Freedom CMS

The only thing I believe Accrisoft Freedom is not as well suited is for large e-commerce sites. Accrisoft Freedom actually has an E-commerce module and can do products and online sales, however if this is the majority of what your business does (or your clients' businesses), I would recommend an E-commerce focused CMS.
For almost all other circumstances I can think of though, I would recommend Accrisoft Freedom - ma and pa shops on up to a corporation.

Webflow

Webflow is well suited for creating landing pages for SaaS products, professional service portfolios and marketing websites. The CMS can create highly customized and engaging interactive blog posts, case studies, and brochure pages. Webflow is limited to 100 static pages, so on sites that require a lot of content it is best practice to generate most of them through the CMS, which can host 30 separate collections and 10,000 dynamic pages. The Webflow eCommerce platform is best suited for small boutique sites that need a highly customized UI, but have limited products. For subscriptions or more than 50 products and variants a more robust solution is probably a better choice. A few CRM and digital marketing tools are easily integrated into Webflow, and are necessary for large projects because the email form system is very basic.

Pros

Freedom CMS

  • Hosting and maintenance is taken care of. Due to it being proprietary software, everything is built to work together.
  • Simple to use. Basic functionality for websites is built in without having to dig through thousands of potential options.
  • Development is straightforward...no backend languages required. So if someone wants a unique layout for a portfolio, it's very simple to add a new content type and build the new layout using basic html and css.

  • Fast layout design
  • Feature-rich prototyping
  • Low barrier to entry (don't have to have extension web experience)

Cons

Freedom CMS

  • Their preview setup for reviewing page changes prior to pushing them live is not good. You basically have to push things live to see how they will look, then go back and tweak it, while the changes in progress are live on the site. They need a sandbox, or a better preview feature within the backend so you dont have to keep pushing changes live to test out functionality.
  • Integration with outside tools is non existent. Instead of trying to force people to use their modules or features it would make much more sense to more easily integrate with leading tools in niche spaces.
  • The UI is pretty old. It could use a big refresh. Things like drag and drop builders and functionality should be standard these days. This is also a plus for non tech savvy users as it keeps their page structures to what works without letting people tinker. But if you want to tinker and be a higher end user Freedom isn't the best bet.

  • Technical support is a joke. Even at higher tier plans it's not real business support. The major reason to consider not using Webflow is that if something breaks, you're on your own.
  • Advanced functionality can be a challenge for even experienced users.

Webflow is very easy for a beginner to get started with and achieve good results, but to achieve an expert level of understanding requires experience and some web development knowledge. HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript knowledge aren't required to use Webflow, but an expert will know BEM class naming patterns, be able to create reusable elements and design systems, and add 3rd party integrations that require custom code.

This rating is based on personal experience only. I believe majority of people would say their support is top notch & 10/10. The only reason I am personally am giving it lower is because I consider my self a much more advanced user of Freedom than their typical Solution Provider developers. Because I am advanced, I troubleshoot my own issues pretty in-depth before I even contact Accrisoft support. Therefore sometimes I feel it takes longer to get the researched & specific answer I need vs. a simple support question would.

I haven't had to engage them from a support perspective; however, there is a considerable user community for tips/ideas/troubleshooting and the like. I believe the Pro plan supports additional resources but we didn't find that the cost justified the outcome. Overall the need for support has been relatively minor.

Alternatives Considered

Freedom CMS

In all honesty, we have been moving away from Accrisoft Freedom due to its lack of customizability. We as an agency generally prefer open source solutions since our client base primarily consists of those looking for a more custom solution that can be built off of in the future. While yes, these tend to need more care and attention, they have benefited us more.

Better customization, every Wix page looks like every other Wix page.

Return on Investment

Freedom CMS

  • This was the first CMS we had at our company so hard to say positive or negative impact.
  • Prior to this CMS there was a static site that html files had to be ftp to a company to have the site updated. So from that standpoint it made updating the site much less expensive.
  • Compared to a tool like Wordpress this is much more secure and easier to manage, but since we outsource that portion of it to the company that built the site we dont realize those gains.

Webflow

  • Webflow has sped up our design and reiteration stages to create a more agile development environment.
  • With Webflow hosting we can provide websites that are easier to update and maintain than other platforms, while being very fast and secure.
  • Webflow eCommerce is a good alternative to other platforms where a high level of customization is required in the design, and product catalog needs are basic.
