Adobe Business Catalyst

The key question to a client would be to ask if they want to be able to do their own web site site maintenance without the need of software. The added benefit of the CMS is that it also comes with the CRM, e-Mail campaign capabilities, reporting and much more.

Pros

  • Blogs are one of the best ways to generate new content and gain organic rankings with search engines. Business Catalyst's built in blog engine allows users to have their blog resident on their website instead of having to maintain to two sites. This helps to keep the website fresh and builds SEO.
  • Business Catalyst provides a comprehensive Email Marketing module. Users can create and schedule email series. BC also allows for other modules to be placed within the email so that as you update content on your website you are also populating your email newsletter.
  • Although not a feature of Business Catalyst itself, there is a great community of BC partners that support one another. The community shares their knowledge and successes as well as their trials and tribulations. The community happily welcomes new partners without condition or judgement. Through the knowledge shared partners can learn about the platform itself, site building in general, tips on working with clients and how to build their own business.
  • Business Catalyst support is excellent. Being able to chat with support in real time while you are talking a client through a problem is a great asset.
  • The Web Apps module is a powerful feature which allows users to add content to the site while locking in the design. Users simply fill out a form and the information is added to the site perfectly formatted.
  • The ability to replicate sites allows partners to reproduce a successful site thereby reducing build time and increasing productivity and profits.

Cons

  • The blog module could be improved so there is more functionality and more freedom for easy customization.
  • Multiple files upload into the Media Downloads module would be a great feature to have.

  • Very difficult to assess additional room for improvement, as we are early in our experience.

Usability

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

We prefer Adobe Business Catalyst over WordPress. Adobe Business Catalyst websites are more secure and you don't have to update plug-ins. Saving our clients in cost over time.
Debra Scarpa profile photo
I personally have not done any side-by-side analysis between other platforms, our decision was not based on which platform could do the job we required, our decision was based on which company could deliverer a customized platform for our needs and unique challenges. Experiture was our choice then and is our on-going Partner with future client projects.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Offering a solution to clients that need an in-depth eCommerce platform
  • Positive: A deeper understanding of the power of CRM
  • Negative: A new requirement to learn and support the platform
Victor Campos profile photo
  • Its pretty simple... without the Experiture Team and their ability to customize their platform, share their knowledge, we would not have gotten the results we did on several campaigns. Such as targeting 350 prospects and getting 42 Face-to-Face appointments resulting in 21 written proposals ranging from $21,000 up to $390,000. Needless to say our client was thrilled with those results!
  • Speed-to-market was critical for another client who needed to penetrate the Pharmaceutical industry. Working with the Experiture Team, we created a customized 7-Step multichannel program that delivered many new business opportunities to our client, including becoming a preferred vendor for one of the largest US Pharmaceutical Companies! BTW, we did it all in less than six months.
  • How it all started... Prior to working with Experiture, our 7-Step process was "manual". Looking back nine years ago when we created our 7-Step Program, we never would be able to get the results we do today without the Experiture Platform, it would be virtually IMPOSSIBLE.
