Contentful

Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].
Jennifer Garcia | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

Great for solo-preneurs, agencies and businesses of all sizes. It is feature rich, easy to use even for non coders, beginners and those where design is not your strength. Everyone can use WebWave. Simple, easy to create and launch in a couple of hours.
Daniel Remon | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Contentful

  • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • 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)
Andrew Folts | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

  • The UI is a bit complicated but contains all the features and functions needed.
  • No coding skill is required. We can focus on design. And the design process is quite fun.
  • We can adjust and control all the elements of the web easily with WebWave. And I like the richness of the elements available in WebWave.

Cons

Contentful

  • The new Contentful "branches" feature looked promising (it appears to mirror a git-like repository) but it requires the CLI, which isn't necessarily practical for teams that aren't current CLI users. It would be nice if the management of this feature were available via the UI (without that it causes more confusion than anything).
  • The Contentful data modeling method makes for a bit of an awkward SDK developer experience in some strongly typed languages like Java. Most things that you might need can be accomplished, but it feels like the experience could be smoother.
  • It would be nice if there were a way to migrate data between spaces (e.g. from your staging space to production).
Eric Mason | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

  • The only thing I would change is to add more payment options in the case of the store (it is about plug-ins). PayPal and cryptocurrency would also be useful.

1. The support person does not seem to understand the issues, and seems like they go off to talk to somebody and revert back every 5 to 10 minutes. It takes up a lot of time.2. There is a lack of reading material to address simple issues like changing the website name in the dashboard, pasting a code, etc.

Alternatives Considered

Contentful

Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

WebWave has an extensive feature set and the price is a great bargain. Its functionality overall is better and allows the end-user more control over their overall design. The included editor and design review features are top-notch and extremely useful. I'd highly recommend it to any web-developer, but it could also be great for an end user with some design experience.

Return on Investment

Contentful

  • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
  • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

WebWave

  • It has allowed me to build the websites I envision, rather than the best I could build given the limited tools that most site builders offer
  • It has allowed me to build the sites faster
