Agility CMS

Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

Curata

I liked Curata, but it depends on the use case of how it will be used as to how effective it is for someone. If you are trying to curate content it works great. Had I not been so put off by the issue mentioned earlier I would have given more effort to learn the CMS, so I am not sure how effective it really is.

Pros

  • File management within the CMS is extremely helpful as a hosting/uploading tool local to our web pages and content.
  • Ability to clone web page content across mutli-language websites takes only a few clicks, and translation can be performed easily based on default English content.
  • Ability to post shared content and link content to categories for easy organization of content on the web - post once, and serve the content up on the live site in multiple places.

  • Allows you to curate content and narrow your search parameters to pretty specific areas.
  • It learns your selections and overtime serves up better and more relevant content.
  • It works very well with WordPress, it integrates smoothly and allows you to share content on the fly with their Chrome plug-in.
  • Curata's support is great, if you need them they will help out quickly to resolve your issues.

Cons

  • Simplification of uploading files would be ideal - where all files are located in the Media & Documents section rather than uploaded directly to Shared Content modules. One home for all files helps us keep track of what is uploaded and what is not.
  • Better copy/paste handling of content from external programs (cleaning Word document formatting, etc.), similar to handling by Word Press and other simplified CMS would be helpful.
  • Greater control over global content such as headers/footers, multi-language implementation, etc., would allow our developers more flexibility and reduce our time coordinating with Agility support and using BOH.

  • For me the product worked great for what I needed it for, I no longer needed it and was a few days past their renewal date (you have to cancel either 60 or 90 days before the end date of the contract) and they would not work with me. They took the stance of, "Too bad, so sad." They offered me their CMS along with their CCS for this last year, but we never fully used it and was turned off by the lack of customer service initially in this situation...especially after it was a matter of around 10 days or so that I was late.
  • Having to keep reconnecting LinkedIn would throw me off at times.
  • Sometimes the article I was trying to post to WordPress would get hung up and I would need to get a hold of support to help clear the system.

For all of the features we loved when we signed on like the microsite and search capabilities and also their customer service, we will very likely renew with Curata. We also really like the evolution we have seen of the solution, just recently a new integration with Marketo (also a vendor of ours) was announced which will be very beneficial to us in optimizing our email newsletters

Support

Agility CMS9.0
Based on 1 answer
Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Agility offers a balance of simplicity and capability that other platforms don't offer. User-friendly platforms like Word Press do not offer our company the ability to fully customize our site based on our goals, but more adaptable programs like Drupal do not offer the support resources to simplify the structure of our site with pre-existing modules or professional development to meet our needs.

We closely considered Rallyverse before deciding on Curata. Rallyverse had superior social sharing capabilities, but Curata's microsite and email newsletter features plus the infinite content source and feed search capabilities far outweighed what Rallyverse has to offer at this time. We are very happy with our decision

Return on Investment

  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.

  • I would say neutral for us, but more so because of how we were using it and it being a stop-gap fix for us.
