not user friendly whatsoever. You need a lot of training before being able to confidently use this software even using it weekly.

Easy to use and convenient

Pros: Easy to use and convenient. It works well for large businesses with many locations such as distributors or dealerships.

Cons: Lacking in some capabilities such as forms. I think there are some forms but they don't meet all the requirements we need.

We work with a partner and it is a great platform with Mindtree

Pros: It is connected to everything , and we are integrating even more to it. Salesforce, email, and more.

Cons: It's hard to use and not a lot of info docs to make it easy to use. I don't like that it takes a long time to load the work box and a few other features.

Overall: We get a lot of marketing benefit and once everything is connected we will be able to provide marketing ROI.

Pros: It has made content management and the posting process much easier than our previous processes, and has become a central location for all of our online content, no matter which of our sites we are posting to. It has also made the SEO process an easier one, as everything is right there for me as a user, and I don't have to reach out to our IT folks to do much of the work.

Cons: That we have to log into sitecore on a different browser than the browser we use to log into our websites.

Overall: We are able to a lot more on our own without having to reach out to IT for them to do things that we could easily learn to do, but were behind bigger walls before.

Comments: I managed a website from 2006-2010 on the Sitecore platform. I thought it was a great CMS and very flexible. I am not an expert coder but found it very easy to use. Ultimately, it had more features and tools than the organization found necessary for the price they were paying and they switched platforms.

Great tool but can be expensive

Pros: Excellent multisite multilingual tool. Easy to update with a ton of extra marketing features

Cons: EXPENSIVE. Per user license agreement. Needs heavy customizations.

Overall: This CMS is amazing and has a ton of features, but getting it off the ground can be expensive. I am not a fan of the per user license and would rather pay one price and have as many users as I want.

Recommendations to other buyers: Unless you are a huge company, I would probably avoid this CMS.

Sitecore can be great, but all depends on your team supporting it

Comments: We switched over to using Sitecore 4 or 5 years ago, transiting from another web content management system. The transition was a lengthy process, mainly because we had to switch over the look and feel and content of the existing site. Sitecore is a great tool and is very flexible, but it requires more skill and people to maintain then our previous CMS. We enjoyed the previous one, but made the switch because of the capability and functionality available with Sitecore. I would recommend Sitecore, but just as long as the team that supports it has the technical skill and there is a well thought out plan for how it should be configured.

Pros: Because Sitecore is essential just an online platform that is a .net application, you can set up and configure the system anyway you want, and get as granular as you want with the permissions. The system is real flexible and if you can think of it, the system can most likely do it! It is a more advanced system then some of the other CMS out there (which is also a con).

Cons: You need a real concrete plan for setting up your CMS, everything from the templates to how you want users to edit the pages. There is a lot, so it takes a lot of planning and forward thinking. You also need people with the right skills and tools to maintain and configure the system. It is a more advanced system then some of the other CMS out there (which is also a pro).
