The service provision is good the accounts customer service is poor so I would struggle to give BC a better than average review, if only they could offer customers a better accounts service then the value would be much higher.

Cons

  • They do not have the ability to create and build custom plug-ins for use on websites.
  • They do not support every payment gateway, they support the major ones, and most others, but if you have some very unusual payment gateway, it might not be supported.
  • The custom web apps were absolutely one of my favorite parts of this system, and it is really a shame that they do not allow them to be used on all tiers of the website, you have to get the web commerce tier to edit and use them.

  • BITRIX does not provide multilingual features to the user-defined contents, although Bitrix does provide multilingual capabilities on system UI specific stuff. For example if our site is publishing company news then BITRIX does not provide an out of the box feature to implement this in different languages.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 10 answers
Actually with Business Catalyst there is no renewal; once you are a partner, you are a partner for as long as you like. It is an investment in your business not simply a product you purchase...and as an investment in partnership with Adobe, both are committed to each other's success.

Usability

Adobe Business Catalyst9.7
Based on 4 answers
Overall it is a "plug and play" interface. The majority of the work is done in other software interfaces. Managing billing, user roles and custom reports are all that you need to manage in the actual BC user interface. For my business this is an incredible benefit as I have to leave my preferred software less.

Alternatives Considered

More reliable; more integrated tools

I have developed some small web sites in Joomla but the problem is that these kinds of CMS platforms are very easily hackable.
