HubSpot CMS Hub

HubSpot CMS Hub can be quite helpful when I need to make sure I have a smooth, clean and fast marketing process for some of our ecom stores.That being said I feel secure and comfortable using their analytics tools as they provide a very complete, unique, and easy way to manage our sites marketing.

Percussion CMS

Best suited for large organizations where everyone knows how to deal with Java in an increasingly Java unfriendly world. Said organization should be willing to pay a huge price for a piece of dinosaur technology

Cons

HubSpot CMS Hub

  • 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.

Percussion CMS

  • One word: JAVA! We don't live in the 1990's anymore! An AJAX/DHTML environment seems a long time coming.
  • Horrible end-user experience, learning curve. Our end users' inability to easily use the archaic, Java-based interface, means they send the web developer their content requests. This creates a huge bottleneck and completely defeats the purpose of a CMS.
  • Image mangement and integration with content is aweful and time consuming. An image processing tool called ImedImage was developed for Percussion at one point, and left completely stagnant with very little support.
  • Implementation is extremely complicated, given the complexity of the system. Sure, scalability is a good thing, but there is very little out-of-the box function. Don't expect to implement a site as quickly as with other CMS platforms.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot CMS Hub

It got the most powerful tools which other providers don't have like - covers contact management, deal and task management, and integrations with social and email to track interactions with leads. Deal and task management etc.

No contest. I can't wait to get off of Percussion CMS.

Return on Investment

HubSpot CMS Hub

  • Has helped with visibility
  • Has helped cut cost since we can do more in one place versus having several software departments are using separately
Brianna Dinoff | TrustRadius Reviewer

Percussion CMS

  • We are locked into Percussion CMS simply due to the expense and complexity of migrating to another solution (and the lack of time and budget to do so). I long for the day when I am no longer required to support Percussion CMS, to say the least.
