Movable Type

Is your business an enterprise level business that has more than a half dozen different content types? If so, then you might want to use a dedicated CMS rather than Movable Type. Movable Type is best used on small / medium sized businesses and is not the best solution for a full-fledged CMS. If you're using your content for something other than just displaying a website, then it's probably not for you. Movable Type works great for news/blogging sites. In fact, Daring Fireball, one of the most popular Apple-centric blogs is using Movable Type as its publishing platform.

If you already use Salesforce, then this is a no-brainer. There is no need to go to another platform for your CMS needs. If you don't have Salesforce at all, this is still a good choice but may not always make the most sense. There are cheaper options out there and also ones that might integrate with your platform better, but as always you will usually get what you pay for.

Pros

Movable Type

  • Easy to use straight out of the box, very user friendly with an intuitive interface.
  • Great for team use where there are multiple editors and writers fixing and editing each other's works. It's easy to track who last made the latest edits.
  • Stellar support team and system. I've found that Moveable Type's support system is generally more responsive and helpful than WordPress.

  • Video Content Logic
  • Inter-capability with SalesForce CRM
  • One Account Login for the staff.

Cons

Movable Type

  • Especially on the older versions, the limited number of well-developed third-party plugins is problematic for efficiently developing a well-functioning website.
  • Versions of movable type which didn't allow pages to be constructed were difficult to create continuity in design and easily editable pages for our editors.
  • The installation process could be simplified to make it easier for those new to a CMS to install.

Salesforce CMS

  • Layout looks old
  • Repetitive fields
  • Search function in documentation

I think there are still improvements to be made. I haven't tapped in to the full functionality of the CMS yet but the rating I give it now is only based on what I've been able to use it for

Alternatives Considered

Movable Type

Movable Type can be compared to WordPress. It's easy to use, and I would say Movable Type is actually more user-friendly.

Salesforce CMS

The Microsoft solutions were used previously, and were probably easier to use since they integrate with windows desktops so well. However, Salesforce is more integrated with mobile and the cloud platform, therefore it is inherently client device agnostic, which is ultimately more powerful. 10-20 years ago I would have recommended the former, but in the modern mobile age the latter is a must-have.

Return on Investment

Movable Type

  • Provided a blogging platform when we needed one.
  • Helped us compare other blogging platforms as a baseline for what minimums we require and what we don't want.
  • Users often refused to use Movable Type and would go around our official system in order to use my more friendly software.

Salesforce CMS

  • Time-consuming processes
  • Too complicated in parts
  • Management of many accounts
