Adobe Business Catalyst

Adobe Business Catalyst is an absolute rock-star for companies that want an all in one solution, who have limited budgets and/or little technical expertise. It will scale well and can grow with your company. It is more complex and more flexible than something like Wix, where your options are heavily limited, but less open than WordPress where you can use plug-ins and custom code to rebuild how anything works. So it is a nice area in the middle.Adobe Business Catalyst would probably not be a great solution for companies who want absolute control over their website and everything in it and have highly experienced technical resources to build out whatever they need since not every area of the website or server can be modified.

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.

  • We get a lot of attention from Feedvisor to help us grow our business.

Cons

  • Need to be able to build a relational database inside BC
  • Need to be able to easily reference outside links in BC
  • Cancelling a website isn't always easy

  • There's always room for improvement even in a great company... It would be great if we can have our system fully integrated with Feedvisor. For example, repricing Refurbished & Used conditions in addition to New.
  • Dashboards that tailor a bit more to your needs.
  • We would love to have the ability to 'Reprice' multiple products in 1 shot (without needing to import a file).
  • We would also love to be able to somehow have the actual shipping cost on the product based on previous shipments (pulled from Amazon's API) to tell us what the average shipping rate is for the product.
  • Suggestions that Seller Central give us to be given to us by Feedvisor - so that we're doing everything in 1 place.

The support provided by Adobe is excellent. Though the knowledge base, forums, blogs and online chat questions most all answers can be found. In the event that you are unable to find an answer or you have a unique situation simply post a question to the forums. These forums are regularly monitored by Adobe and its users.

Alternatives Considered

Business Catalyst outperforms other CMS systems out there. Because it's a hosted content management system maintained by Adobe we have to spend less time worrying about server setup, maintenance, and security and more time building better websites. We also don't have to worry about system updates and upgrading to new features as these happen automatically. Performance also excels on Adobe Business Catalyst compared to Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla. In all, Adobe Business Catalyst, with it's predefined functionality allows us to build powerful websites more efficiently then the competitors out there.
