Adobe Business Catalyst

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.

Ingeniux CMS

This is a CMS solution that uses ASP and now XSLT and ASP.NET MVC environment, so make sure your servers are Windows based. Also, be sure to speak about audits to your CMS environment, this can save you time, money and energy if you intend on developing anything custom in the future. The more prepared your environment, the smoother it is to use this powerful cms.

Pros

  • Analytics: I am able to see on multiple levels traffic, clicks, and most importantly search terms for improving SEO. The reports are easy to generate as well as read, especially for small inexperienced business owners.
  • Marketing: When using the BC platform businesses are able to link up easily with Adobe Marketing to automatically send out emails and newsletters. Its a very smooth and painless process.
  • Online Editing: This is probably the best part of BC. Once a design is approved and launched on the platform, my clients do not have to contact me for small content updates. This frees me up as a small business owner to concentrate on design, new clients, and larger projects for existing clients.

  • Ingeniux CMS is great for a freeform organization of your content, because it abstracts away all the confusing elements you'd find in most CMSs and just gives you the raw tools to build out your content.
  • Ingeniux CMS has a very powerful PageBuilder tool that allows both customers and developers to create powerful, versatile templates with a large palette of components and widgets your users can use.
  • The ease of integrating static code into the CMS is a definite advantage over other systems.

Cons

  • Multi Client Management: The dashboard for managing multiple clients as a reseller is a little difficult to get to. There is also no very easy way for me to manage multiple clients at once. I have to log into and out of individual client accounts to do billing or management.
  • Lack of Server support: There are certain server protocols and languages that are not supported using BC. For example I cannot build a custom php database and upload to BC. I am required to use their tools.

  • User Interface. It could use a refresh.
  • More online resources. The most recent Admin manuals, training or how-to videos/screencasts, etc.

Adobe Business Catalyst is our go-to web CMS and, until something comes along that is a lot better, we're going to continue using it to develop our lead-generating websites.

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

More reliable; more integrated tools
Nancy Sheridan profile photo
IGX has came a long way and is going even further. Once they integrate more self-support for developers, integrate with other languages and provide more detailed specific training, they will stack up to the leaders, Drupal and Joomla. IGX is on their way, I know product integrity is their main focus and as long as they keep that notion, their success will continue

Return on Investment

  • As someone who uses it on behalf of other clients, our ROI with BC is definitely positive. We needed a mid-range CMS without huge licensing costs to satisfy mid-range clients who have some dynamic needs but doesn't need the expense or liability of enterprise level products. Without it we would have lost possible customers or taken bigger hits on projects because of the costs involved with satisfying their mid-level needs
  • Our clients are all usually very positive about the BC platform and are able to use it themselves which lessens our Support time/cost.
  • To use the Web App element,. which we do on almost every site, you need to pay for the highest plan. This brings along with it many features most of our clients would never use. A more basic plan with that Web App capability would be a big improvement on our costs.
