Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

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.

Considering the product is geared toward higher-education, the potential customer should ask about tech support, ease of set-up and end-user needs

Cons

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • Better drill down of the reports & analytics feature.
  • Better integration and clarity with the CRM (Customer Relations Management) section.
  • More selection of HTML5/CSS3 Responsive templates.
Hudsen Smith profile photo

  • I used to have an issue with the 'Browse...' button on the initial 'Insert/Edit Link' interface, but that's already been fixed/resolved/improved.
  • I think the reporting interface could use a facelift - at this point you can pull out CSV files and manipulate them in Excel (which works well), but providing something more visual for displaying system-wide data/reporting would be great (I believe there is something in version 10 that addresses this, but we're not yet migrated over to that version).
  • I think a visual template editor (with drag-and-drop capabilities) would be a great addition to this product. Something that allows for reshaping CSS DIVs, drag-and-drop of page elements (in HTML5/CSS3 and/or for XSL functions).

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.

More reliable; more integrated tools

Before using OU Campus Content Management System we were using Adobe's DreamWeaver suite for creating and maintaining web pages. The core web development environment was cumbersome to set up. Non-tech people also had trouble understanding how the web works and how web pages are created/maintained. OU Campus Content Management System solved all problems for us.

Return on Investment

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • 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.

  • Increased satisfaction with user experience. OU Campus has made it easier for us to address problems when they arise, making our website more efficient.
  • Role-based control. Our old CMS made it very easy for users to change fonts and colors on their sections, which was very detrimental to the overall brand. That's not a problem anymore.
  • Reduced training times. OU Campus is so easy to use, I've been able to cut training times down by half.
