Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • Shows what you're going to see immediately in a side-by-side screen.
  • Allows for easy standardization of content look/feel.
  • Permissions are easy to maintain.
  • 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.

  • CoreMedia is a robust system that can manage large sites with multiple, well-organized subsites.
  • CoreMedia has a built-in workflow system that functions well for a distributed contributor model.
  • CoreMedia, although robust, is also complex. It is not easy to teach or learn, especially when a contributor is not in the system on a daily basis.
  • The user interface is built with developers in mind, but not with contributors in mind. It is hard to navigate and not easy to learn or remember.
  • Some of the terms are confusing. With the translation from German to English, not everything was translated well for an English-based American user base and it is easy to get confused whether one is, for example, marking something for deletion or actually deleting something.

  • Easy to use for beginners, because the software is straightforward and easy to learn.
  • The input to output is consistent - when editing for a webpage, you know what to expect.
  • The program helps streamline the web development process and works to achieve fast, consistent results.
  • Every so often, there would be issues with HTML, that were occasionally difficult to troubleshoot.
  • Suggest having a preview feature that would show exactly what the website will look like after changes are implemented.
  • Add direct social media feature.

  • Integrates well with existing infrastructure and software applications. We leveraged ActiveDirectory authentication, a Solr search engine, Java/Spring, Oracle, and other technologies.
  • Allows for multiple workflows for content publishing based on user roles. Each of our sites has separate workflows and allow for managed and unmanaged content production.
  • Templating system is extremely customizable without being unmanageable. This allows developers to custom tailor content and presentation without worry about performance.
  • Some technical concepts require quite a bit of learning. There is very good training and documentation available, but you will need a strong team of developers to leverage all the features of 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.
  • Where content lives within CoreMedia can often be confusing (i.e. you have created an article, but are linking to content in another folder that might be completely unrelated). Navigating to and from different content folders can be frustrating and often confusing on where the content "lives" versus where it is posted on the website.
  • Formatting is CoreMedia is less than desirable. You have minimal options for headings and other formatting options, resulting in a dull, or boring website. Several of the formatting functions don't work across different browsers, for example, bullet points.
  • Because some users are granted different permissions levels, staff often have to wait in order for an admin user to assist with certain aspects of their workflow. There should be a button, or option to submit an urgent request on an item from within CoreMedia, rather than having to email colleagues via Outlook. Additionally, there could be an added level of permissions for basic users, more advanced users, and then the admins of the system who ultimately publish content.
