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.

TemplateToaster

  • Advanced designing features and using these advanced features very easily e.g. Bootstrap 3 support that makes flawless responsive templates.
  • Encapsulated all the major designing trends with respect to particular CMS.
  • Optimized code is produced for every theme/template as such the coding standards are perfectly followed by this software.
  • All WordPress themes made with this software pass the Theme Check test.
  • Because of W3C compliance it ensures consistency of websites over the web.
  • HTML5 and CSS3 also ensure better look of designs on small screens.
  • Apart from making web templates, one can make full fledged websites too. TemplateToaster allows making static websites with YouTube video inclusion. It has inbuilt FTP, so that user can easily move its website to the server.

Cons

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • They do not have the ability to create and build custom plug-ins for use on websites.
  • They do not support every payment gateway, they support the major ones, and most others, but if you have some very unusual payment gateway, it might not be supported.
  • The custom web apps were absolutely one of my favorite parts of this system, and it is really a shame that they do not allow them to be used on all tiers of the website, you have to get the web commerce tier to edit and use them.

  • It is not available for MAC operating system.

The simplicity of this platform is the main reason. BC is incredibly easy for first time users and very streamlined for experienced users. I also look at the integration with other Adobe products in my company. Being able to stay completely in one piece of software (Muse or Dreamweaver) for a full design and publish make much better use of my time.

Usability

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.

I have used Adobe support for many of their products. I find that they are quick to respond and present a wide variety of support platforms from forums to online chat. Depending on the nature of the issue I am usually able to get resolution within 24 to 48 hours. With more complex issues I have never had a problem with Adobe dropping the ball.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

The largest competitor in my portfolio is GoDaddy. I tend to use them for larger products or for all inclusive domain registration and web presence. I prefer using BC for most everything due to its simplistic nature. It is a very streamlined product and is easy to add users from my clients as editors and managers. This makes content update and creation so much easier. It also eases the minds of content managers within my clients companies as they will have some control over what goes on the web site. GoDaddy is my go to product for customized web designs, larger projects, and anything that requires server side software not supported by BC. It tends to be more involved and time consuming and less productive for me as a small business. So while I prefer to work with BC there are just some limitations that send me over to another hosting platform.

Return on Investment

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • The CMS has been a great tool to use to close a deal.
  • Assists those who do not have much experience with back end programing.
  • The platform is far more secure because of their closed source code than platforms like wordpress or joomla.
