Contentstack
Contentstack has flexible functionality which opens up a lot of possibilities for businesses with proactive web development teams to create their own website builder app to compete with 3rd party agencies. This is especially useful in a large enterprise where non-technical teams often turn to expensive outside agencies which cost more in the long run than an up-front investment into an in-house application.

During the season when sales gets really hot, we can run multiple meetings a day. HubSpot helps us as a central location where account executives can catch up quick on information and see KPI's for our team. HubSpot is not helpful in getting contacts or finding information. It is a place for implementing that information and using it effectively

Cons
Contentstack
  • In my opinion it's not very intuitive. I've found its difficult to understand how to best structure entries, especially if they are related
  • In my experience, entries can get difficult to understand if weren't the creator. It would be helpful to have some meta data around the entry itself and the fields within them in my opinion.
  • Integration with an A/B testing platform would be nice.

  • Although you can integrate it with Google Analytics, there is still a significant difference between what each tells you about [a] number of visitors to a given page, etc.
  • There's a lot to the program and it's not always intuitive where to go for a feature. Though the help center and academy are good and usually have the answers, having to look things up isn't.
  • It's expensive.

Support Rating
Contentstack
They have an in-app chat with their support team, who is always quick to respond and provide helpful answers. I've never walked away from an interaction without my issue being solved quickly and easily. They're also very communicative over email and are sure to follow up after any changes are made to ensure we're seeing the desired result. They are always very professional and easy to work with.

Alternatives Considered
Contentstack
Contentstack has better international hosting support then Contentful and we found the presales and sales support people were MUCH more responsive than Contentful. The Sitecore sales process was very very slow and overly complex. We felt Sitecore had many features that were not valuable and the cost to benefit ratio was much lower compared to ContentStack

Easier and faster to use then these two, HubSpot CMS Hub provides me with a long list of tools that make my marketing process more smooth and easy to manage, it doesn't get too technical but is also not too basic, so it has the balance I need when preparing campaigns for some of our sites.

Return on Investment
Contentstack
  • Saved significant amounts of money that would previously been spent on 3rd party agencies to build websites
  • Empowered Comms teams to create and edit the design and content of their own websites on demand rather than relying on the Dev team
  • Allowed the Development team to concentrate on building functionality rather than websites, so we can focus on improvement rather than BAU work.
