Likelihood to Recommend

Communifire by Axero Solutions

Specific scenarios where Communifire would be well suited to an organisation, would be companies that are people focused and committed to frequent and open communication channels from both the top-down and bottom-up. It also would suit organizations that are committed to providing the staff opportunities to collaborate, share and actively contribute to company initiatives and planning. If these aren't elements of your organization's culture, the system would still work for you or those companies who just want to push information out and have an effective intranet. Communifire would cater to these scenarios just as well and is more than capable of providing that type of simple solution.

If you need a website, WordPress should be on your list. The only exception to that would be a large ecommerce site. I wouldn't recommend WordPress to someone who does hundreds of sales per day via their ecommerce platform. Yes, there are add-ons and plugins that can do it, but you can also mop your floor with your cat. Why do that? There are other platforms that specialize in ecommerce and do it so much better.But if you need a social blog, B2B or B2C lead gen, a non-profit, a membership site, a community bulletin board, news site, arts and music or just a simple about me type of website, WordPress is the perfect platform for you. It's so very popular, that it's not going anywhere. It is a platform that will be supported as long there are websites on the internet! You really can't go wrong. Even if you wanted to do an ecommerce site on WordPress, you can. I just would urge you to look at another solution.

Pros

Communifire by Axero Solutions

  • Communifire allows people to connect easily through instant chat and messaging. It works similarly to other social media platforms like Facebook so its not hard to learn.
  • Communifire makes it easy to share news and events with our community and the presentation of this information looks very professional.
  • I found Communifire quite easy to configure to our individual needs. There were a lot of options to turn things on or off. This was important to us because in some areas of our community we wanted to allow our contractors many features and in other areas we wanted to really limit what was on offer.
  • We had a big list of things we needed a platform to do. Communifire ticked all the boxes.

WordPress

  • It is constantly being improved, with new features added, because of the community code-sourcing aspect.
  • Security vulnerabilities are continually being patched to keep it secure.
  • It has the best plugin repository, by far. So, anytime you have a needed new feature for your website, there is usually a plugin that already exists to allow you to do what you're wanting.

Cons

Communifire by Axero Solutions

  • Some UX issues that could be improved
  • Some architecture decisions don't make complete sense to me (though that's just one man's opinion)
Col Fink | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

  • One of the major advantages of WordPress is it is an open source software but sometimes it becomes its disadvantage since it is an open source it is always at the target of hackers especially if the codes have been written by someone else.
  • When you install lots of plugins the website becomes laggy or stutters it takes time to complete the process.

My rating is based on the knowledge I have of the community that WordPress has had built around it for years now. It's as solid as it comes when you talk about community involvement and expansion. There's no other CMS out there that can match-up with it, hands down.

Usability

This rating has a caveat - there is always room for improvement, and this team gets it.You always learn from customers how to do things better and easier, so it is a constant learning of how people use the site. Although the search engine is exceptional, most people do not use it as their first line of research.Much of the usability has to do with layout - and is not just a software usability item, so the rating is severely dependent up on the layout/options you choose for your usage. And their team will do anything in their power to get the results and layout you want.The areas that need improvement - and acknowledged by the team - are the administrative tools. There are a ton of options, and it takes a little to learn some of those. For most people, however, this won't be an issue, because the support team will always help you. This is always the case with more power. If there were fewer options it would no doubt be easier, but they give you the keys to all of the cars in the lot; so a little more to learn.

It's a sophisticated but easy to use piece of software. Many of the content addition pieces are familiar from other pieces of software so there isn't a huge learning curve. And for new areas, there is a lot of info on WordPress.org as well as other WordPress help sites.

Anyone can visit WordPress.org and download a fully functional copy of WordPress free of charge. Additionally, WordPress is offered to users as open-source software, which means that anyone can customize the code to create new applications and make these available to other WordPress users.

Mostly, any performance issues have to do with using too many plugins and these can sometimes slow down the overall performance of your site. It is very tempting to start adding lots of plugins to your WordPress site, however, as there are thousands of great plugins to choose from and so many of them help you do amazing things on your site.If you begin to notice performance issues with your WordPress site (e.g. pages being slow to load), there are ways to optimize the performance of your site, but this requires learning the process. WordPress users can learn how to optimize their WordPress sites by downloading the WPTrainMe WordPress training plugin (WPTrainMe.com) and going through the detailed step-by-step WordPress optimization tutorials.

I give this rating, which I believe to be a great rating for a community based support system that's surrounding it. Most platforms and products have their own, and as WordPress does have their own team that help here and there, a lot of it's handled by community involvement with dedicated users who are experts with the system who love to help people.

As someone who learned how to install and configure WordPress and then began performing the service professionally for other local businesses, and finally ended up teaching and training business owners about the benefits of using WordPress and developing WordPress training products, I am constantly amazed when I hear from business owners that their sites have taken weeks or even months to get built and how much they have paid for it. Getting a professional WordPress site built and fully configured requires only hours or a couple of days. If you learn how to do it yourself, the only cost you have is registering a domain name and getting a web hosting account, which is a requirement for any website. Additionally, WordPress website owners can be up and running and growing their presence online even before deciding on a specific web design "look" for their sites. You can start with any web template and change your theme as soon as you find the design you like, and everything that you have added to your site will remain the same.I have grown to love WordPress, as have thousands of other WordPress users, and I have always taught in my business seminars and workshops that, unless what you plan to do online requires some specific custom-built complex application, then consider using WordPress. WordPress is the ideal platform of choice to consider for most business website needs - it can save you thousands of dollars on web development costs and it puts you in the driver's seat of your own online vehicle!

Alternatives Considered

Communifire by Axero Solutions

We selected Communifire for the excellent sales support, strong feature set and quick set up time. We were able to get started immediately and build out features as need required which led to faster execution and higher adoption rates among our team.
Teresa Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

WordPress offers a combination of power and ease of use that no other system matches. For 98% of all small business websites it is completely capable and is going to be easier for clients to use, resulting in fewer support issues. In the rare cases where something is needed that WordPress simply isn't suited to, I find that Drupal usually provides a solution that works.

WordPress is completely scalable. You can get started immediately with a very simple "out-of-the box" WordPress installation and then add whatever functionality you need as and when you need it, and continue expanding. Often we will create various WordPress sites on the same domain to handle different aspects of our strategy (e.g. one site for the sales pages, product information and/or a marketing blog, another for delivering products securely through a private membership site, and another for running an affiliate program or other application), and then ties all of these sites together using a common theme and links on each of the site's menus.Additionally, WordPress offers a multisite function that allows organizations and institutions to manage networks of sites managed by separate individual site owners, but centrally administered by the parent organization. You can also expand WordPress into a social networking or community site, forums, etc.The same scalability applies to web design. You can start with a simple design and then scale things up to display sites with amazing visual features, including animations and video effects, sliding images and animated product image galleries, elements that appear and fade from visitor browsers, etc.The scaling possibilities of WordPress are truly endless.

Return on Investment

Communifire by Axero Solutions

  • We are still building out features of the platform but with implemention of paid features by members, we will be able to cover our operating cost of the platform.
Art Aughey, FDN | TrustRadius Reviewer

WordPress

  • Because the WordPress platform is free and hosting is not expensive, WordPress usage can positively impact maintenance cost of running a small ecommerce website or a medium-sized blog.
  • Many software companies release free WordPress modules, making it easy to assemble a site with basic functionality quickly.
