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.

Elementor

If you need to have agile web design and easy editing, then Elementor is the way to go. You run into trouble when you need super custom solutions, or when you combine it with certain plug-ins that don’t play well. This is on a case-by-case basis, and can often be solved by high-level programmers.

Pros

Amaxus

  • 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.
Laura Bruss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

  • The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. Each of the blocks is laid out in a very standard way. This makes learning Elementor pretty quick. There are a lot of advanced features that take longer to become familiar with, but for solid basic design, it is easy to learn.
  • Elementor is quite capable of building nicely designed fast sites. It also has excellent Mobile capabilities allowing a designer to make sure the look on Tablet and Phone are as well designed as the desktop version.
  • Elementor works well with virtually every Theme out there. However, to go a step further, there are quite a few Themes that are built specifically to work with Elementor.
  • This is not something that Elementor does, but I need to mention that there are several Block sets out there that are made for Elementor and expand the design capabilities.

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.

Elementor

  • If you'd asked me a year ago where Elementor could improve, this list would be easy, now, not so much. The product develops at a phenomenal rate with new features consistently being rolled out. Support has improved DRAMATICALLY and is really world class at this point.

Elementor is one of those website builders that is really easy to get started with. The drag and drop features make it easy to create attractive and creative webpages for even the non-website designer. Some of the features available are not easy to find or easy to discover when you first start using Elementor. Practice makes perfect.

There support is slow and at times can be frustrating and this is why many prefer to air out their frustrations within the Facebook group community. I tend to give up as when I'm working on something and something goes wrong I need the help straight away. I do not have the patience to wait anymore.

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.
Laura Bruss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

Elementor is superior to other page builders I have used previously, including Divi and Beaver Builder, and are easier to use than hosted options I have previously used, including Squarespace and Wix. It allows for more flexible designs for advanced users and a more intuitive interface for complete beginners. It is full of great features, widgets and premade templates that are great to use for users of all levels.

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

Elementor

  • ROI: able to complete more web design projects in less time.
  • ROI: able to upload demo content/themes and edit with ease, giving clients the opportunity to see mockups faster than before.
  • ROI: ease of use allows for more opportunities to design sites for more companies.
