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.

Webnodes CMS

Good options for creating the online store, such as follow-up of visits, payment management, and ease of viewing--also on mobile devices that are currently being used the most.If you expect to be helped by support in an urgent situation, you will have to be very patient. Unfortunately, the answers take a long time to arrive, which causes time to be wasted and your store is left without a certain function, which can lead to a momentary loss in sales.

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.

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.

Webnodes CMS

  • The unlimited bandwidth package could be available in cheaper packages. It would make life a lot easier for those who can't pay a lot.
  • A better possibility to customize the online store. The best features for this are only available in the most expensive version of the tool.

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.

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.

We didn't actually use another tool. We researched one but didn't use it. Webnodes CMS already offered just what we needed, which was creating an online store easily and quickly. As there is the possibility of payment management and store monitoring, Webnodes CMS was the ideal choice for our objective and we have seen that it is yielding good results, as expected.

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.

Webnodes CMS

  • We created a virtual store with Webnodes CMS that has given us conditions to sell our works, which has earned us a regular income.
  • Increased demand for sales creation with the use of the online store. Now orders previously placed in person or over the phone have increased substantially with the possibility of visiting the online store.
