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.

ManageWP

ManageWP is a well-suited offering for anyone who manages multiple WordPress properties. It provides peace of mind, dramatic time saving and a bird's-eye look at all of your websites. It might be a bit cost prohibitive for single site users or static websites that don't need constant backups or uptime monitoring.

  • ManageWP could provide better support for WordPress Multisite with the ability to more easily manage individual Multisite properties.
  • ManageWP's security scan offering would be much more valuable if it allowed proactive measures to preemptively combat issues,

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.

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

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
Prior to ManageWP, we utilized InfiniteWP, a free (with paid extensions), self-hosted alternative. We found the interface to be unwieldy, and the paid extension pricing to be a bit confusing. The headache of maintaining the software and server infrastructure to run the platform, overshadowed the cost savings for us.

It's easy to build small sites or large sites and there is lots of templating.

Return on Investment

  • Complete reporting connecting dollars spent on marketing to dollars earned as revenue
  • Faster turn-around on ideas into market-ready content
  • Better service to clients through greater usability in account management

  • Without ManageWP we would have to spend hours manually logging in to and checking on the health of our client sites on a rolling basis. ManageWP automates this process for us, giving us a dashboard of relevant results. This saves us hundreds of man hours per month.
  • ManageWP's "safe update", backup, and roll back features make it very very simple to update site plugins without fear of breaking a site and the hours of work that would result to fix it.
