Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

Adobe Business Catalyst (BC) is a terrific solution for small to medium businesses that are able to leverage e-commerce and seek to have an all-in-one solution. It's less of a fit for larger businesses that will soon scale or enterprise-level websites that have internal and external focus web needs greater than e-commerce.

It's an extremely flexible solution. It can be a nightmare to work with if not properly planned out or fantastic if well thought out. If you have a team and an application owner with a plan it's a great option.

Cons

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • I wish tech support would address issues with scripts, style sheets.
  • It would be very helpful if B.C. partners were notified about improvements, maintenance schedule, etc. instead of spending time researching.

TERMINALFOUR

  • It can be a bit buggy with media library management.
  • The html editor can act pretty wonky sometimes with the html it translates things into.
  • The navigation builder tool is pretty confusing.

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

TERMINALFOUR

WordPress is obviously a fantastic product. TerminalFour was more appropriate for our needs as determined by a team before my arrival. I think WordPress is better and cheaper but going with TerminalFour offered the opportunity to work with a smaller company to whom we mattered

Return on Investment

Adobe Business Catalyst (Discontinued)

  • Faster website deployment
  • Better organization since we can keep most clients under the same umbrella
  • Adobe brand recognition
Jerry Dever profile photo

TERMINALFOUR

  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Happier internal customers because changes are much easier than they used to be and we can often empower them to make their own changes to their websites.
  • For our application owner it's become a huge project that consumes all of his time. Not ideal but it's working for now. Knowledge sharing the more intricate pieces can be really difficult.
