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.

Wix

Wix is especially well suited for a person who is not familiar with building a website. It can be used by kids. It is very well equipped for small businesses who want to have an attractive, eye-catching site. Also, it is great for e-Commerce. If you or your company requires a unique website that is professionally done and will attract B2B or B2C clients with a higher price point, you may want to higher professional web designer instead of using Wix.

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.

  • Wix provides new users with templates so that you can really get a site up and running within an hour or so.
  • Wix publishes a daily blog that teaches you how to use their website as well as other digital marketing skills such as SEO.
  • If you're willing and have the time, you can customize your site down to the last detail.

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.

  • Wix seems to require a lot of resources as the site gets more content. My site is fairly basic. A few pages, a handful of graphics, and some text. But editing the site is much slower than I would like. I have fast internet and have used multiple browsers and computers, but it's still considerably slow.
  • Support can be difficult to reach. I had an issue when I very first signed up and all I could do was submit a question on a forum (no phone #, no email, etc.). Then the response I got was an answer through the forum. This was inconvenient in my opinion.
  • They could improve rearranging strips. Sometimes it seems to cooperate and move all elements in the strip with it. Other times the background moves but leaves all the elements in place.

Wix is quite easy especially if you use pre-made templates. Getting into the advanced editor can be trickier but still much easier than manual site-building.

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.

Wix provides a free hosting option for students that, as long as they display the subdomain, they can continue to host their own site for their portfolio without subscription fees. Squarespace, while providing similar ease of access and site-building tools, does not provide a free tier. Adobe XD (and previously Adobe Muse) allows the ability to create UI design-centric web pages but is not as user-friendly/is less accessible.

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.

  • Since launching my Wix website, I've seen a noticeable increase in client inquiries.
  • Managing my blog is much easier with the Wix app, so I spend less time on this.
  • Because everything Wix is online, there's no fuss uploading and updating my site. Just hit "Publish" and it's live!
