    I think this CMS is best suited as an enterprise level system. For small, or simple sites, there are better options, but for large high-traffic sites, this is a great CMS.
    Brett Harris | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MODX

    [MODX is well suited for] all websites, from blogs to corporate sites. It is fast scalable and really good. A small site can be build really fast, and a large site can be made extremely scalable. A website redesign is easy to implement with a new template, without having to redo the content. It got great user groups and users and back-office access can be completely customized.
    While ecommerce is possible with some really good plugins I would only use MODX with ecommerce for sites where ecommerce is not the primary role. For pure ecommerce sites rather use a dedicated system like e.g. PrestaShop (i would say the same thing with other ecommerce plugins e.g. WP woo commerce don't do it unless its a site add on.)

    Pros

    CoreMedia

    • Allows many staff members to contribute content to various portions of our website, and allows our Electronic-Communications staff to delegate tasks to these various staff (diffusing the work-load).
    • CoreMedia allows for easy creation of different types of content (like teasers, articles, download objects, links, etc). Permission levels can be set, so only certain staff can upload content such as photos, videos, or audio files.
    • The CoreMedia workflow process is easy to understand and follow. Once a staff member has submitted content for publishing to the web, they can then see who it's been assigned to for review, and at what time. You're able to leave detailed notes and stay abreast of where the workflow is at any given time.

    MODX

    • Ease of use - the MODX platform is very easy to use for someone who may have limited experience in content management.
    • Content blocks - the content blocks within MODX add to the usability and customization of the website being managed.
    Frankie Heath | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    CoreMedia

    • Early learning within the company was slow.
    • We elected a customized version of CoreMedia - which in the end may not have been the best decision.
    Nicola Farman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MODX

    • The user interface was confusing at times.
    • Not a plug and play CMS system.
    • The site manager doesn't always run fast.

    CoreMedia continues to refine and deliver new features. They also explore new technologies and trends, like social media integration. The platform is solid and growing. We are also slightly locked into using CoreMedia. Migrating such a large amount of content to another system would likely not be feasible or prudent.

    It is the CMS we use the most, not because we know it well but because we literally tried many of other CMS and this one did it for us.
    However having said we really do not like the one shoe fits all approach. E..g for eCommerce we usually use PrestaShop etc. if a specialized CMS can do a task rather use that.
    However for a general CMS [MODX] is hard to beat.

    Set aside more time than you think you need to migrate content. That is the hard part. Implementing the technology is easy.

    Alternatives Considered

    CoreMedia

    While CoreMedia has a better workflow, django CMS has a much easier user interface, wysiwyg editor, and is superior on every other level. Django CMS is easier to teach and support, easier to manage and develop, and provides much more flexibility in the development and design areas.
    Sara Halperin | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MODX

    The other company that we looked into was WordPress and all of the features that it offered our organization. What MODX offered to us from development to everyday use just made more sense for our organization as a whole. WordPress is still a great CMS platform, just not exactly what we were looking for.

    Very scalable. e.g. in the [MODX] manager you can manage multiple websites at once without having to login else where. it is very convenient and this way resources and be easily managed and shared.

    Return on Investment

    CoreMedia

    • Increased employee proficiency compared to nothing at all. I really don't have anything else to compare it to though.
    • Reports from Core do not help/.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MODX

    • Increased security permissions of the users and freelancers who worked on our website.
    • Gave our developers the ability to create any page that they wanted with custom code.
    • Hindered our Marketing team's ability to stay on top of our content strategy with changes.
