Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Business Catalyst
We are a digital marketing/web design agency that uses Business Catalyst hosting for our web sites and sites we design for our customers. We prefer Business Catalyst over WordPress because it is more secure. B.C. web hosting plans include integrated marketing tools which can result in a savings for our customers (e.g. email campaigns ... no third party app). Adobe's technical support is excellent and the B.C. community is filled with helpful and skilled designers/developers.
- Continues to upgrade/improve the platform. Moved hosting to Amazon cloud, a more secure environment. Added B.C. widgets factory to greatly enhance modules used.
- BC apps are being developed by a third party (bcappstore.com). BC Gurus is a great platform for getting tutorials on how design, coding, and more. And they provide client tutorials.
- Recent addition of Liquid logic on the server is the closest thing to server side programming on BC.
- Great tech support.
- I wish tech support would address issues with scripts, style sheets.
- It would be very helpful if B.C. partners were notified about improvements, maintenance schedule, etc. instead of spending time researching.
- Better customer service
- Faster site builds.
- Workflow notifications and faster response time.
As a partner, you have the option to use B.C templates or buy B.C. templates from third parties. If you choose to custom design a site, you can use B.C. content holders and modules in the build. Quite frankly, I like to encourage potential clients to move to B.C. instead of relying on WordPress because of security and I believe B.C. sites are easier to maintain.
