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.

To me Wix is better for slightly more advanced users. A big downside is that it's adpative, not responsive. So the more custom your design gets, the more you will be working separately on your mobile pages. If you want something that truly takes no knowledge of website building, look elsewhere. I also wouldn't implement this if you have a team of direct contributors that aren't website or design people. There's just not enough restriction there, too much power for them to make a mess.

Pros

  • Server Uptime is good
  • Online Chat is good
  • Security is good
  • Technical Service is good
Richard Taylor profile photo
  • Wix allows a lot of flexibility in design. For me as a designer and a brand manager, that's very important.
  • Wix has a lot of the current options for page design, such as parallax, video backgrounds, and the like.
  • Wix code allows us to create dynamic pages, and do custom things previously only possible on a very costly custom-made site.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Some of the features do not work consistently or they are not able to be seen at all times.
  • There are frequent bugs.
  • SEO optimization can be improved.
  • They removed some features that I cannot get back.
  • Form builder applications and plug ins can be slow to set up and slow to load.
  • Cannot customize certain features.
  • Handling the footer section can provide issues.
  • Event application / plug in has basic features but mostly not useful.
  • Paid plug ins don't work well or fast enough.
  • Paypal buttons take a long time to load.
  • Repeater boxes don't work well.
  • It doesn't allow you to copy and paste a section from one website design to another website design, which is an important function for saving time when managing multiple business websites.

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
Wix just has a better repertoire of templates, default design formats for displaying images and video, and a wider control over what I can tweak to make the site truly my own. I love Wix’s simple to grasp user interface and speed with which it works to upload my images. It also contains just more options in templates and plug-ins in my opinion.

Return on Investment

  • Well you can't really beat consistency throughout an entire family of programs. Adobe in pretty much uncontested in this arena.
  • If you are a designer, you will need these programs at some point. It is a depressing fact, but Adobe has the absolute monopoly in the business. If it is any consolation, they make excellent programs.

  • An easier way to solicit information to users, donations, and volunteers. Looks very clean and professional.
  • Strong sense of branding and design
  • When I went to update my site, it took HOURS to make basic style changes across the whole site
