    Craft is really well suited for any size design team - I have used it within a team of 3, and within a team of 30.It helps with collaboration within the team, and between external teams through 'sync' with Invision.It increases efficiency of using Sketch with things like 'data', 'duplicate', and 'stock'. These tools not only make designing faster, but also more realistic, allowing us to 'test' our designs sooner.

    Umbraco CMS

    Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.

    Pros

    Craft

    • Craft is built to digital products developers, so its workflow is great.
    • It has a very nice interface and is a beautiful tool.
    Raphael Sanguinete | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Umbraco CMS

    • Quick to learn. For most if cases, developer needs to know Razor coding.
    • Doesn't require back-end programming.
    • Has build in users management (developers, content managers) and members management consoles (users of the site).
    • Clear admin tool (especially in version 7)
    • Fast.
    • Creating code from scratch, so it is easier to create clean code.
    Filip Witkowski | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Craft

    • Text formatting is sometimes difficult and can break your flow of writing.
    • The button for creating another level is exceptionally hard to see and poorly placed.
    • Copying rich text out of the app pastes it with an odd styling.
    Ben Lachman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Umbraco CMS

    • Speed for older sites - Umbraco content can load slowly if you have thousands of pages of content. Of course, this would not be a problem for simpler websites
    • Complexity - since the product is free out-of-the-box, it will take technical expertise to get Umbraco setup properly

    Working in the admin panel (adding / reviewing / editing content) is very slow.The public facing site speed is dependent on what the pages are doing and how well the code was written (whether it is optimized for speed).

    Online training is often based on older versions of the platform. So, you'll have to fill in the gaps on your own.

    Spend the time to wireframe the content structure prior to diving in. This helps speed the process of implementation and it serves as documentation for end users.

    Alternatives Considered

    Craft

    Craft was originally developed in response to ExpressionEngine's shortcomings. While ExpressionEngine has caught up in some regards, it still looks and feels a bit unpolished by comparison. Additionally, ExpressionEngine's vendor has never gotten UI right - not on their website, nor in their CMS. Craft remains easier to use, more polished and provides a wider feature set in its base install (without needing plugins).As for WordPress - while I recognize its massive popularity, I find its reliance on themes, third-party plugins, along with security shortcomings, make it a poor fit for the larger custom projects we build. On the other hand, if you want to throw up a passable website in a day, you can't beat WordPress.

    Umbraco CMS

    Umbraco's templating is far superior than WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, but it's update process is WAY behind those platforms. The release schedule of Umbraco is way to often and most releases are to fix something missed in the previous release and not an improvement or new feature of the CMS

    Without significant development, the product does not scale well.

    Return on Investment

    Craft

    • More accurate mockups for clients that take less time than without using Craft.
    • Increased collaboration within and between teams by providing more immediate insight into active design work.
    • More enjoyable experiences while designing, because the tool set opens up new work flows that do not existing natively in any design software.

    Umbraco CMS

    • Has helped us to create more engaging pages that push people to complete the online forms
    • We have seen more people buy from us since we launched our new look website
    • We can easily update the content without waiting for the development team to make changes
