If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

Kentico

If you require a MS / .NET stack, Kentico is a cost effective option that offers nearly all the same features and capabilities as its competitors (the major competitor being Sitecore). As just a CMS, it's robust and has a lot of bells and whistles, but when architected well, you can create some pretty slick design templates. The EMS takes it to a whole other level though. If you're just starting out in digital marketing, or you want to consolidate your digital marketing efforts, the EMS offers tons of basic capabilities: content personalization, AB testing, email marketing, marketing automation, etc. If you've never tried things like Salesforce, Optimisely, Google Analytics, etc., using the EMS would be a great way to start out, and then add on these more robust 3rd party services as your needs for additional features grow. Meanwhile all your stuff stays consolidated in one place until you're ready to branch out.

  • The EMS capabilities, especially content personalization, can help you go from a "brochure site" to a truly user-centered website experience.
  • The Kentico 8 admin interface is significantly improved over the Kentico 7 interface.

I don't see the industry producing a better product than this anytime soon after using many other of the CMS platforms out there.

It seriously is one of the best interfaces I have ever used. I also love the fact that I can use UI personalization to secure any functionality by user or role that I don't want that role to have access to. The best part is the customization of the UI, I can add in any button, tab, or menu item I want through it, no code required.

Alternatives Considered

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.

Ektron is a great solution as well, but our clients have found Kentico easier to use on a day to day basis with a better editing interface. They stack up very similarly in terms of features, but customers that have switched are always happy that they did.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to use customer service tools
  • Invaluable reporting abilities
  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees
Donovan Farmer profile photo
  • It has allowed us to educate the client and allow them to have control over things like content, analytics, content deployments, etc. Which saves them money for not having to hire technical teams to handle those things.
