It is being used by the website development department as the primary development tool and CMS for all our new website builds. We build new websites for hotels and resorts, and we have transitioned from an in-house CMS to Amaxus as the development platform. I am a project manager and oversee developers building in Amaxus, as well as use Amaxus for content-input.
  • There is a lot of flexibility and power with what you can do.
  • The client has a lot of power to make changes on their own without needing a development team.
  • There is a huge learning curve for developers. All our new website builds were going beyond the timeline because of the learning curve.
  • It is very complex and teaching our clients how to use it required several training sessions.
Amaxus is well suited as a development platform and content management system for companies who have a dedicated, experienced development team because it has such complex functionality. It is not well suited for companies whose main content updater will be a person with limited development experience, because it is so hard to learn and understand how to use.
