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.

Siteglide

As already mentioned, migrating websites from Adobe Business Catalyst, or any other platform is a strength. Using the Siteglide CLI, websites can be migrated as a static site to Siteglide, thus greatly reducing the amount of work necessary for the migration. Also, as long as developers are acquainted with HTML, CSS, Liquid, and Javascript, building sites with Siteglide can be done rapidly using their Siteglide Studio site builder. One of the additional strengths of Siteglide is Webapps. These can be easily used to provide the display and manipulation of dynamic data. The site can be designed so that users can change information without knowing anything about the underlying code. It allows a form-driven way to update site pages.

Pros

Amaxus

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

Siteglide

  • Some features are still under development
  • Billing plans occasionally cost more than competition, mainly because of the way Platform OS works
  • "Drag and Drop" website building and maintenance could be improved in order to compete with other site-builders. Less reliance on knowing HTML, CSS, Liquid, Javascript, etc. would be a good direction to go in the future.

There could be an improvement for "non-programmers" and drag and drop editing. However, Siteglide's target market of website development agencies is well served and a great fit. Sites can be migrated from other platforms quickly and easily. New responsive websites can be developed quickly using Siteglide Studio and then robust functionality can be built out quickly and reliably. There is a wide range of features included in Siteglide and more features and upgrades are being rapidly added. The environment is built on a stable and performance-oriented platform. This allows agencies to provide excellent service on a worldwide basis.

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.

Siteglide

WordPress was used on one migration of a complex site as a test of the capabilities of both WordPress / Elementor and the WordHerd migration service. It went very well but did take a long time to get what the client wanted, mostly due to the fact that they wanted a complete redesign. The downside of WordPress is plug-in management, which is nearly constant and at one time broke some functionality. Siteglide does not have these issues, as plugins are controlled and tested -- and are functions that are built-in.I also used Duda to migrate several sites where the client wanted a redesign, but also a site design refresh. This works best with smaller sites, and there are no automated migration tools, such as in Siteglide.

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

Siteglide

  • I was able to migrate sites quickly from Adobe Business Catalyst - saved a lot of time
  • Some sites were migrated in place without client knowledge or involvement - and no business disruption.
  • Initial learning curve caused a couple of "redos".
