Amaxus is well suited as a development platform and content management system for companies who have a dedicated, experienced development team because it has such complex functionality. It is not well suited for companies whose main content updater will be a person with limited development experience, because it is so hard to learn and understand how to use.

We recently put our alumni magazine online so viewers can read it digitally. SiteExecutive has been great for this project as it allowed us to easily create new templates and styling options specifically suited for our purposes.

Cons

  • There is a huge learning curve for developers. All our new website builds were going beyond the timeline because of the learning curve.
  • It is very complex and teaching our clients how to use it required several training sessions.

I have used an in-house CMS which was very simple and only allowed the user to update very basic templated content, and I have used Sitecore, which is sort of like a middle-of-the-road. Sitecore is great because it allows for the user to have a lot of control over templates and updating content, but it's not so complex that it is very difficult and time-consuming to learn how to use, like Amaxus.

WordPress is another CMS that I've used within a professional setting. Despite the cost difference, SiteExecutive is well worth the investment. Its functionality is much, much greater (they can't really be compared on the same level) and I have more freedom for customization and creating EXACTLY what I need.
