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.

Contentstack

The customer base of the organization is very big. These consumers use [a] variety of devices plus the organization Where I work, I support many different channels to distribute our content. Our audience [is] spread globally. [The] headless nature of Contentstack prevents us from creating content with assumptions about how it is going to render. This allows downstream teams flexibility to choose styles without worrying about any bugs that may have been introduced during authoring.

Cons

Amaxus

  • 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.
Laura Bruss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Contentstack

  • The user interface is functional but can be better.
  • Occasionally I am unable to add a certain time to a blog post, but it fixes itself when I refresh.
  • One of the things that we feel could still improve, is the bulk actions.

Alternatives Considered

Amaxus

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.

Contentstack

  • It is [a] lean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • [The] high degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
  • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
  • Faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates

Return on Investment

Amaxus

  • It has a negative impact because it put us back on our timelines.
  • It had a negative impact because our customers didn't like the learning curve to use it.
  • It had a negative impact because it caused so much stress among our team to learn it.
Laura Bruss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Contentstack

  • Since Contentstack is cloud-based we don't need to worry about managing infrastructure. We can trust that our data is safe and available. So, we saved some [costs] in managing infrastructure.
  • Contentstack allows our delivery teams to move forward quickly with projects by lowering the barrier to entry when compared to a traditional CMS.
  • It enabled a degree of flexibility in our delivery methods that simply didn't exist before.
