  • 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.

  • '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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Very flexible and easy to use to create new pages.
  • Customizable widgets allow for displaying data the way you need and want it to.
  • Simple to setup synchronization to additional servers.
  • Diagram or illustrate more use cases for server setups, and managing of upgrades.
  • I'd like to see the ability to synchronize from one server to multiple others at once.
  • Implementation assistance as part of the purchase rather than farming out to 3rd party, although they did answer every question we asked in order to determine our best architecture setup.

  • Good quality of technical support, and a renewal/sales representative that is willing to work with you.
  • Lots of features and room for customization.
  • Delay in getting technical support tickets assigned.
  • Performance is a bit of an issue, but that may be due to our on-premise infrastructure.

  • The product is user-friendly and robust.
  • Keeping content organized is easy.
  • Sitefinity is easily customizable and relatively intuitive for developers.
  • Upgrading to new versions is time consuming. There are always several errors to work through. Each upgrade has to be completed individually, instead of offering cumulative updates.
