Amaxus

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.

Clickability

It's great for having a placement list for stories on a page. Once you target the content, it's a simple drag-and-drop to reorder them. You know exactly which pages the story is on, because of where you target it. We also found we needed a more robust story template. Our developers were able to add more features to initial layout which provided a better user experience.

Pros

  • There is a lot of flexibility and power with what you can do.
  • The client has a lot of power to make changes on their own without needing a development team.

  • Clickablity allows for easy story publishing. This is crucial with breaking news and keeping viewers up-to-date.
  • It has a good back end for specific development of additional features. We work with a team of developers that create items for live video promotions, weather closing ticker bars, etc.
  • The templates that you can create help with quick page layout reproductions to help with usability and site continuity.

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.

  • The initial concept of how the pages work with sections can be tricky. Once you get into the system and start creating layouts and pages, it's becomes easier. You have to have some training and a good period for learning.
  • There could be more drag and drop features.
  • Some menus are small and take a while to change the placement (i.e. updating navigation).

I gave it a 7 because it has some positive qualities and some qualities to work on. One positive thing about Clickability is that it allows us to manage three different websites together, and have one article appear on all three sites. That can really expedite workflow. At the same time, there is room for improvement with clunky targeting, multiple URLs (on one website), and occasional bugs. Page-building could be easier.

Once you learn the system, it's pretty easy. Training is involved and not ever placement list is drag-and-drop.

I found that some agents were better then others, usually you have an account representative and that I would consider level 1 support. To get really complex answers you need to talk with an engineer.

Have a developer on staff to work with them, even if you are not designing your site yourself.

Alternatives Considered

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.

I have not used or evaluated any other similar products. The decision to select Clickability was made by the company. I believe the idea was to find a content management system that could help the company build and manage a robust website that could expand and grow. There's definitely an importance in finding a reliable product where employees could work remotely and quickly.
