  • The commerce engine is not robust enough and we find this is not very user-friendly at all
  • The promotion engine could use a more user-friendly approach and is very complicated to use
It's well suited for all personalisation and front end requirements. The commerce engine, however, is clunky and difficult to use and a lot of what we would expect to be best of breed user experience for a commerce catalog management is not out of the box with EPI. We have had multiple customisations to the platform and for a retailer, there should not be so much customization required as it's extremely costly to manage. The VM/merch tool is non-existent and we really need this.

At least in my opinion, if you are looking for a .NET eCommerce platform that works on-prem or in a PaaS model, Episerver is the only platform on the market that performs well in those scenarios. If you are a mom and pop shop that is selling 10 t-shirts online, there are certainly more cost effective solutions on the market to handle that business need.

We are using Episerver Digital Commerce as our primary website CMS and product information systems. We drive a global website with all regions and multiple languages for all product groups. EPi creates a single place where we can manage and distribute content globally and consistently. This allows oversight by a small group and flexibility for our authors to drive personalization and increased customer focused materials.
  • Manages our product data
  • Personalizes content based on persona type
  • Manages international sites including by region and language.
  • Additional flexibility in setting up content blocks and web templates
  • Increased options on managing persona's and personalization rules
  • Increased number of potential systems to integrate with.
Well suited to global organizations, especially B2B who aren't focused on transacting online, but more focused on presenting a broad portfolio range. For companies with a smaller set of products and product types, I believe that the personalization would work better and be able to drive specific customer experiences around products and solutions.

Episerver Digital Commerce powers Feizy.com. Feizy is one of the country’s largest manufacturers of fine hand-knotted, hand-tufted and power-loomed rugs. Administered by our marketing team and enabled by our IT group, the Episerver platform is Feizy's first foray into a rich, shoppable experience -- allowing our customers instant, self-service access to real-time inventory, pricing and account status. We are deeply dedicated to our customers, especially the design community; as artisans supporting other artists, Feizy chose Episerver for the robust toolset that would allow us to quickly and fully make our product discoverable and shoppable to the designer segment.
  • Quick and easy access to make real-time content updates
  • Comprehensive tracking and reporting of administrative and transactional events
  • Seamless integration with other popular platforms for card processing, shipping and distribution, ratings and reviews and more
  • Episerver Digital Commerce is brimming with valuable, useful tools. Organizing them all in an intuitive user interface is a challenge for any solution platform, and Episerver is no exception. Once you know your way around the system, it's easy to find what you need, but the initial journey can be a bit overwhelming. Be sure to partner with a qualified provider willing to handhold you through the integration and launch.
Episerver is excellently suited for SMBs and larger companies alike. It's particularly well suited for a company like ours: lean and nimble, moving quickly and that requires an easy to use platform that can meet changing business demands.

It is used as the organization's primary CMS for its multiple digital portals.
  • Easy to correct or update dynamic content.
  • Easy to restructure a page.
  • Page building workflow/process is cumbersome and slow.
  • Customizing existing blocks/modules a challenge.
  • Ongoing fixes of issues and development for new builds is expensive and slow.
The platform is best suited for e-commerce where blocks of content are fixed and interchangeable. It's less suited to a site with lots of dynamic content, experiential needs, and customization requirements.

Review: "Using Episerver Digital Commerce for B2B"

Episerver Digital Commerce is used as our B2B eCommerce platform as well as for a CMS-only site for one of our brands. On the B2B side, it allows more than 10,000 customers to purchase our products in a secure, private portal. It is managed and used primarily by our marketing department, but customer service participated in user management and IT participates in the integration of Episerver with other systems.
  • Web content management -- the interface is drag and drop and makes it very easy for business users to create product pages.
  • In site search with Episerver Find -- it is easy to promote attributes and make quick tweaks to fine-tune results.
  • Integrate with other systems -- we have integrated with our ERP, our product information management system, our digital asset management system and our marketing automation system to take advantage of investments we have already made in content and customer data.
  • Cloud hosting -- generally the hosting service is good, but we do experieicne significant slowdowns when a new instance spins up.
  • Customizable promotions -- the promotions function offers many out-of-the-box options, but, for us, required a lot of customization to create the types of promotions we regularly use; this may be because our focus is B2B.
  • General out-of-the-box B2B features -- we are able to use Episerver quite well for our B2B needs, but our implementation partner had to do a fair bit of custom development to get us there.
I think it's very well suited to many scenarios, and it would be hard to beat it from an ease of use standpoint. I have not found an enterprise-level system that is easier for business users to use. It's great for web content management and catalog management via commerce as well as for personalization and the ability to serve up targeted content via user groups.

Episerver Digital Commerce Review: "Episerver - A good platform"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Episerver is used as our e-commerce platform. The platform is managed by an e-commerce department that sits in between sales, IT, and marketing. We service multiple product types. Books, e-books, journal subscriptions, live events, online training, and membership. Episerver also serves as a central my account area for members to access and manage all of these purchased products. It has centralized the selling and management of multiple product types on one platform.
  • Content Management - Since Episerver was previously a content management platform, the tools to manage content are easy to learn and use.
  • 3rd Party Tool Integration - many opportunities to integrate 3rd party tools and plugins that cover many areas including email marketing, analytics, and site personalization.
  • Adequate ability to integrate with our backend CMS and accounting software.
  • Lack of a phone center customer service module. There is not a front end where customer service can enter and manage orders and member accounts. This necessitates a separate custom platform with the same capabilities as Episerver to service members who call in to the customer service center. So any upgrades to Episerver have to matched in the separate CS platform. This is not just a shortcoming of Episerver. It is a blind spot for all ecommerce platforms and industry. Often we are limited in our ability to upgrade Episerver because of this missing component.
  • Slow. It works fine. But you always want it to be faster and more responsive. On both sides of the equation. Within Episerver itself and the use of the platform by the end user. This is also a problem with all ecommerce platforms and in the industry. Most integrations are just happy to make it to the first step. Our ecommerce platform is up and working! Yahoo! Much less time and energy is given to the next step - optimization. That is because this is a very complicated step. It involves Episerver, your IT department, your software vendor partner, your hosting company, and your PIM/database. Reasons for a slow site are hard to diagnose and hard to fix. Throw in the fact that slowness can also be for reasons on the side of the end user. Best effort may only be getting the platform to work in your environment. Getting a platform to work WELL in your environment is a whole other beast that very few companies have the capability to do. To add to the complexity of this there is almost no way to judge a coding vendor's capability to do this. Something you have to figure out over time. And it also depends on a lot on your internal IT departments capabilities and culture. So a difficult problem all around.
Episerver is particularly suited to selling simple straightforward products online. It is a well-functioning e-commerce platform that is easy to update and maintain. It is also mobile optimized which is huge. But complications come in with more complicated products. And if you have a robust telephone customer service center. Products that need a lot of customization and/or many different product types. If you are experienced in the e-commerce/IT world you know that the further away you get from a base installation (more specific code customizations), the harder it is to upgrade and take advantage of plugins provided by Episerver and third parties. You know. Scope creep. No platform in the world is immune to this problem and neither is Episerver.

Episerver Digital Commerce Review: "A strong CMS and commerce offering that continues to evolve and grow"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

One of our e-commerce websites currently runs on Episerver Digital Commerce. Episerver was implemented a couple years back to replace an older e-commerce website that had poor functionality and very limited flexibility. It was put in place to improve the current e-commerce experience as well as put the business in a position to grow and expand its digital offerings.
  • Flexible architecture that provides a solid foundation for a custom website.
  • Continuous release cycle that allows for quick innovation and advancement of the core platform.
  • Solid product offering outside Digital Commerce, with strong CMS and search options.
  • A more detailed product roadmap could be provided to customers.
  • For on-premise (non-cloud) instances, technical support typically comes from a partner. There are somewhat limited support options for in-house teams without a partner.
  • Licensing usually goes through a partner. You can license directly from Episerver but there's limited access to directly downloading license files or local developer licenses.
Episerver is well suited for customers that need both a strong CMS and strong commerce offering. Most platforms skew in one direction or the other, either focusing on a shopping cart or content. Episerver provides a very solid offering in both categories, which makes it a great choice for a business that needs both but wants to avoid integrating two different platforms together.

Episerver Digital Commerce Review: "EpiServer - One of the best .NET CMS Platforms"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

It's used as a CMS platform for our public marketing and e-commerce websites. It is used by our consumer interactive group as well as e-commerce group. The number one problem it addresses was speed to make changes and roll out new content. Our previous systems were not efficient at allowing business users to author and publish content in a timely manner.
  • Allows developers to create a highly customized platform without getting in the way.
  • Pays a lot of attention to customer feedback, and rolls that into a product road map in relatively short timeframes.
  • Provides a good UI to author content, which is always difficult to keep up if you have an in-house system.
  • Tight coupling to database schema makes it difficult to deploy code with no downtime. This is on the product road map to fix, however.
  • The e-commerce portion of the product still has some older implementation frameworks, so functionality between CMS and commerce is not always consistent.
Episerver is a great platform for any team with .NET MVC experience. It is one of the few enterprise CMS/E-Commerce platforms that is truly .NET MVC. This allows your development team to take full advantage of all the latest .NET capabilities. It does a good job of being able to handle multi-tenancy, and many of the authoring tools are simple and make sense.

I can't think of any scenarios where it could not be successfully deployed.

Episerver Digital Commerce is used by the Marketing Department to assist with ecommerce management. It assists with conversion tracking and reporting as well as POS processing.
  • Tracks orders which helps with ecommerce order management.
  • Assist with promotion code set up and sales for a better user experience on the site.
  • Helps to create A/B testing scenarios.
  • Can be too cumbersome from a navigation standpoint.
  • Difficult to set up new users and manage user security/authority.
  • It's expensive.
It is well suited for ecommerce platforms that need to manage products internationally as well as larger websites. It is less appropriate for smaller websites or platforms/products that are more local or nationally based.
