It is being used for our entire website. Each department has its own web manager, but I manage the overall website design and coding. Everything runs through my team before anything gets published.
  • Organize pages
  • Create lists
  • Blogs
  • News articles
  • Usability
  • Reliability
  • Help documentation and support
Once set up it works pretty well. Administrative side of things is a little harder to use than other CMSs.

We use Progress Sitefinity as our CMS tool for our website as well as clients. Currently, just our marketing team and development team uses this tool as it keeps things streamlined and efficient. We use it to create websites. We've found that it helps successfully engage our internal team in developing successful websites.
  • Easy-to-use backend for developers, marketers, and creatives
  • Strong SEO tools for improved SEO optimizations
  • Lots of integrations
  • More integrations and easier to add as a marketer
  • Upgrade process is bulky and slow
  • Make advanced settings a little easier to navigate
It's a flexible UX platform that we really enjoy using. It allows us to scale the website as needed and this is a CMS we can grow with. You can edit code easily, as well as connect to many third-party integrations. The image library is a great tool that makes finding, resizing, and naming images easy.

Anytime we have questions or issues, they're great and very responsive. They provide quick feedback with ample details and walkthroughs. There are also great supporting documents and documentation on how to do things. Sometimes if you get the right person, they're able to actually do some of the work for us and help us.

Progress Sitefinity is used across the entire organization for the company website. It addresses the issue of complicated web updates by providing a tool to easily manage content. Also, Sitefinity allows us to easily create private content for different roles and membership types, which is key to our organization and online benefit distribution.
  • Easy to use CMS
  • Versatile for search setup
  • Information management can be complex and supported by the platform
  • Less code to do certain things
  • More out of the box integrations
  • More add ons for enhanced features
It is well suited for companies that don't have a lot of technical staff for the content editing end. However, for setup, upgrades and customizations, Sitefinity isn't the easiest to manage. It is also well suited for role management and users. It is very easy to create new roles and assign them to users. Likewise, creation of special content types, such as news and lists for content display is also intuitive and easy to do.
Support can be pretty good, even though, depending on the level of licensing, it can take longer to hear back from their team. They do have a phone option, which works well. Overall, they are knowledgeable, and helpful when needed. At times, support is able to access the system directly and troubleshoot critical items when needed.

Progress Sitefinity is the powerhouse behind Murdoch University's award-winning websites. It is our primary platform for engagement, news & events, course selection and broader information about the wide-ranging activities undertaken by the University. It serves our millions of domestic and international web visitors each year and is a key acquisition channel for attracting new students. With hundreds of pages and articles being edited and created a year, supported by nearly a hundred content editors and administrators, the platform is easy to use and maintain.
  • Progress Sitefinity's user-friendly interface allows us to extend use of the platform to wide range of users across the business.
  • Constant feature updates continue to add valuable new features and resolve prior issues. This is one of our primary reasons for retaining Progress Sitefinity.
  • The Module Builder tool has given us enormous flexibility in enabling us to add new dynamic content items to our Progress Sitefinity platform and support a wide range of business requirements (e.g. course listings, custom news articles, scholarships, etc).
  • Image management.
  • It is still not possible to accurately determine whether a image is in active use on the website or not (i.e. embedded on a page/widget). This makes it extraordinarily hard to properly audit our image libraries, which continue to grow and increase our hosting costs. This is without a doubt our number one issue with the platform.
  • Requirement to deploy/restart application for many updates.
  • While acknowledging that Progress Sitefinity uses best practice when it comes to further development of the platform, the need to deploy new code and/or restart the platform continues to be an inconvenience when managing a production website.
  • Lack of granular permissions on site sync and multisite.
  • Site sync and multisite are two of Progress Sitefinity's most valuable features in terms of managing our website environment. However, there is no out-of-the-box method currently for assigning a user role to a specific site (a custom role has to be created). Similarly, it is not possible to assign granular permissions to the site sync tool (a user who has access to Site Sync has access to sync all content on all sites). Having more control over these features would reduce the overhead for our site admins.
  • The license model in respect of subdomains (whereby an entirely new, full-cost license is required for each subdomain) is relatively uncompetitive and severely limits options when creating a network of sites.
Progress Sitefinity remains a little heavyweight for sites that require basic text content, or a limited number of pages. However, its flexibility (including the range of different content types if supports) make it a good choice for any organization requiring advanced content management capabilities at an affordable price.

As part of a modernization, our current CMS is being replaced with Sitefinity as an organizational product.
Serving both as the main CMS for several regions and HQ - as well as a departmental application CMS for standalone portals and platforms in a multi-tenant, multi-cloud approach. The main reason for standardizing on Sitefinity is its flexibility and its omni-channel capabilities, allowing us to write once and use across platforms, channels and APIs throughout the organization and externally.
  • 'Low-code structured content' (dynamic content types) is one of Sitefinity's most powerful features that allows you to structure content according to business needs, while at the same time dampening editorial freedom to ensure accessibility, meta enhancement, SEO and API consumption can be achieved.
  • Sitefinity's content provider model allows us to flexibly (by means of admin interface) easily aggregate or separate content sharing within a multi-site instance.
  • This proofs particularly powerful in emerging situations where there suddenly is a demand for content sharing across countries or regions.
  • Adaptability at its core.
  • While there's never a perfect fit for everything, it allows for easy code customization and extension being a .NET application at heart. Giving it a corporate edge over other custom solutions, whether it is on the development side or deployment side (on premise, IaaS or Azure DevOps Paas). And it has enabled us to put the system to use in its core feature - which is to manage content, where on other occasions we were able to take full advantage of its features such as A/B testing and personalization.
  • Roadmap visibility could be better.
  • Being a publicly traded company, long term roadmaps will have commercial impacts, however it would be great to see future visions expressed more clearly.
  • Video improvements.
  • While accessibility and concepts like 'low-bandwidth' are key these days, rich experiences are equally important. When it comes to 'videos', Sitefinity is trailing behind the current use cases where low/high-bandwidth versions, captions and subtitles are a requirement.
It's one of the easiest to use, easiest to customize CMS system available on the Microsoft technology stack.

Whenever there's an application need for user management, role-based permissions, workflows and page-content, it is simply not done to start custom development from scratch.

For complex 'factory-approaches' its architectural implementation shines brightest and allows for hybrid deployments, full Azure DevOps integration and ensures security and governance are not sacrificed.
Mission critical support allows us to have 24/7 support on the software, but while 24/7 also means multiple agents across various continent, Progress provides us with a unifying 'customer success manager' ensuring that all tickets and escalations are handled and communicated in a uniform matter.

We have implemented Sitefinity as the CMS of choice for various website projects. One of the huge considerations we have when choosing a CMS for our clients is the ease of use and the capability to integrate with external (3rd Party) systems easily. Sitefinity ticks both those boxes. It is extremely easy to use for our clients but still gives our developers the ability to customize where we need it. When used with the Digital Experience Cloud (DEC) that progress offers, it's an excellent marketing tool - top to bottom. We also evaluated the cost of Sitefinity against some other solutions and for the license and implementation fees, it was a no-brainer. Other CMS systems costing 2-4x as much could not compare.
  • Updates to the CMS software
  • Support on critical issues
  • Larger install base
  • Speed of support replies
It's great for a company that needs an easy to use CMS. The interface is very well thought out and organized in a way that you would expect. At the same time, because of how it's engineered - it's really easy to extend as you need. Integration with external data providers is possible and easy to do. The personalization and marketing capabilities are integrated - something that is not common in this price point. There is a licensing fee for the different editions of Sitefinity and that must be weighed with your project budget since this is not an open-source CMS. In my opinion, the license cost is well worth it having dealt with the costs and risks of using an open-source CMS.

We use Progress Sitefinity CMS for our own website across the entire organization. It allows our marketing people to quickly spin up pages and manage site content. It also allows us to personalize content based on personas and to analyze user behavior using Insight. We use it in conjunction with HubSpot to attract and track leads.
  • The interface for managing content and building pages is very intuitive.
  • The platform is extensible through custom modules, making it possible for our team to create any functionality we need.
  • Workflows make it easy to approve content before it goes live.
  • Insight allows us to assign personas based on user behavior and then customize content based on that persona.
  • I'd like to see more third-party integrations out of the box.
Sitefinity is well suited for marketing teams that need the ability to build landing pages and campaign pages that provide just the right amount of structure and the right amount of flexibility. When implemented correctly, marketers and content managers should only need developer intervention for significant site changes.

Sitefinity is less well suited for organizations with small budgets or that don't modify content on their site regularly.

Sitefinity is being used as our main website domain. We have over 50 other websites that prominently use WordPress. This site contains all the information for our nonprofit organization, IFMA. It's also used as a store and place for our users to become members and obtain resources. The website is used mostly by the marketing and web service team. These departments maintain and update information such as new events, posts, and services on a daily basis.
  • Able to organize our content
  • Easy to maintain and edit information
  • Have the ability to have multiple users working on the same page at the same time
Progress Sitefinity is a very good tool to use a more large company. It as simple as WordPress but with more flexibility and customizable. It is simple for non-developers to get their hand and use. It also has good administration abilities to give users certain roles and permissions.

Currently being used by multiple departments in the organization. Sitefinity Progress has allowed them to be able to submit content and create forms without any I.T. intervention. It also helps address some administrative overhead so we can focus on improving our overall web presence and back-end server technology rather than helping folks edit.
  • Modern platform.
  • Good customer support.
  • Full featured.
  • Upgrades could be smoother.
  • Licensing could be more tailored toward our industry.
  • Could be considered to have some performance bloat. Would like to see options to slim down the page sizes.
Well suited for a large organization where you would have many editors. Software seems very secure and less "hackable" than some of the open source platforms.
  • no training
Pretty solid support. They are responsive in the windows they say they are.
Yes
Some go better than others. The upgrades have been better/easier lately.

We currently use Progress Sitefinity CMS across our agency. We use it for our main public facing website, we also use it for smaller programmatic websites and our intranet.
  • Drag and Drop Widgets
  • Creating Templates and Pages
  • Website Templates and Themes
  • Third Party Widgets and Tools
Progress Sitefinity is well suited for organizations that need non-technical users to maintain portions of the website without having to rely on IT for support. Progress Sitefinity is less appropriate as it relates to customizing existing templates with third party integrations.

We use Sitefinity internally as a CMS for some of our own company sites, as well as offer to build websites and services using Sitefinity. We develop web applications and websites and use Sitefinity as our primary CMS for the solution.
  • It has very granular permissions for users in the backend.
  • You can customize pretty much anything you'd like for a tailored experience.
  • Initialization times are really the only thing that I can see improving on.
  • Documentation could be a little more structured.
For clients that want custom features and ease of use when it comes to editing their own website, Sitefinity is a great solution for that. We've had many clients want different views of, for example, a staff widget. Being able to make as many templates as they want and easily implement them by dragging and dropping with the editor to place them anywhere on the page is great.

We are a Sitefinity partner who uses the CMS platform to build custom websites for various clients. Sitefinity is an appealing solution for clients who need something robust, without of of the box modules that can either be customized or integrated to meet their needs. It also is a secure option that many of our clients value.
  • Custom modules allowing us to integrate client-required technology
  • Secure backend that can house form data
  • Occasionally we run into tracking issues where the Sitefinity native code strips out pixel data
  • User limitations can be frustrating
Sitefinity is well suited for complex websites that [find] value from having shared content that can be updated centrally for sitewide deployment. It also is relatively user-friendly to operate in once you are familiar with the interface and allows a host of custom modules to be built and deployed. However, it is not always appropriate for clients on a budget who don't require the technical benefits to Sitefinity.

Content Management. It is used agency wide. It helps users with our external content management and internal employee messaging portal.
  • Easy to use - especially for new content managers
  • Great product support/TA
  • Maybe more pre-set templates
  • Expanded programming options for forms/social media outreach
Progress Sitefinity is well suited for users that are not familiar with programming and do not have the ability to manage something like an open source software. It is less suited for clients that want the ability to customize at a high or intricate level.

Progress Sitefinity is being used by our marketing team as a site content management system. We use it to create new content and to upload images. It allows our marketing team to engage with our online audience and to remain current/accurate in our messaging. It is managed by our team webmaster, but it is used by many members on our team to create and duplicate landing pages. It also allows us to create messaging at various touchpoints. This is especially useful when urgent messages need to be communicated.
  • Landing pages that include metadata, UTM tracking, and vanity URLs. These landing pages are easy to create and can be duplicated in a very short team.
  • Site content management - It is easy to add text content and to upload new images.
  • Messaging - We often need to create urgent messages related to a storm warning. This allows us to create message units or widgets that alert our policyholders.
  • Landing pages are easy to duplicate but could be easier to customize.
  • Reporting is limited. If reporting could be automatically tied to Google Analytics that would be a plus.
  • An SEO optimization tool that looked for errors and suggested improvement would be very helpful.
Sitefinity is very cost-effective and support is good. After the 12.0 update, we were able to eliminate use of tools like Unbounce and Optimizely. Having one content management system with broad functionality is very valuable. Sitefinity does many things well like A/B testing, landing page development, and messaging. It is not the best for customization, but it is improving. The one area that would help is more training. Very few webmaster candidates had familiarity with Sitefinity.

The whole organization uses Sitefinity. Primarily it is a marketing tool, but has grown into a company wide resource that allows all departments to reach out to the community and let everyone know what each department can offer.
  • Easy to manipulate and organize widgets on a page
  • Interface to create custom widgets
  • Keeping up to date with JavaScript libraries
  • More features and control to form management
Sitefinity is well suited for a company with a programmer available, especially if there are any custom widgets. If custom widgets aren't needed then a company with the need to keep clients engaged and coming back would do well with this software. Sitefinity is less suited for a company that has static information or large volumes of PDFs that need to be downloaded.

Sitefinity is used to allow employees from different departments to manage their own web departments web content. This solves the problem of having to have a dedicated employee just for web updates. Sitefinity allows for faster web posts and more timely information to our stakeholders.
  • Sitefinity allows people with little of no development skills to publish content to a webpage
  • Provides a way to manage email lists.
  • Allows for feedback from our stakeholders
  • Sitefinity has been very well designed for our need (though our needs are small)
Sitefinity works great when you need a way for people without development skills to interact with the web. Sitefinity may not be needed if you are a very small company or individual looking for only a static webpage. Sitefinity does take time to develop, setup, and build forms for lots of content.

We use Sitefinity as a CMS for our corporate website etap.com and several sub-domains for development. When we purchased the software in 2015, we found that we needed quite a bit of customization of which we rolled back a considerable portion because of our own learning curve of what you can do with Sitefinity. We tried to implement multiple-site replication for our Chinese office and other places, but found that the cost for multi-site licenses is expensive and we couldn't find the development and support staff to work with. Languages was another area where we struggled since workflows didn't work with language roles. Otherwise we have been using the CMS across the company with Marketing being the driving force for content and development.
  • Depending on the usage, it is pretty easy to work with page templates and build content widgets
  • Content syncing with SiteSync works great
  • Implementation of languages works well
  • Personalizing page with persona, country or other specific content works well
  • We are using release 9.2 right now and are in the process of updating. Using mail templates with forms is a important missing piece.
  • Better connectivity of the Digital Experience Cloud with the site content.
  • E-commerce, biggest disappointment! Apparently new integration with 3rd party available, but we specifically purchased Sitefinity to have an integrated e-commerce platform.
  • MVC page templates
  • User guides are very often not very user-friendly for non-developers.
  • Straight forward websites without e-commerce and a few languages - great.
  • You can develop your own modules/widgets and get most work done without needing a developer. You will need a consultant or developer for the initial setup and deployment.
  • Sites like ours, etap.com, with dynamically generated pages via API, languages, event management, etc. difficult.
  • E-commerce is so basic that it is hard to do any sort of customization. basic e-commerce tools are missing.
  • Release 12.0 however looks promising.

We use it internally and are also a solutions partner that implements Sitefinity for our clients, should the solution meet their requirements. On a whole, the Sitefinity product comes with a large tool kit and can handle many business requirements with out-of-the-box functionality. Its open API makes it easy to integrate with other systems as well.
  • Scales well
  • Fully integrated marketing features
  • Very strong API layer
  • Many out-of-the-box integrations available
  • Their eCommerce add-on has a very limited feature set
  • Support for their partners can be better
  • Pricing can be confusing
Sitefinity is a great fit for medium to enterprise level websites that require a robust WCM solution that can integrate with other systems, be customized to meet business requirements and can scale as needed. Implementation will require a partner or individual that is well-versed in Sitefinity. If implemented correctly, managing content for non-technical and business users is very simple and straightforward.

In 2012, I moved our organization from being reliant on outside vendor for all content additions/changes to using a content management system (CMS). Sitefinity was the best choice for our company because I wanted a CMS that was .NET based for integration with other Microsoft platforms, was a proprietary system for a predictable and stable platform, was inexpensive, and was easy to use.
  • Makes it easy for an administrator to assign roles for others in the organization to contribute content.
  • Easy for administrators to know when new content has been created and is ready to be reviewed and approved.
  • Its licensing model makes it very affordable for small and medium sized business to adopt the platform.
  • They continue to update the platform with new features
  • We have created a Chinese version of our site. I do not read or speak Chinese; however, I cannot create a role for one of our Chinese employees to be an administrator of the Chinese portion of our site. They must either be an Administrator for the entire site, or an editor for the entire. This creates additional effort / hassle for the team.
  • I have what I believe to be a simple question for the owners of Sitefinity. I wanted to see about using Sitefinity with AWS. Our web agency says that we cannot ask the owners a question, because they will only respond to an "issue". Because we cannot get an answer from Telerik, we are trying to figure this out on our own....and spending a lot of money along the way.
  • It is difficult to find one agency that understands both the front end design capabilities and the back-end technology capability of the platform.
Ideal for companies who are a Microsoft shop, and are small to medium sized businesses. But if you want all kinds of cool design possibilities and you have your own web designer, you may be better off with an open source product like Joomla.
